FFXIII - 2 Reveal Trailer



Posted Image

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Main Website

Update: A couple of details: The game is releasing this year in Japan. Motomu Toriyama is serving as the director.


Square Enix seemed to have a few surprises up their sleeves for their latest conference in Japan. Indeed they did. The company has announced Final Fantasy XIII-2. The game is in the works for both the PS3 and 360. More details soon.

Sweet. Another RPG to get this year, if it makes it to North America that is.

Ugh. I'm one of the few that enjoyed X-2, but since I couldn't stand XIII there's no way I'm touching this with a 10-foot pole.

Great just what we needed, a direct sequel to the worst Final Fantasy game since 8.

I actually enjoyed FFXIII. It definitely wasn't the best and the lack of free roam for the majority of the game kind of sucked. I did enjoy the combat system though. I'll keep an eye on this though. If it's anything like X-2, then I'll probably stay away from it.

They seriously couldn't wait until after Versus XIII came out to start working on this?

Well, now I officially am no longer interested in Final Fantasy. Tales series, you're coming off the bench for favorite current rpg series. Don't let me down!

+1 (though I will say in 8's defense Triple Triad was amazing, Laguna Liore was awesome, the gardens and the world itself was stunning and Aura was broken as holy Fuck.)

I would ask why Lightning is donning ridiculous looking armor while posing like some broadway starlet but I honestly don't care that much. Terrible game was terrible.

 

Stop trying to Scooby-Doo this. We're not going to solve this mystery for you.

Wait?!? Another sequel to a Final Fantasy game!?? Doesn't Square Enix remember that X-2 sucked?


It's true the internet hated X-2 with a passion, but it was actually pretty damn fun IMO and was a big hit for Square.

The internet also hated XII, which was also a really well made game. Call me crazy, but I don't think Square gives a shit about message boards. If XIII was an awful game, then shame on everyone for buying 5-6 million copies of it.

Yeah, people on the internet tend to exaggerate juuuuuust a tad. And they also enjoy assuming that their opinion is equal to fact. XIII was well-reviewed and sold well. Somebody liked it. I know I did, and I am guessing I am not alone. Just because you in particular didn't like it does not mean it's an epic piece of garbage.

I don't know, it seems as though everything was pretty well wrapped up at the end of XIII. At least the ambiguity of what happened to Tidus at the end of X made for something worthy of a sequel.

If this game starts off quickly and doesn't consist of the first 8 chapters feeling like a tutorial, then i'm in.

I agree, but FFX-2 if I remember had a pretty long "tutorial" as well, but then again the game play was very different that FFX

After spending all this money on the engine I am sure Square Enix wants to get 1 more game that will sell millions of copies

Ah jeez. I'm an old school die-hard FF fan, but I didn't finish XIII. Now that I think back, maybe I didn't like it because I expected something different. I said, "nah, those reviewers are wrong. This is Final Fantasy after all." Well, they were right.

But, maybe I can give it a 2nd chance. I want to be excited about XIII-2. I loved X-2 back in 2002. Hopefully this will be good. If nothing else, Lightning's new outfit looks bad ass and here's to hoping we get another outstanding soundtrack!

wow, I just saw Lightning's outfit. Looks like a total slut. I liked her semi-modest clothing in XIII.

The clothing makes me think of the anime "Queen's Blade" (bad memories >.<)

I would be all over a sequel to 8. This? Not so much.

FFXIII was terrible compared to FFX. FFX-2 was terrible compared to FFX. This game has the potential to be the most epically bad RPG in history.

I had an OK time with FFXIII. Wouldn't say it was the worst RPG I played, but it most definitely was not my favorite.

I also feel that the story felt pretty wrapped up at the end, not sure if a sequel is needed.

i've given up on the story in jrpgs, if the game and combat is polished then I'll buy it
