    Welcome to the Square Enix 1st Production Department Premier hype and discussion thread!

    ? What is it?
    The Square Enix 1st Production Department Premier (Formerly Fabula Nova Crystallis Conference) is an event that willl be held today at the Toho Cinemas in Roppongi Hill in Tokyo. Think of it as the Closed Mega Theater in previous Tokyo Game Shows or the DK?3713 event held a few years back.

    ? Why is it so important?
    Because Square Enix will finally reveal more details regarding Final Fantasy Agito XIII and Versus XIII. Final Fantasy XIII, Agito XIII and Versus XIII are the currently announced games that conform the Fabula Nova Crystallis label. Think of it as what Square Enix did with the Ivalice Alliance label, which consisted of Final Fantasy Tactics A2, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, Final Fantasy XII: international Zodiac Job System and Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings.

    ? What else can we expect?
    Nomura has already shed some details in this subject: "In addition to the Fabula Nova Crystallis related titles, there will be Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts 3D and Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy.", however, in the last time several intriguing trademarks and actions by Square Enix allow us to expect even more.
    Realistic expectations:
    -Final Fantasy Agito XIII (PSP) new trailer, release date, gameplay tidbits and hardware bundle revealed. More details in tomorrow's Famitsu and/or the next issue of Jump.
    -Final Fantasy Versus XIII (PS3) new trailer, release date, gameplay tidbits, voice cast and hardware bundle revealed. More details in tomorrow's Famitsu and/or the next issue of Jump
    -Details of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix (PSP)'s Secret Episode.
    -Dissidia 012 [duodecim] (PSP) character reveal, new trailer.
    -A reminder of Final Fantasy IV Complete (PSP) Collection's release date.
    -Kingdom Hearts 3D (3DS) release time frame.
    Semi-realistic expectations:
    -Final Fantasy XIII-2 announcement. (Website registered in the US)
    -Final Fantasy Haeresis XIII announcement. (Trademarked)
    -Final Fantasy Type-0 announcement. (Trademarked)
    -Dissidia Duodecim Prologus announcement. (Trademarked)
    -Before Crisis 3DS announcement. (Hajime Tabata wants to do it)
    Unrealistic expectations:
    -Final Fantasy V 3DS remake announcement. (SE is also releasing FFV in the VC today in Japan. Coincidence?)
    -Final Fantasy VII HD remake announcement.
    -Final Fantasy Legends Wii port announcement.
    -Final Fantasy XV announcement.

    ? Where can I see it?
    You can see it by yourself asuming you are in Tokyo and were one of the 300 people invited to each screening of the event. If you weren't then you can watch a stream, assuming you were one of the 10,000 people chosen by Square Enix to watch it. Otherwise you'll have to content with liveblogs (if there are any) and leaked details. There is however a chance that someone out of those 10,000 people will do a stream... of the stream! We can only hope! Famitsu will most likely have screens and photos when the event begins. You should check Siliconera and Andriasang too.

    Looking forward to information regarding Versus XIII. And if they do announce XIII-2, that would be awesome.

    Exactly. It's 2 AM of the 18th. So yes, it is today.
    EDIT: As of this post's moment I think it's like 4 AM actually...

    The thought of FF7 being remade both thrills and terrifies me. I'm thrilled because it deserves a remake to get people over the Lego like graphics and to show its true potential. But I'm also worried because I'm sure there are people out there which will demand a way to revive Aerith. They just can't let go, even after all these years. Hell, I love FF7. I've written two fairly epic fanfics, one of which could have seen her revived, the option was there. I chose not to take it. Tetsuya Nomura always said she was destined to die. Who am I to argue?

    I wouldn't mind a few more chunks of Duodecim info though. In fact I want to see Kaze from FF:Unlimited revealed. He'd use his red pistol for standard attacks, in EX mode he'd thaw the Magun, and his EX Burst would be you selecting the Soil Charge Triad, with the final attack being dependant on the combination you choose. The idea obviously needs a little work but the framework's there.

    Only thing i'm interested in is the new Dissidia.
    Wish it were coming sooner.

    They need to let FF7 lay though. I'm getting tired of seeing it.

    Personally I think the FF7 saga needs one final chapter set right at the end to tie up all the loose ends. Show what happens to Cloud and Tifa, etc. Thankfully you don't have to wait for a game to tell you how it might all end. Just go to fanfiction.net and look for me [​IMG]

    availiable* on*
    Please remember an HD remake is in the "Unrealistic expectations" section, meaning, it probably won't happen. At least not now.

    It was a little glitch because of me using Opera's auto-refresh thing. Everytime it refreshed a new comment was made. ;-;

    It seems that Famitsu will also be live blogging: http://www.famitsu.com/news/201101/18039375.html It's in Japanese thought.



    Wait, auto-refresh function? I didn't know Opera had that.
