Announcement on forthcoming release of FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 A sequel to “FINAL FANTASY XIII”
London (18 January 2011) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces a new release for next winter, FINAL FANTASY® XIII-2 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. A sequel to “FINAL FANTASY XIII” originally released in Europe in March 2010 that has since shipped a cumulative total of 6 million units worldwide.
“FINAL FANTASY XIII-2” is currently in production with an aim for producing high quality game contents which exceed “FINAL FANTASY XIII” in every aspect; namely, a brand-new story which stems from the previous title as well as a battle system which has evolved further since “XIII” – and more. We will be disclosing further details about the new game in the future.
From the release of the first FINAL FANTASY in 1987, this unique RPG series has continued to offer the industry’s most advanced graphics, highly imaginative worlds and rich stories as it gains the highest accolades from users around the world. Titles in the series have so far achieved a cumulative shipment of over 97 million units worldwide (* as of September 2010).
@Tinks: they started screwing over some of their long time 2nd party partners like Argonaut and (to a degree) Rare. (3 Hours ago)
during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (7 Hours ago)
if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (7 Hours ago)
I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (8 Hours ago)
Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (8 Hours ago)
@droezelke: The complaints he has in that video are mostly valid I'd say, sadly. (8 Hours ago)
