Final Fantasy XIII-2 Incoming!

I’m not sure how I missed this one? I mean, I genuinely love RPG’s and when it comes to Final Fantasy, I know most of them like the back of my hand. However, today I was extremely surprised to learn that rumours of a Final Fantasy XIII sequel, have in fact turned out to be entirely true and I literally did NOT see this coming.

Sadly, I thought Final Fantasy XIII was the poorest offering the franchise has ever churned out, almost. (After all, I do recall an abomination called Final Fantasy X-2!) It is a beautiful game though, and the story is emotional and well developed, but the linearity throughout really agitated me, and having to constantly bomb down Adamantoises for cash and upgrades was beyond tedious. Admittedly, the game did open up during the last chapter or so, and you could partake in some quirky monster hunting, but for me that just wasn’t enough and I found it to be more frustrating than entertaining. Nevertheless, despite my slight disappointment regarding the game in general, I am quite excited about it having a sequel, because this is where it can make up for it’s mistakes and be a little less stingy. When thinking about it logically, there’s not actually a lot to improve on, and all it really needs to do is add in a few mini games and offer a bit more in the way of variety, exploration and reward, and we’ve got a winner!

Now, details at this point are scarce and the only image available is of Lightening, but there is the obligatory vague website up and running here, so go ahead and take a look, but while you’re there, please pray to Ifrit that it doesn’t involve over sugary costume changes that determine your characters abilities, and if we can avoid the whole “Oh look, the protagonist became a Pop Star after saving the World!” nonsense, then that would be just swell…
