Final Fantasy XIII

PS2-FFXIII kostete Square Enix anderthalb Jahre


"Final Fantasy XIII" war nicht einfach nur für PlayStation 2 geplant. Senior Produzent Yoshinori Kitasesagte, dass der Wechsel zur PlayStation 3 Square Enix "anderthalb Jahre" gekostet hat.

Gestern haben wir Bilder der PS2-Version von "Final Fantasy XIII" gezeigt. Die PS3-Version jedoch wurde auf der E3 2006 angekündigt.

Kitase sagte zu dem Thema:

"Final Fantasy XIII was originally meant to be a PS2 title, but we had to switch systems due to the arrival of the PS3. That cost us about one and a half years and was constantly a case of trial and error."

Doch ist diese Tatsache nicht nur mit kritischem Auge zu sehen, denn Kitase fügte hinzu:

"However, because we worked so hard at the beginning, we got to a cruising speed much faster then anticipated and therefore could start on the translation and international voice recording process at an early stage of the development. It's because of this that we can release both the European as well as the American version barely three months after the Japanese release."
