Yoshinori Kitase Talks Final Fantasy X-3 With A Look At Tidus & Yuna’s “Later Years” Illustration


Square Enix held a special Dissidia Final Fantasy NT community broadcast today where fans got to check out the “Later Years of Tidus & Yuna” illustration by Tetsuya Nomura and some Final Fantasy X-3 talk with the devs. [Thanks, Gamestalk.]


During the program, voice actress Marika Kouno, who is a big fan of Final Fantasy X, asked if there’s been any consideration other than X-2 for a spinoff, sequel, or even a DLC of some sort relating to Final Fantasy X.


Yoshinori Kitase: “Currently, Final Fantasy X’s latest story is recorded in the voice drama for the HD Remaster, but back when we decided to include the voice drama the staff was really excited about the thoughts of ‘Don’t you want to make Final Fantasy X-3?’ However, most of them have been busy and so we haven’t been able to make it happen.”


Tetsuya Nomura made the illustration for the voice drama, and it was included in the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Exhibition which was held in Tokyo earlier this year.


Takeo Kujiraoka, Dissidia Final Fantasy Director: “There’s been some requests to make this (Later Years of Tidus & Yuna) into costumes, and when I asked Nomura-san he said ‘First make Final Fantasy X-3 then,’ to which I responded ‘Right!’”


Yoshinori Kitase: “For now, I hope fans can look at this illustration and just wonder ‘I wonder what would happen in Final Fantasy X-3?’”
