There will be a sequel to Final Fantasy XIII. This isn’t the surprise it could have been because the clever internet noticed Square Enix’s domain name registration company buyng a Final Fantasy XIII-2 domain. The official Final Fantasy XIII-2 site is a microsite on Square-Enix right now though. Oh. And it’s in Japanese.
At the Square Enix event, held yesterday in Japan, they confirmed the game. It’ll be directed by Motomu Toriyama, who also directed the original Final Fantasy XIII.
“Final Fantasy XIII-2 is currently in production with an aim for producing high quality game content which exceeds Final Fantasy XIII in every aspect; namely, a brand-new story which stems from the previous title as well as a battle system which has evolved further since XIII – and more, we will be disclosing further details about the new game in the future.”
The question is – how does this news greet you? Final Fantasy XIII had mixed reviews at best. My own copy stopped spinning in the PlayStation 3 when I got fed up of wandering the plains in order to farm enough XP and loot to beat Attacus.
We won’t have to wait years to find out. It’s due out in Japan by the end of the year and there’s a trailer expected by the end of this month.
