Proving that the fantasy is indeed NEVER going to be final, Square Enix has revealed Final Fantasy XIII-2, the latest entry in the long-running RPG franchise that is currently in development for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and scheduled to launch “next winter”.
The game, which is being described as a true sequel that will attempt to exceed its predecessor in every aspect, will feature the return of leading lady Lighting and deliver a brand-new story which stems from the previous title as well as a battle system which has “evolved further since XIII”.
A website for the game has been launched, but in typical Final Fantasy fashion, there’s not a whole lot there now (aside from the above image) to call it anything but a teaser site. Lastly, the question “Why does mankind defy its fate?” was posed to gamers in the press release announcing the title, but considering the proposed launch date, you have plenty of time to ponder the open-ended question’s relevance to the game’s story – or perhaps your own life…(ohhhh….)
Of course, we’ll keep you posted as more details on the numerically-challenged RPG emerge, but in the meantime, feel free to discuss how you feel about the spin-off and what enhancements you’d like to see if in fact you played the first game.
This will be interesting, and maybe a little boring. In the sence that FF always tend to drag on a story with sequels, prequels and tie-in versions. I have not played the first and don’t intend to for another month or so, but i hear positive reviews from its classical FF likeness.
I am hoping a change ot atleast tweak in gameplay will appear in this squel, even more open world concepts would be great.
Well we’ll have to see what the outcome is, atleast we know it’ll be better then FF XIV…
