Nomura briefly talks Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy X HD

This weeks Weekly Famitsu has an interview with Tetsuya Nomura, and with it, he briefly commented on Versus XIII and X HD.

The Final Fantasy X HD comment was just mentioning that it is being produced by Square Enix’s 1st Production Department, or in other words, the studio that handles Final Fantasy.

Regarding Versus XIII, Nomura mentioned that he’s been checking new media to be revealed to the press, and in comparison with last year’s trailer, the expression of the visuals has increased quite a bit. Much like any modern Final Fantasy, Versus will have a mix of real time and pre-rendered cutscenes. The ratio is said to be 7:3, to which the later is CG FMV created by Visual Works.. The team’s ability to express real-time graphics has rapidly increased, although in some cases it couldn’t do, which is why the Noctis and Stella meeting scene has been switched to a pre-rendered scene. Pre-rendered scene won’t get in the way of controlling the game itself, however.

As for when we’ll next see Versus, Nomura says that while an event has not yet been scheduled (they’re still working out details, but a reveal will happen this year), the next time the game is seen, it will be running on an actual PS3.
