All right, Final Fantasy fans, you can go ahead and breathe a big sigh of relief. According to a statement made by Square-Enix CEO Yoichi Wada via Twitter, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still in development!
The statement came in response to last week's rumor that the game (originally announced in 2006) was being quietly cancelled to avoid bad press. Wada mentioned that he had just taken part in a meeting about the game, and remarked on the incredible quality of the in-game cityscape, saying it could make you lose your footing.
That was a pretty quick response, Square-Enix! I'll hold off on any predictions of greatness for now--Team Fortress 2 is one of the greatest games ever made, and it went through nine years of development--will Final Fantasy Versus XIII, its hilarious hair, Matrix suits and floating swords be worth the six-year wait we've been put through?
