Recommended Videos

 

Final Fantasy XIII-2 was just announced by Square Enix at their 1st Production Department conference at Roppongi Hills, Japan. Japanese gamers will get to play the sequel to Final Fantasy XIII sometime this year.

 

Meanwhile, Square Enix Europe and USA shot out a press release of their own, mentioning that Westerners get Final Fantasy XIII “next winter,” which sounds like it could be a year from now. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is slated for release this year in Japan.

 

They also say that the game will “exceed” Final Fantasy XIII in every way and feature an “evolved” battle system, but don’t go into specifics.

 

Motomu Toriyama, the director of both Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2, stated that the game will feature a dramatic story involving lead character Lightning’s rival. The game’s tagline is why “does mankind defy its fate?”
