Rumors about Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s silent cancellation had been reported earlier. Today, these rumors (spread by Kotaku) have been put to rest as Square Enix’s boss, Yoichi Wada, denied these rumors and confirmed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII has not been cancelled and is still in production.
Here is what Yoichi Wada posted on Twitter today: “It seems someone is spreading a false rumor about Versus being canceled. Heh, just a few moments ago a regularity meeting for Versus ended. If you were to see the city [in the game] presented today, you wouldn’t be able to stand from surprise, lol.”
Not only did he placate fans by denying the rumors, but he also got them excited by mentioning this city. There is still no release date for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but news is expected on September 1st at the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event.
