Who said Final Fantasy Versus XIII would skip today’s 25th anniversary event?
While not totally inaccurate, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada did name drop the game during the exhibit’s opening ceremony. He started off by saying that the series [naturally] isn’t done. In fact it’s appeared on a variety of consoles. Of course, Versus XIII is also in production. He went on to say, “When [the game] reaches the level where it gives you that nostalgic, “this is Final Fantasy!” feeling, I want to show it to everyone.”
In case you needed yet another confirmation.
Outside of that, Tetsuya Nomura did a sketch of Noctis for the event. “Congratulations on the 25th anniversary. Please wait for his turn to appear.”
