Final Fantasy Agito XIII will have 'unique' multiplayer, still exists

Do you remember a little game Square Enix announced a thousand years ago called Final Fantasy Agito XIII? Guess what! We have some new details to share about it. Crazy, we know, but Agito is definitely still in the works...

For those not in the know, when Square Enix first announced Final Fantasy XIII, it also revealed two other games called Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII, but ever since that very introductory announcement, we hardly ever heard anything about Versus, and nearly forgot about Agito.

But now, Square Enix has broken its silence in an interview with Famitsu. Director Hajime Tabata was asked about the progress of Agito, which is being developed for mobile phones and the PSP.

"Development’s going along smoothly, and it’s going to be a really intense game, the sort where you’re using the Fire spell like a gun in a shooter," he said.

Tabata also talked briefly about the multiplayer aspect of the game, and since he's a Square Enix employee, he had to be cryptic about it - that must be in their contracts or something.

"Agito XIII isn’t going to be the typical kind of multiplayer game where people gather around and play together. It’ll have something unique and exclusive to itself."

So now we have more questions, and still no real answers, except that... the game's still being made. So there's that!

    Wow! Talk about rising from the dead?! Finally some news about Agito... now, how about Versus? Seems like Agito has some interesting points and being a FF fan, it quite made my day that this game is still in the works...

    Mobile phones? As in iPhone? Or is SE still developing for the older-model flip-phones in Japan? I have to admit, their efforts for the iPhone so far have been first class. I'd be pretty excited if it came to the platform. But no release date yet, four years in? Oh, and where's Versus XIII? That's the whole reason I bought a PS3! Gah. I hate that I love SE. It's always a bad romance.

    Lol I'm a huge FF fan and I totally forgot about this game. When the hell are this and Versus going to come out?

    I am shocked and amazed that this game still exists.

    Ah, finally some news! Shame it's multiplayer on the PSP; I don't have many friends that have a PSP, let alone share an interest in Final Fantasy...
