Famitsu managed to score an interview with Tetsuya Nomura to ask about the process of a couple of games that are currently in development: Final Fantasy X HD, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Kingdom Hearts 3D and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.

About Final Fantasy X HD Nomura didn't had much to say about, only that the development on the game has started.

He was more open about Final Fantasy Versus XIII, saying the following:

  • Nomura recently did the latest check of the game. The visual expression capability has improved from the trailer that was released last year.
  • The game has a mix of real time and Visual Works pre-rendered CG. The ratio is 7 real time to 3 pre rendered.
  • The scene where Noctus and Stella meet for the first time has been made into a pre-rendered scene. This is because it's an example of an area where adding player control would not have a big effect.
  • Square Enix won't be holding an event ala last year's January press conference this year. However, Nomura said that he'd like to make some sort Versus related announcement/showing this year, although he can't say when or where.
  • The next time we see Versus XIII, we will get a look at it being controlled on actual hardware.

Regarding Kingdom Hearts 3D he said that the ending of the game is unconventional to the series and that the original idea was not approved. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy will be getting a second demo.

20/01 Update: Famitsu has mentioned that Square Enix's 1st Production Department is going to develop Final Fantasy X HD.
