Quantcast
Locked: Tetsuya Nomura provides FFXIII Versus info.

Forums - Sony Discussion - Tetsuya Nomura provides FFXIII Versus info.

Regarding Versus, Nomura said that there is a lot to announce about the game, but due to Square Enix's policy of promoting games in the order of their release, he's unable to say too much at present.

He provided just one intriguing bit, though: "There have been many questions regarding fields. It's not a completely open world. It's like the 2D FF games in HD. Although, in terms of looks, it's not a top-down view, it's like the screenshots that have been released. You'll move through the world from that view."

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

Not completely open world and like the 2D Final Fantasy games?

So... I remember I could go wherever I wanted to in Final Fantasy V and VI with airship or chocobos... except for the mountains (like they said in Versus XIII xD)... but if that's not "completely open world" then what's open world? xD

Release Final Fantasy Versus XIII nowwwwwwwwww!!! lol :P

What he meant is that the world won't be scaled the same on the world map as it is in towns, dungeons, etc.

It won't be like Oblivion, it will be like any pre PS2 FF games if you prefer.

Open World in the sense of Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV, where you're literally allowed to revisited anywhere at anytime. That's pretty much Open World Games.

So he doesn't mean full on Massive Maps that you can travel anywhere at anytime, just means that the maps are huge and it's far more open than linear.



Give us a screen, so we know what you mean!



 

I guess (and hope) there will be a point later in the game where you can travel back to any area.

We already know that the maps will be huge and that's more than enough.



I really hope that this one is incredible story-wise like 7 and from what I'm seeing its seems pretty legit.
