Next week's Jump has a bit for news for certain games. Most likely recaps of stuff that'll be at Jump Festa.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep (PSP) - There are scenes that show Maleficient talking to Terra, further hinting that Sleeping Beauty will be one of the new worlds in the game. Cinderella is also confirmed.






Dissidia Final Fantasy (PSP) - Squall Leonhart is the 5th FF hero to be revealed. There are also scenes where he talks to Ultemecia. You can level up and gain abilities in the game. When Squall uses his limitbreak multi sword slash move you can time continous attacks with the R button to increase the damage.






Blue Dragon Plus (DS) - Takes place 1 year after Blue Dragon. Massive BD spoilers: It is set after the end of BD when the world has opened up and the Cube worlds are abundant. The characters travel through these various Cube worlds during the adventure. There are many screens of battles.

Even if the game sucks, the fanservice will satisfy me immensely.

Don't think so. The blogger that provides early Jump news these days is this guy: http://taletalesource.blog69.fc2.com

He didn't mention anything about DQV, and I'm ignoring all those anime games that have no real info on them. KH DS and KH Coded are in it too, but he doesn't say anything interesting about them. Need scans.

Nope. I'm starting to doubt it'll even make 2008. Seems like they're kinda behind. They were supposed to show realtime FFVersusXIII footage and show FFXIII playable "before the end of the year" but they've totally missed that deadline.

Actually, I think there is zero chance that either will come out in 2008. Really, even if the game is far along, they are waiting for a good userbase. The game will sell, but the numbers are a bit low right now. Annoying thing is Nomura even said he was playing a section of versus a while back in a n interview... As you indicated, they seem to hold off hyping their games off too much until they are in the home straight. Its not a bad policy, but ff is an established series, people (me) just want some info and gameplay footage to chew on. Otherwise there are other games coming out that Im interested in, but this is the series where I like to see a little of the world they are creating.

cheers trin for those dissidia screens, hope it turns out good enough. It certainly looks nice.

Niiiice. Bonus points to Nomura for sticking with Amano's design.

If they're using the final bosses from each game, I wonder how they'll portray the Cloud of Darkness?

You are correct. There is zero chance either game will be released in 2008. The "big winter game" slot for next year is already taken by DQIX; even if FFXIII were ready and the userbase were big enough, they'd need to push it off to a different quarter, and probably across the divide into the next fiscal year.

funny thing is, considering how long FFXII took, Im not surprised FFXIII is taking long as well, it is an even bigger undertaking, and, at least given what they have said, the game seems to be very ambitious (very fast paced battle system, more interactive dialogue etc)

FFXII's development length had less to do with the size of the undertaking and more to do with the guy in charge being unable to handle the size of the undertaking.

FFXIII's 'development' length has less to do with the size of the undertaking and more to do with the size of the userbase.

I can't prove any of this, but more recent considerations are pointing me towards it having more to do with a gameplay design that was more technically ambitious than the team realized, followed by brutal judo chops by The Mgmt. when the team (who hadn't developed a full-on FF before, mind) took longer than intended in getting it ready.

(Which is all beside the point of "FF XIII is late because S-E wants it to be late," which I agree with entirely. :lol )

So the FFII hero (can't remember name) and the Emperor as well? Horrible level up system for battle as well? Would be corny but funny, the more he gets hit the higher his defense raises in battle.

wow, Dissidia looking great as usual. i can't wait for some impressions of how it actually plays.

if they put snow white and cinderella's worlds (before they were destroyed) + a sword in the stone world into birth by sleep/any KH game, i would be so happy ... seeing aurora already makes me crazy happy though!

No, there was last week's Jump (weekly), and last week's V Jump (monthly). This is the thread for this week's Jump (weekly) and we only have the Dissidia and KH scans so far.
