Final Fantasy XIII sequel officially announced
Final Fantasy XIII was in development for years but you wonâ€™t have to wait that long for its sequel, which is imaginatively named Final Fantasy XIII-2. The direct sequel to Square Enixâ€™s 2010 release will be out this year.
Motomu Toriyama, who directed FFXIII, will be directing XIII-2 as well. A premier trailer for the game was shown to a closed group of people at a press conference held by Square Enix. That trailer will be available for all to see on 20 January via the gameâ€™s official website, which will presumably go live on that date as well.
According to CVG, the trailer shows Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII fighting a new character with purple hair. Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.
