Final Fantasy XIII was in development for years but you won’t have to wait that long for its sequel, which is imaginatively named Final Fantasy XIII-2. The direct sequel to Square Enix’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 game’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.
