    If it releases next year in the West, I would expect it between July to October given SE's portable releases over the last 4 years.

    And yep there's a reason why it will be rated M for blood and gore.

    So New Game+ has an entirely different party to the first playthrough?

    I can't get my head around how they planning on getting that to work. It's really fascinating though!

    Speculation not based remotely in fact or any research: May well be there's some parts of the game where characters split-up (with so many of them that would be hardly surpirsing), so that some characters are doing things that aren't fully explored in the inital playthrough.

    Ordered the OST last week so hoping to get that soon in all it's Takeharu Ishimoto awesomeness (also heard Bump of Chicken's theme song and liked that, but I like most of Bump of Chicken's stuff). But looks nice for the game itself then, that's good.

    My (also completely uneducated) guess is that there will be extra story scenes that focus on a different segment of the cast in the New Game +. The game seems like it has a pretty big cast, so it's neat if they're planning to flesh out the stories of some of the minor characters.

    Have other games done NG+ modes where parts of the plot are fleshed out or you get new content that wasn't present the first time around? I know FFIV DS added a couple extra bosses for subsequent playthroughs, and I feel like there's probably other games that I'm forgetting.

    the computer geek in me would like to know what's the logic in their umd swapping method. Why does go from D1 -> D2 -> D1?

    Movies. The OP movie and ED movie on one disc, the game on the other.

    Maybe there is a copy protection piece to this together with a desire to sell the maximum number of copies possible. They don't want you lending Disc 1 to a friend after having finished it.

    Does Star Ocean 4 on the 360 did something similar?

    So...Is this game not part of the FFXIII cannon anymore? I haven't been keeping up with game news but apparently now this is called Type-0 and Versus XIII is vaporware. Strange times.
    Madness is a complete statement. Saying more would be pointless.

    Versus XIII is not vaporware, and after Duke Nukem Forever actually got released I'm not sure how the term vaporware is even applicable anymore.

    Yep, Versus XIII isn't vaporware, it's just in development Hell. I'd expect to start hearing more about it in 2012 now that Type-0 is out in Japan.

    That's the reason I'm most inclined to believe at the moment.

    Star Ocean 4's 360 disc-swap was entirely based on the location you were in, different planets were on different discs. Basically meant if you ever wanted to do any backtracking you needed to prepare for a large amount of disc-swapping, which was a bit annoying after a few times. I think Type-0 is doing it differently to that, but could be wrong.

    Thanks for answering my question so this means that this is not the only case that the disc swap problem affect someone.

    Versus XIII is not vapor ware and according to Gematsu, Nomura said on Dengeki magazine that: "Now it's FF versus XIII turn".

    Does this indicate what I think it does? Does this game actually have an explorable world map?

    It seems so... and also from the videos I've seen, armies and air units move around on the world map and do battle, which your group can influence....

    Yes, in fact there's a mini-RTS army battle system.

    I too desire the opportunity to hand SE a sum of some reasonable size in exchange for this game so that I may play it.

    SE has already stated that Machina and Rem will occupy very unique roles within the game narrative - my uneducated guess is that they will be used to frame alternate story events.

    This game will end in a cliffhanger?
