"She must not be forgotten."
So said Square-Enix boss Tetsuya Nomura in reference to Lightning, the pretty, fiercely independent protagonist from Final Fantasy XIII . This from a mysterious e-mail Nomura sent out to Square-Enix Ultimate Members; the simple art work and corresponding message can be found at GamersMint , and it has sparked a whirlwind of discussion. Unsurprisingly, the majority believe Nomura is hinting at a sequel, which wouldn't be entirely unwelcome.
Most remember Final Fantasy X-2 and although it still holds a less-than-stellar reputation, many of the fans – myself included – loved it. So if they want to make Final Fantasy XIII-2 , this particular franchise follower will be intrigued…after all, Square-Enix has received a ton of feedback concerning FFXIII, and they just might make a few changes… We've given up on the possibility of turn-based, but there are many steps the developers could take to provide us with a "truer" FF experience.
As always, I must add that I thoroughly enjoyed FFXIII – despite my disappointment that it wasn't what I expected – and both Lightning and Fang are two of my favorite characters this generation. In fact, Lightning was just starting to get interesting at the end of FFXIII, so I'm all for a return. Gotta love the strawberry blond hair, too.
