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.

This will instead be Final Fantasy Type-0, which I am curious about, but also inclined to believe will be a DS title.

If I am wrong, and it is XIII-2, the internet will explode in a sh*tstorm. But SE is good at that; let us hope it is not all sound and fury this time.

The Type-0 is supposedly the old bahamut zero logo for the jap version, my bet's on the remake or some FF-VII related title

FFVII wouldn't be in the Fabula Nova Crystallis series, that's the best evidence it could be XIII-2.

To be honest, I want S-E to announce any new entries to the Fabula Nova Crystallis project until E3 at the earliest, cuz the other 2 games have not even been out yet….

Just stop announcing more games than you can develop and release (not to mention critically) please…..

All this talk about a new title…and still not enough info on Versus XIII or KH3… What the hell, Square? And where's Valkyrie Profile 3?

I didn't hate FFXIII. Turns out it's a ton of fun. Problem was, it feels like two games. The story mode which was rather thin unless you read the whole datalog and even THEN it's kinda weird.

Bu then you have the second part of the game that barely feels even related to what you were doing in the story but is full of high adventure and great battles.

I'm at 92% of the missions and I can't help but wonder why on earth SE didn't just incorporate this awesome gameplay into the story. Why leave it for the end where those who are dumbfounded by the story will never see it?

A FFXIII-2 has the potential to be great. There's no doubt in my mind. I think SE just got bogged down trying to figure out what gamers want this gen instead of just putting out their normally blockbuster rpgs.

SE makes games only if they are going to be on the 360. Anything else is bug ridden crap or lacks a release date, or both.

Hello everyone, I've been visiting this site for a few months so I decided to sign up. Personally I won't be getting another FF game unless they make some major changes.

Lawless SXE

FFXIII-2, or Haerhesis (I swear I spelt that wrong…)

So, with seven titles purported to be there, what will they be?

Three from FNC:FFXIII:
Versus, Agito and one of those I've written above.

Four others:
KH3DS, Dissidia 012… What else are possibilites? KH3, FFXIV-PS3, FFXV, Dungeon Seige, Parasite Eve 4, New IPs? Too many options for me to thin them out.
Peace.

It's confirmed. Square Enix just announced Final Fantasy XIII-2… for the PS3 and 360. And yeah, it's by the same time that made XIII. Not really too keen on this one.

I'm looking forward for more info about Versus XIII but there's nothing new announced about the said game. Oh well.

Wow… You're on the ball. But is the conference not still in progress? We may yet see more on Versus.

Also, Agito has been renamed to Type-0. I wonder why…

Also, FFXIII-2 is set to launch this year? S-E, releasing a game in the same year as the announcement? How much did they cut from XIII to be able to push it that quickly?!

Yeah, my mistake on that. They just showed a new trailer for Versus XIII… and it is still exclusive to the PS3! Looks like Nomura is having his way, at least on this game. But then again, E3 might change things. This is a conference in Japan, after all.

I was also rather surprised that FF XIII-2 is coming out this year. I get a feeling that they're just putting on here some of the stuff that did not make it to final version of FF XIII.

They renamed Agito to Type-0 as they said it doesn't even feel like the other games in the Fabula Nova Crystallis umbrella. Interesting that it's coming out in 2 UMDs. Must be a massive game!

Sweet! And considering that this is yet another trailer, quite late in the development process, it may yet remain exclusive. I don't think that they'd have the nuts to pull a swerve like that.

2 UMDs is cool, and at least we know that Type-0 should be something distinctly different.

It's all up to you now. I need to go to sleep, but I reckon I'll be overjoyed when I wake up in the morning to find a plethora of S-E news, which hopefully makes it seem as though they're back on track.
Peace and g'night.

Do we really know where S-E is at when it comes to developing Versus XIII? It's been way too long already! Anyway, I sure hope that it'll remain exclusive to the PS3.

I am actually more excited with Type-0 (aka Agito) with the announcement that it'll ship with 2 UMDs. Not to mention the fact that they also reserved Type-1, Type-2, and Type-3. This one's quite weird, but admittedly rather interesting.

And I was right Fabula Nova Crystalis did it again, a piece of crap FF gonna be released and worse…a damn sequel!, meh I would even be against a FFVII sequel, so a XIII sequel just made me sad.

It seems FFXIII – Agito is now called FFXIII- Type-0, well i guess i prefer it to the previous title though it does sound quite side storyish.

I'm hoping to hear much more on these titles in the next few days, i'm now actually tempted to play through FFXIII again for the first time since completing it.

http://www.joystiq.com/2011/01/18/final-fantasy-xiii-2-announced/

Also with FFXIII-2 i see there is an image with lighting all dressed up, I hope this game does not turn as immature and girlish like X-2. The logo has lighting and something of an alter ego, what this means, one does not know.

XIII-2 Announced. For a second I fooled myself into thinking it was PS3 Exclusive. I got a text from the Playstation Blog via Twitter! Imagine if it were. It would renew what little faith I have in Square-Enix. But alas… This does not seem to be the case.

Well come on now, they can't just release XIII on 360 and then keep the sequel exclusive to PS3, that would just suck.

Versus looks pretty diverse, its like FF and Kingdom Hearts had a baby, You seem to control the lead like on KH, so you can used the d-pad to move the character and menus to order attacks. One character seems to use a gun, which can be controlled like a thrid person shooter and you can enter battler tanks in battle, its looking pretty slick, i hope it's released this year, we really need an RPG!

FFXIII-2 is rumoured for Winter 2012…

Has there been any clue on how XIII Versus and XIII actually relate to each other yet?

I'm thinking, (wild theory) That teh story of XIII is sort of a fable to tthe world of Versus XIII and maybe some of the characters of XIII are decendants to some of the lead characters of Versus XIII. If there is no relation what so ever i'm going to be quite annoyed. Versus should be called FFXV.

Well the 6 min trailer looked like it was controled like Kingdom Hearts more, there characters in Versus cant hover, which is a good thing if you ask me, thast the one thing that puts me off Dissidia.

I have posted the confference traielrs on this article, as they're links they have to be approved, but if you search youtube you should find them 🙂

Versus seems to be a bonafide action RPG, the only relation to XIII they have mentioned is it takes place "in the same universe" so maybe its the same planet, but definitely at different time periods.
