UPDATE: As suspected, the video is indeed a fake. Although most people probably figured that out already.

In case you missed the RUMOR in front of the title, this article is a rumor. It should not be taken as fact because why? That’s right, because it’s a rumor. Videos like this appear all the time on Youtube and end up being fake. Still, it’s pre-E3 and it’s fun to speculate.

There is a video floating around Youtube that  claims to be a pre-E3 FFXV reveal. At the end of the video, the Wii U logo appears on the screen indicating the game is coming  to the Wii U. If  this turns out to be true, it would be huge news. It’s been a while since a numbered Final Fantasy appeared on a Nintendo Console. But again, it’s just a rumor. Watch the video below:

  • Perhaps instead of wondering if this is fake or not, we should discuss what people are thinking:  Final Fantasy on WiiU.  There is a high chance, in my opinion, as the series has appeared on Xbox 360.  It would only make sense, and I think that many people want to see Versus XIII/XV on WiiU.

      I would rather have a fresh FFXV and not one based on old ideas, if that makes sense.

  • That was a snippet from a Versus XIII video if I’m not mistaken

    • yes the character looks exactly the same, unless they are reciclyng stuff XD

    This looks like the exact same setup (including the camera angle that’s meant to make 2-3 people look like a crowd) that those guys used to debut that fake project cafe video. In fact, it looks like the same room. Lol.

    • Yeah, it almost looks like they taped that in a classroom.  It was done pretty well, to make you think for a second that it is real.  

      However, I think it brings up something that is on a lot of peoples’ minds:  the possibility that Final Fantasy will return to a Nintendo console (the main title, not small spinoffs)

    •  I’m at work and can’t watch the video, but I’ve been wondering to myself for awhile if they would rename XIII Versus into XV. There’s already a precedent for it with Type-0, and if they feel that they’ve put enough resources into it that for it to be a standalone roman numeral, Why not? Not to mention XIII already got the XIII-2 sequel which probably hadn’t even been thought about when the Fabula Crystallariuamus Novellummamas press conference took place.

    • Oh please let it be true, please please let it be true!
