In a recent interview by ffdream during the FINAL FANTASY 25th Anniversary Event held in London recently, the technology director from Square-Enix; Julien Merceron, gives some info relating to Agni’s Philosophy, Lightning Returns FINAL FANTASY XIII and FINAL FANTASY VERSUS XIII.
Here’s what he said:
Agni’s Philosophy: “Well, around June next year, there will indeed be something different around Agni’s Philosophy, which will perhaps be presented on platforms that are different from the ones being used so far. I can’t tell you more, I can only say that it’s not going to be only on PC.”
Lightning Returns FINAL FANTASY XIII: “The technology being used to develop the game, it shares a few things in common with Final Fantasy Versus XIII, although the game itself is meant to be rather different, although it will use certain elements of Final Fantasy XIII’s design and gameplay.”
He also adds that development on Lightning Returns is at a rather advanced stage, and Square Enix are using focus tests to identify the direction of the project, as it will be a unique episode in the Final Fantasy XIII world.
FINAL FANTASY VERSUS XIII: “The level of ambition for the game is very complex. “However, Yoichi Wada is pushing this team and project as far as possible,” Merceron says, adding that fans will be happy to have waited once more information on the game is announced.”
