A few days ago Kotaku posted a report claiming that they had heard from multiple sources that Final Fantasy Versus XIII had been cancelled. In response, Square Enix’s CEO, Yoichi Wada refuted those rumors over Twitter, stating that the project was still alive and well.
Wada reaffirmed that the six year old game was indeed still in development, and that he had just attended a meeting with the game’s staff. He even bragged that the quality of the game’s graphics could “make you lose your footing.”
Of course, Wada didn’t explain why the game (which was announced near the beginning of this console cycle,) has taken so long to make, or why we haven’t seen or heard anything new regarding the game in over a year.
