Those who have been following Final Fantasy XIII-2‘s development will have heard that you can control characters during a live cutscene. Versus is going one step further, and is letting you control characters during every single cutscene, including the pre-rendered scenes, according to Tetsuya Nomura.
All the pre-rendered scenes, the ones with the movie-esque quality – think the scene from Bevelle in FFX when they are sliding down from the airship, that kind of pre-rendered – will be rendered in real time, giving players the opportunity to move and do things during the cutscene. Nomura made his intentions clear during the interview with Famitsu – he wants the player to never stop feeling like they are playing.
Other revelations include that this game is unlike the usual Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy Type-o and Kingdom Hearts, with battles changing on a player’s actions. While no release date was given, Nomura stated he had a time-frame in mind.
