Despite rumor, “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” still in development

A couple of days ago, Kotaku had reported that the long-in-development “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” had been cancelled and that Square Enix had not made it public so it would not make their stock prices drop.

Well, all the fanboys and fangirls can breathe a sigh of relief because t turns out that the rumor is just that – a rumor.

“Theres someone making a false rumor that Versus was cancelled, Haha….Just a minute ago the regular Versus meeting had ended. If you saw the presentation of the city, it’d knock you off your feet,” Yoichi Wada, president of Sqare Enix, said on Twitter.

All this was based on a rumor from an anonymous tip. It was reported that Square Enix wanted the game to die out in a whisper and just fade away.

This sent an uproar in “FF” community because a lot of people wanted this game to come out, myself included. The trailers were amazing and the gameplay shown made it seem like this game could be an instant hit whenever it came out.

“Final Fantasy Versus XIII” was first announced at E3 in 2006, but after that it was rarely heard of. We’re being kept in the dark about specifics of the story, but it from what we’ve seen and what Wada had said, it looks to be a good one.
