News Final Fantasy XIII-3 Revealed at PAX Prime

Written by Twisted Ideas

This past week at PAX Prime, the third installment of the Final Fantasy XIII series has been announced. Titled Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII-3 will take place hundreds of years after the end of FF XIII-2 which was hinted at the end of Lightning’s “Requiem of the Goddess” DLC released earlier this year. Lightning will be the sole playable character in the game. The battle system will be revised and become real-time where you can freely control Lightning in battle. The story will take to a new locals in the world of Novus Partus which is threatened by an incoming doomsday taking place in thirteen days. There will be a persistent countdown that will be affected by actions you take in the game.

Love it or hate it XIII-3 is deviating even more from what people want from a Final Fantasy game. Me however have always enjoyed the XIII series despite the flaws. There are worse JRPG’s out there and worse games that you may have or could have played than FFXIII. I do not know if Square-Enix had planned that the series to go this direction from the start but Lightning’s story will be coming to an end. Expect to see Final Fantasy XIII-3 some time in 2013
