No confirmation of Final Fantasy XIII in 2008

50°
365w ago - After the new Famitsu scans were released, we got the exciting news that Toriyama is hoping to give the fans a glimpse of the game in the form of a demo sometime this year. He also stated that 2008 will be the year that we finally get solid details on Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

Somehow down the line this is been misinterpreted by many game sites, specifically Joystiq, that Tetsuya Nomura (Character designer) has promised the game will release in 2008. This, infact, is rather wrong. First, it's isnt even Nomura speaking, it's Motomu Toriyama, the games director. Instead he says that he hopes he can show the public a demo of Final Fantasy XIII this year. This is neither a promise or a release date. Another site Gamernode also makes an even worse mistake by publishing that Nomura stated this in an interview with Joystiq, which again is wrong because all the information comes from the new Famitsu scans.

Joystiq go on to say that Nomura has also promised a demo for the Playstation Network "a while before the games release", which is also false. Again, Nomura isn't even mentioned in the article and the Playstation Network isn't mentioned once. There might well be a demo on the Playstation Network at some point, but this article certainly does not confirm it for this year.

365w ago - Square-Enix is set to release its "Final Fantasy 20th Anniversary: Ultimania File 1 : Character" compilation for fans of the venerable franchise.

- May 2008: Final Fantasy 20th Anniversary Ultimania Spins 3: Battle/Special (expected to focus on the various systems and other details related to the engagements)

Rumor: Star Ocean 4 being developed for Xbox 360?

50°
381w ago - A user has found a job listing for 3D modelers, designers and programmers to work on two projects for an unnamed game company. The games are "the latest entry in a famous fantasy RPG series" and "a new fantasy RPG". Both games are on the Xbox360 platform, and the general location of the work place is given as the Ooimachi area, which is where Tri-Ace's offices are located.

One of these projects, "a new fantasy RPG", must be Infinite Undiscovery. The other project, "the latest entry in a famous fantasy RPG series", fits to be Star Ocean 4. Is the game going to be multiplatform or an Xbox 360 exclusive? Time will tell.
