Square Enix smashes rumors of Final Fantasy Versus XIII's cancellation

Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII remains in development.

A comment from Yoichi Wada has been provided in light of recent rumors that suggested work on the title had ceased, with various elements now being retooled for Final Fantasy XV.

On Twitter he laughed at rumors of Versus XIII’s cancelation, going on to say that today the team just finished their regular staff meeting on the game, which included a presentation on some of the game’s towns that he took part in.

“It seems someone is spreading a false rumor about Versus being canceled. Heh, just a few moments ago a regularly scheduled meeting for Versus ended. If you were to see the city etc. presented today, you wouldn’t be able to stand from surprise, lol.”

So there you have it. Straight from the top.

Update: Yoko Shimomura, the game’s composer, has also weighed in on the situation. She retweeted Wada’s message and soon after replied, “About that, please rest assured.”
