Final Fantasy XIII Gets A Sequel

Final Fantasy XIII Gets A Sequel
 
 

Don't confuse it with Final Fantasy XIV or Final Fantasy Versus XIII, or even Final Fantasy Agito XIII, but Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be a completely true sequel to the 13th in Final Fantasy's numbered game series.

That will put it about three years from the launch of the original Final Fantasy XIII, which Square had at the time said might be its last "traditional" RPG.

And just because this is a sequel doesn't mean that statement won't still stand. In an official PlayStation Blog post, Square Enix says it has "evolved" its battle system from Final Fantasy XIII but doesn't say too much more about the gameplay mechanics.

The sequel is not to be confused with Final Fantasy XIV, which is due out later this year for the PS3 and is already released on the PC. That is an massively online multiplayer RPG that has very little to do with Final Fantasy XIII.

Square Enix did something similar with Final Fantasy X. The game was so popular that it created a sequel and titled it Final Fantasy X-2. The Final Fantasy "numbered" series are not connected to each other in any way, other than the fact that they share the same terminology and the occasional dialogue reference. However, each number in the Final Fantasy legacy stands as its own game. They are not really sequels of one another.

This news comes as players are still waiting to hear news of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which was announced alongside Final Fantasy XIII but remains shrouded in mystery as the game has still not been released and only a scant few details have been revealed.

So, in other words, Square Enix is just one confusing little publisher. But know this - if you liked Final Fantasy XIII, a sequel is on the way. That is all.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
