Square Enix's Hidemi Matsuzuka, who manages the company's figure brand, tweeted out the picture below, writing only, "Prince" ("ouji" or 王子) in Japanese. In the photo, you can see the words, "Noctis Eau de Toilette." It appears that Square Enix is making a lightly scented perfume inspired by Versus' protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum.

Wonder what he smells like...

Square-Enix has had problems in the current gen, I suspect that the company couldn’t adapt Final Fantasy and other IPs to the HD era. Moreover, the first version of FF14 was a downfall, this game forced to stop the development of other games to focus in the rebuild of FF14. Really it’s like a new game.

Square-Enix announced Final Fantasy Versus XIII years ago and the game was lost in the limbo. Square decided to halt Versus PS3 development two years ago, but the RPG wasn’t cancelled, why? Two years ago, Square-Enix moved the game to PS4 and Sony got in the project.

Actually Sony is co-developing the game with Square-Enix, therefore, this game will be exclusive on PS4.

Square-Enix renamed Versus to FF15 in the middle of this process. Sony’s studios are helping SE with FF15 assets among other tasks.

We hinted this PS4 exclusive one month ago, but we couldn’t speak freely about this topic. Now, it’s all that we can say.

New Final Fantasy Versus XIII information is on the way, with the date for the next reveal already set according to the game's director Tetsuya Nomura.

Speaking on the inaugural episode of  Square Enix Merchandise Radio (via NovaCrystallis), he revealed that details were coming but that the project was a sensitive subject within Square Enix.

Earlier this year, Square Enix's figurine brand manager tweeted a photo of a perfume based on Final Fantasy Versus XIII's protagonist.

Nomura added, "Even within the company, news about Versus is a sensitive issue. Very sensitive."

"We've been silent for the past year," Nomura continued in the radio interview, "but we've already picked a day to announce specific info. Bit by bit, we are in the process of getting ready for that."

"Last year we didn't announce anything about the game," reiterated Nomura. "To be honest, I talked about releasing new info, but wasn't able to, and I'd like to apologize for that."

In spring 2012, Nomura seemed ready to talk about the game, saying they had finished preparing the latest Versus info. Oddly, he then added, "Because of a totally unrelated reason, there are circumstances in which that info cannot be released."

Also in the recent radio interview, Nomura said, "When we make the announcement, at that time we'll also reveal the reason for that delay."

"I'm sorry there are things I can't yet talk about, but please wait a little longer."
