Looks like Tetsuya Nomura is putting The 3rd Birthday's Twitter account to full use. Earlier this week he kicked off by saying that he was under orders to tweet about Square Enix's reboot of Parasite Eve; however, he'll now be using it to provide fans with updates on other games that he is working on, like Final Fantasy Versus and Agito XIII.
Nomura went on to talk a bit more about Versus, explaining that the overworld isn't quite as open as most think it is. In fact, it's similar in concept to pre-PlayStation era Final Fantasies,
"There have been many questions regarding fields. It's not a completely open world. It's like the 2D FF games in HD. Although, in terms of looks, it's not a top-down view, it's like the screenshots that have been released. You'll move through the world from that view."Also, for those of you hoping to see Noctis and Stella at Gamescom this month, you'll be disappointed to know that neither will be making an appearance. Square Enix will be exhibiting only Kingdom Hearts and The 3rd Birthday at the event.
We'll have to wait for the Tokyo Game Show in September for anything on Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
