Hmm…well some interesting announcements made it out from Square-Enix’s invite only fan event DKΣ3713 in Harajuku, including news on the Final Fantasy XIII universe titles and Parasite Eve.
The DKS3713 title for the event finally makes sense now lol. From 1up:
“The event is properly known as DKS3713, which means: Dissidia, Kingdom Hearts, Sigma Harmonics, Parasite Eve The 3rd Birthday, Compilation of Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy XIII/Fabula Nova Crystalis.”
- It’ll come with a demo of Final Fantasy XIII
- It’ll also have new trailers for FF Versus XIII (which seems to remain a PS3 exclusive) and FF Agito XIII
- Speaking of FFXIII, it seems it will be dropping some time in 2009 (in Japan presumably)
Who knows how long the wait will be until we get anything…
FF Agito XIII and Parasite Eve 3 have moved development from cell phones onto the PSP system! Good, cuz who the hell plays games like that on their cell phones? Nobody in the frickin US, that’s who.
According to SE’s site for the event, the Kingdom Hearts series should have made an appearance in trailer form (Coded for mobiles, 358/2 Days for the DS, and Birth by Sleep for the PSP), as well as FF Dissidia for the PSP, and a new game (at least to my ears) called Sigma Harmonics, for the DS.
Well it certainly ain’t no FFVII remake lol, but I suppose getting a taste of FFXIII is still nice. That and the fact that it’ll be coming soon (hopefully no delays). Then again, who knows how long we in the US will have to wait for A) the bluray release of Advent Children, and B) the localization/360 development process for FFXIII. But on the plus side, the PSP will be getting two more exciting things to look forward to.
