Square Enix has just announced the release of a sequel for Final Fantasy XIII, the latest multimillion seller title from the Final Fantasy franchise.
Production for FFXIII-2 is underway, with promises of a new story and an evolved combat system that will set this Final Fantasy apart from their previous high quality titles. While this is good news for Final Fantasy fans everywhere it isn’t really that surprising. Square Enix has been making their trademark franchise since the first title in series back in 1987.
Since 1987 Square Enix has sold 97 million units world wide of its famous Final Fantasy RPG series and shows no signs of stopping, and why should it? Some of the greatest RPGs ever made have come from the Final Fantasy series, and even games that didn’t follow the traditional RPG mold, such as the tactics series were an astounding success among fans. I would have been surprised had Square Enix not followed up with a sequel.
While FFXIII may not have been the greatest Final Fantasy game to date, it still had a solid RPG experience that fans love and keep coming back enjoy. Now with the announcement of a sequel we can hope that Square Enix will succeed in their promises to deliver an even greater RPG experience with FFXIII-2.
Fans can expect the release of FFXIII-2 for PlayStation 3 and the Xbox360 come next winter.
In the meantime feel free to watch the teaser trailer over and over while you wet your appetites further.
United We Game.
