interesting to note how much of that is in the final product, an aspect that was barely shown in the Versus/early XV trailers but mentioned by Nomura.

i imagine both teams had a hard time trying to mesh the tragic tone to this light-adventure with friends type of story.

I wouldn't say the Versus XIII trailers didn't have their lighthearted moments or had troubles portraying them the 2011 trailer most definitely had them, same with the 2008 trailer

It's just that the Versus trailers had a main focus on some of the badass darker aspects of it where most of it's tragedy and drama came from
While they didn't come together because of it their road trip was clearly a escape Insomnia, attain crystal, get revenge not at all like XV now there definitely would have been fun moments within the road trip it would just know when to shut up and be serious.

Neither Tabata or Nomura's team had trouble with this what they had trouble with was Square's meddling
In their attempt to make the game 1 singluar title they cut out most of the memorable darker moments from the game they exist but they exist through characters we don't give a shit about.
The XV Universe is also a mess because of this nonsense which most of, if not all of it comes from Versus XIII except stripped, altered and poorly segmented

my point is: the focus on the early trailers was all on the heavy-stuff with only a bit of light moments with the bros, but if you take some later interviews from Nomura, it actually seems the focus would be on the trivial friendship moments ("it's a simple story").

kinda like the case everyone was expecting Noctis to be your usual brooding guy, but then Nomura comes out saying to don't be fooled by the early trailers; it seems he was still adding up to his vision, or maybe his vision wasn't as fixed as many thought.

This.

Honestly sometimes i have a hard time recalling another product as severely misunderstand as Versus XIII/XV when it came to exaggerated expectations vs actual facts.

I remember the Sasuke comparisons like i was yesterday...:chocowalk::chocowalk::chocowalk:

Few day ago there was new leak about Versus XV from 4chan again and this guy also give more info about FF7RE and FF16 too but i gonna bump only detail relate to Versus in here.

All this could be fake so don't expect much of it.

  • Final Fantasy Versus XV will start development right after KH3 is done, and it will release on PS4. Final Fantasy XVI is already in development (FFXV development changes once forced the work on FF16 to be put on hold for a long while and it's been resumed very recently), and will release on both PS4 and PS5; Final Fantasy XVII is only in the early concept stages, and will be only for PS5.

  • Final Fantasy Versus XV will be a rebuild/retelling/alternative version of Final Fantasy XV.

  • The game will be set in an alternate reality: the events in XV will be implied to have been nothing more than a Noctis' dream (that's why Noctis is shown sleeping on his throne).

  • The world will be entirely explorable this time; remember the map model shown in one trailer? That will be VersusXV's world map.

  • Insomnia will be present and fully explorable too, and you'll be in it as the invasion happens; other cities and areas that were initially planned but never made it in the final game, like Gralea, the kingdom of Solheim (which is loosely based on middle-east) and the capital of Tenebrae are now explorable.

  • The plot will be completely rewritten from scratch and will feature all the elements Nomura wanted in it, like Stella, the "eyes that can see the light of expiring souls", the country of Solheim and so on, while everything related to Kingsglaive will be completely removed.

  • The battle system will be way more KH-like, but it will still keep everything we've seen in FFXV like warp-strikes, counter/parry and so on. Also there will be character-switching like shown in the earlier Versus-XIII trailers.

  • There will be a gambit-like system to direct party member's behaviour.

  • New summons will be present, including Fenril, Phoenix, Odin, Alexander and the Magus Sisters. Ifrit, Bahamut and the Knights of the Round will be summonable this time.

  • Luna will not be present. Stella however will return, and will be a playable party member for almost half of the entire game. Also, some particular missions allow you to use some guest character (like Cor, Cindy, Aranea, and so on...) for a small period of time.

  • Etro will be the last boss. You'll fight her in an overtly spectacular final battle inspired by FF7's last boss.

Already hate it. Awful. And way too fake and not even in an entertaining kind of way, literally any Versus fanboy could type this.

Lol, did MercilessV write this as well?

Final Fantasy XVI is already in development (FFXV developmentchanges once forced the work on FF16 to be puton hold for a long while and it's been resumedvery recently), and willrelease on both PS4 and PS5; Final Fantasy XVII is only in the early concept stages, and will be only for PS5.
Thats some fake ass guesstimation going on here, pre-E3 tier. 4/10.

i don't think any normal sane person can believe this to be true (not implying that you do Momo)... i'm actually laughing because FFXV is still being updated -which wouldn't be the case if XV would be retconned so soon- and we still don't have any sight of FFVIIR.

my sides, one of the worst leaks 2/10.

I don't even believe any of it for a second, FFXVI, and XVII already in 'pre-production'? Come on, that right there, along with the 'dream' line and Stella already screams fake for me. I'd take OfLucii's Versus XIII leak over this.

Thanks for the heads up @Momo333 I dont go on 4chan so I miss leaks like this. That sounds amazing if true.

Seriously, why and how do you eat this shit up lol?

They are not remaking FFXV, at all. Ever. Period. The game did well overall. They aren't going to remake its story for the sake of "fans" lol. Be happy that we are getting content updates and DLC next year. That is the most "versus XV" we'll ever get.

Goddammit those who write this kind od shit and those who believe in this and refusing to use own brains.

everything related to Kingsglaive will be completely removed

This part sounds like 100% pure sort of shit in which only brainless will believe, forgetting even original script leaks and what team was talking in hundreads interview.
Do you not understand that thanks to ppl like u, others started to hate Nomura and everything what releated with him. *facepalm*

Im not attacking him personally. No way. He wrote that he just copied here, so its fine. I just wrote my thoughts about this situation as a whole, and pointed some moments from this leak which making it 100% shit.

if you want to trust so bad in any of the leaks, trust no other than OfLucii.

he revealed umbra would have a human form before someone posted a pic of the character for roberto ferrari, which also confirmed it.

his stories about FFXVs development and what he heard about Versus XIII plot are resonable as well, defintely the most trustworthy so far.

Tbh i'm still skeptical of him too, and in regards to the Umbra part he only claimed he'd have been a party member, but specifically denied any knowledge of knowing about Umbra having a human form back then despite the pic being surfacing around that time of the rumour (which doesn't make sense).

Essentially its still a rumour, but better written at least.
