World map, airships confirmed for FF Versus XIII


If you are one of the many round eyes who thought Final Fantasy XIII was too linear, then never fear. Final Fantasy Versus XIII' director, Tetsuya Nomura, has confirmed that his contribution to the Fabula Nova Crystallis saga will create a fine illusion of freedom, with a world map and old school airships. 

"Not everything is connected together, so the various areas have different levels of progress. However, you can fly across the world map in an air ship," confirms Nomura. 

Versus is one of Square Enix's biggest mysteries. We've only seen a few scraps of teaser footage and the occasional screenshot, with very little else to go on in between. From what we can tell, it's set on a totally different world than XIII, only containing a similar theme of humans being in thrall to more powerful beings. 

In any case, after my personal disappointment with XIII, I now look to this PS3 exclusive to plug the RPG gap. I really hope Versus can provide a better product so I can carry Square Enix round on a big chair like king of the town.
