FF13 Versus: Spin off
« on: September 27, 2008, 05:18:52 AM »
This game, though it is in the same universe, is obviously a spinoff game. Post your sentiments here.

hmmm i guess it could be considered a spin-off but i dont know whenever i call it a spin-off it makes it feel like a slightly less cool game

tetsuya said it couldn't be like a FF XIV because this kind of game could just not be a regular number

so they took the fact that it has a dark storyline and made it FF Versus XIII

i dont like calling it a spin-off its awesomeness is beyond spin-off level :D

when the release date approaches I'll ask Bram to make a Versus sub-forum in the FFXIII forum.

What about FF Agito XIII? I heard that would be on the PSP, and IMO it looks really cool from the pictures I've seen.

Spin-off or not from what I've seen it looks awesome and that's no reason to complain.

What if it is a spin-off. It doesn't mean its a bad game. I think that those spin-offs are going to be far better. We will just have to wait. ;D

Haven't heard anything like that, I heard it was a mobile game that's been moved to PSP.

Makes sense since [I assume] the battle system is card-based... Maybe you get to duel or something like that with multiplayer. But I don't think it would be 'online', since they say that PSPs out of Japan doesn't have Infrastructural multiplayer function :)

I highly doubt it will be a card game, or anything like Yugioh(dumb piece of **** IMO) I think it will be more like, because Cards play some role to the story, that you would find certain cards, like a Fira Card, and once you obtained it, you could use that spell for as long as you have that card, and then you could level up cards and such to increase power and decrease MP cost. It'll almost be like Materia in Crisis Core or FF7, I think.

Since they play a role in the story, there may be some very important cards that you'd only have for a certain time or something.

I'd like to find out more how these three games are connected, and if everyone meets up in the end, where in the timeline on XIII these games happen about each other, and and their position more in the story, rather than Battle system.

Although I hope the actuall FFXIII keeps to either turn based action like XII or some other way, just so it's not completely an action RPG like CC.

Interesting point about the cards. I can't wait in any case. As for game connections from what I've heard there are absolutely NONE other than crystals in all three.

also wee187

tetsuya nomura said that the games are in the same universe but dont really have anything else in common
i also think he said that they take place during different time periods

i highly doubt they will meet in the end because square enix would never bring the main characters into a ff game from a different ff game

I remember reading somewhere that FFVXIII is now the core game of the FFXIII universe. In other words, FFXIII is the spin-off, not FFVXIII. Is there any truth to this? I really don't know. I just think that you shouldn't judge a game as "spin-off" before it has even come out... They seem to be equal in standard.
