Square Enix has today announced Final Fantasy XIII-2 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 which will act as a sequel to Final Fantasy XIII, which was released in North America in March 2010 and has shipped 6 million units worldwide. The game will include a brand-new story which stems from the previous title as well as a battle system which has evolved further since “XIII” so J-RPG can rest easy that one of the most famous franchises in gaming history is getting another instalment.
The game was rumored to be in development ever since a web address bearing the game’s name was registered but until now Square Enix had stayed quiet but they have finally confirmed what we all expected and with production on Final Fantasy XIII-2 underway, Square Enix say the game will build upon the best aspects of Final Fantasy XIII.
Ever since the release of Final Fantasy in 1987, this RPG series has been noted for its spectacular visuals, highly imaginative worlds and rich stories which have lead to praise from the industry and earning the highest accolades from users around the world. The series have so far achieved a cumulative shipment of over 97 million units worldwide (as of September 2010).
