Square-Enix clears the air around Final Fantasy Versus XIII, not held after all

Just when we thought it was game over for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, comes word that it was all just a big misunderstanding on our part. At least that’s what Square-Enix is now saying about the famous words of director Tetsuya Nomura, that were lost in translation between the pages of Famitsu and ourselves:

“Reports that development for Final Fantasy Versus XIII is on hold are false. The truth of the situation is that when free, some staff from the Versus team have been helping with the XIII team on development of Final Fantasy XIII. Development for both titles is continuing as originally scheduled.”

Our Japanese is a a little rusty, but we’re still trying to figure out how we ever came up with that silly idea in the first place. After all, Tetsuya Nomura only used the words “on hold” and said “the entire Versus team is helping to finish Final Fantasy XIII” once or twice. Whatever were we thinking?
