After the registering of that FinalFantasyXIII-2TheGame domain , we've been on the edges of our seats, awaiting some sort of announcement or clarification.
Well, maybe we'll get the news within the next few days. According to the Unofficial Final Fantasy Site (citing Japanese source FF Reunion), no less than 7 titles will be on tap for today's 1st Production Department Premiere Event…and one of those will be a "new game in the Fabula Nova Crystallis: Final Fantasy XIII series of games." It seems both Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII will be on display, and the third title in the aforementioned series is denoted by a question mark. That could very well be Final Fantasy XIII-2 , if the rumors are true. It may seem fast, given that FFXIII is only about a year old but bear in mind Square-Enix has said they had a lot of ideas left over; perhaps they've used those ideas in a sequel. And while many didn't seem to like FFX-2, it was still a great game in its own right (in my opinion, anyway).
The fans are gonna want S-E to make a few changes to the FFXIII structure and gameplay if FFXIII-2 becomes a reality, though. The number of suggestions made by long-time fans must number in the tens of thousands…hopefully, the developers listened.
