Final Fantasy XIII-3?

With Final Fantasy XIII-2 either released or about to be released in a shop near you, the last thing you should be thinking about is whether or not there will be another direct sequel to Final Fantasy XIII.  However, recent revelations do suggest that Square Enix will be turning XIII into a trilogy and or maybe more.

Final Fantasy games, for the most part, each have a standalone story in its own separate universe.  X-2 being the obvious exception to the rule, but now it appears that the end of Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a major, smack in the face, couldn’t miss it from a mile away, hint at a sequel.  Okay so just in case you’re about to run and leave this page to avoid spoilers, I should probably specify now that I will not be revealing what happens in the story so don’t worry this post will not ruin the games plot in any way.

Now on to the juicy stuff, the game ends with the words to be continued and, after much thought, I’ve concluded that that can mean one of two things; another direct sequel to Final Fantasy XIII or the game will be concluded in downloadable content.  It has been confirmed that there is going to be downloadable content for XIII, but I’m not convinced.  In fact, I think selling someone a game and then making them pay more to see how the story ends is just plain wrong.  So I honestly don’t think that this is the way it’s going to go.  Bring on another sequel.

Warning do not watch if you haven’t finished XIII.

    Final fantasy games are amazing. The graphics, the plots and the characters are so cool. It’s great that there is so many. I think they should end the to be continued in another game forget about the downloadable content.

    • Agreeded, there is no way to give a satisfying conclusion with downloadable content. They should definately do another sequel, I really like the characters and story of XIII, so I’m happy it has the chance to be explored in more detail. Thanks for the comment.

    Reviewer can’t even differentiate between ‘in case’ and ‘encase’ – your argument is invalid. I’m looking forward to FF XIII-3 and I hope that you learn you appreciate everything FF that Square gives you in the future; us true fans do.

    • Haha I really like this comment, I’m actually really into grammar and there is such a huge difference between ‘in case’ and ‘encase’, but I’m dyslexic so occasionally things slip through. The one thing I don’t understand about your comment, besides when you used a ‘you’ in place of a ‘to’, is that you seem to thing I don’t want another sequel. I do and you can’t accurately deduce if I am a ‘true fan’ from a gramatical error. Thanks for the comment, it was really amusing and I hope you come back soon to keep me on my toes.
