Final Fantasy Versus XIII teased with perfume


We haven't heard anything more about PS3-exclusive Final Fantasy Versus XIII since reports of its demise were greatly exaggerated this summer. Maybe we should've been sniffing instead of listening. Hidemi Matsuzaka, general manager of the Square Enix figure brand Play Arts Kai, tweeted a picture of a certain new perfume scent today (via Gematsu).

The bottle is labeled Noctis, which (we wouldn't blame you for forgetting this by now) is the name of the prince who is protagonist of Versus XIII. Square Enix has released several Final Fantasy perfumes in the past, including scents for Cloud, Sephiroth, and Lightning.

Can't imagine the publisher would show off a new perfume for a canceled game, even if the title has been around since 2006. This tease may be just a morsel to keep fans going, or we may learn more about the future of Final Fantasy Versus XIII soon--say, at Sony's big meeting on Wednesday?

We can hope.

    Ok, here's a good time to tell a fun, true story. At the distant world's concert last thursday, Arnie (the conductor) introduced a song they were going to play from FF13. He asked "how many 13 fans do we have in here?" It gets a decent amount of cheers and such. He then goes on to mention that he heard Lightning Returns is coming out later this year. Literally NO ONE started cheering. Just some sarcastic "yeahs..." After that kind of reaction, everyone just started laughing and Arnie literally got confused, thinking he wasn't supposed to talk about it. Remember this hall is FULL of Final Fantasy fans, and they gave THAT kind of reaction to the next game in the series? This is just a sign that Square Enix needs to GET THEIR SHIT TOGETHER

    Let me qualify my following statement by saying that I am a huge FF fan and I loved 13 but: I am literally more excited for the planned redesign for FF 14 than I am for 13-3. I just don't get who that game is for.

    *Sighs* Stop fucking around square, and actually show us the damn game, y'know, the one announced FF game people are actually interested on >_> Considering their reported financial trouble, one would think they'd be more motivated than ever to please their consumers, and, y'know, sell their main products, not waste time developing paraphernalia that no one but the most obsessed fans of the project would give a crap about- A PROJECT THAT HAS TAKEN FOREVER TO COME OUT

    The thing is the final fantasy game I am interested in right now is the one that has been seen you know LR:FF13, I don't have any interest what so ever in Versus since we never see it, and I don't have time or energy to care for something I know nothing about.
  • BladedFalcon - February 18, 2013 3:31 p.m.

    A fair enough point to make, since we've seen nothing new from Versus for almost 3 years now. However, if you had seen or remembered the in-game footage and trailer that WAS shown back then, you'd probably understand why some people, such as myself, would rather see more of THAT game, rather than LR:FFXIII. Which doesn't look bad, but neither does it look spectacular, AND it carries the baggage of two highly divisive games that many didn't like at all.

    This whole thing smells kind of fishy to me :) But I am still not sure how they think perfume and games go together because the games I know don't exactly use it, but could use some.
