Final Fantasy Versus XIII Clothing by ROEN

Final Fantasy Versus XIII Clothing is a bit of old news but worthy of new discussion, because, well why not? Square isn’t releasing any new info on Versus for awhile so why don’t we recap some of what they have revealed?

Do you remember when Square suddenly had a news snippet about the character outfits being changed in Final Fantasy Versus XIII? The new designs were being handled by Japanese label ROEN. Square decided to collaborate with ROEN to design a more realistic style of clothing worn by the characters in the game. It was also announced that you would be able to purchase some of the designs for yourself. On ROEN’s official website they used to have listed a leather jacket worn by Noctis which costed a hefty 346,500 yen ($3,223 USD)! Would there even be a market for Cosplay at this level??

These concepts date all the way back to their autumn/winter 2008-09 collection, and was known as “Play Boy” — “The theme of this imaginative story is set with men, who have shed-off their hippy image and are invited to a high society party … ROEN is reborn to a mature, gorgeous and classy style.”

It is also worth noting that the trailer of Versus XIII shown that day specifically noted “PlayStation 3 only Worldwide” at the end. Is this even a safe assumption or statement anymore? Don’t forget, Final Fantasy XIII had similar verbiage in its trailers as well…

    I love how the conclusion of this article is trying to spark a console war. xD Just remember, Testuya Nomura =/= Motomu Toriyama (aka Horrible Game Developer)

      I was not trying to spark any kind of “flame war”. I was simply stating that the trailer shown at this event showcasing these clothing designs clearly stated “PlayStation 3 only Worldwide”.

        >Implying that you’re referring to when FFXIII went Multiplatform
        >Implying that you’re Implying Versus will follow the same route
        >Implying that you’re implying Versus to go on Xbox 360 as well
        >Implying that you’re sparking flame bait for Versus going on Xbox
        >Implying that you’re starting a console war

        Oh hey, I didn’t want to make it too obvious. Oh its also worth nothing that this whole article was about Roen’s clothing matters and their association with Versus XIII. The very last paragraph is completely irrelevant to the Topic at hand.

  • What does the last paragraph have to do with clothing? Why is it “worth noting” when the topic and content are clearly about the style of clothing? Is this some attempt to start some kind of war?

    I agree with OmecronBlazor and Ven, I think the last paragraph is completely irrelevant.
