    Final Fantasy XIII-3 Hints Discussed by Square Enix game team

    The Final Fantasy XIII-2 endings conclude with the message: “To Be Continued…” Immediately most fans who finished the game explained this as Square Enix hinting at Final Fantasy XIII-3!

    The game’s director, Motomu Toriyama, was interviewed at the Taipei Game Show 2012 event in China and answered a press question whether or not Final Fantasy XIII-2’s ending leads into a sequel, tentatively called Final Fantasy XIII-3.

  • Obvious spoiler alert ahead!

    To quote Mr. Toriyama’s answer: “There are a number of reasons the team displayed the message at the end of the game.
    Reason 1. One is that the game has a number of Paradox Endings hidden away, and the team want players to first look for all these endings.
    Reason 2. Another reason is that Final Fantasy XIII-2’s world will be extended through downloadable content, meaning players can expect a long play experience. The team plan on continually releasing download content.

    For Final Fantasy XIII-2, downloadable content is continuing to be developed, so until the downloadable content ends I hope to continue working on the game. Note that Lightning and Amodar are being added to the game’s Coliseum Battle mode in upcoming DLC. Separate from this, we’re also preparing a large Lightning Episode.

    In the past the game’s producer Yoshinori Kitase made a similar statement in the Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ultimania guide, where he hinted that the game would also see Episodes for Snow and Sazh. However, he wasn’t specific if those Episodes would be download content, and even mentions it’s possible they’ll be released as novels and other media…

    Or, you know, if their ideas are big enough maybe we’ll see another XIII sequel outside of Versus!

    Here’s the “To Be Continued” sequence video:

    Update July 6th: The July 2012 issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has an interview with Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 director Motomu Toriyama, in which he hints at Final Fantasy XIII-3. To quote him: “The [FF XIII-2] Lightning download content had an ending that left a feeling of mystery and hope. The day when the meaning of this will come to light is not too far off.”

    What would you like to see, XIII-2 DLC Episodes or a full-on XIII-3?

      Never really played any Final Fantasy games, then a few months back borrowed XXIII, loved it, it was amazing. Then bought XIII-2, amazing again, the ending seemed to be the usual every thing goes well ending then BLAM.

      I really hope for a XIII-3, an amazing story so far, so why end it?

    • Chaser911

      Dlc’s are good and all. But I prefer FFXIII-3, the story must go on no matter what. The 13th episode is a masterpiece!

      Basically looking at how some of the DLC has gone as well, it’s obvious that there’s “something” going to be done with XIII-2 with the possibility of XIII-3.

      I haven;t put in the money to buy ALL of the XIII-2 DLC, partly because I just don’t want to, but I did get the Requiem of the Goddess DLC for Lightning and the way it ended screams a continuation. If SE doesn’t do such a thing after the events of Lightning’s DLC, then they will have officially butchered the ending to the FF-XIII series of games.

      From what I’ve heard as well and am interested in doscovering, is that Snow’s Perpetual Battlefield DLC also aids in suggesting a XIII-3, and I really hope that’s true.

      Overall, lots of hints towards XIII-3 unless SE wants to have a LOT of unsatisfied fans who are left with an apocalyptic ending where we have no idea what happens to everyone that’s still around.

      ALL THAT I CARES IS THEY MADE IT IN THE SAME PLATFORM. IN EITHER PS3 or XBOX 360. don’t release it in PS4 or other platform and i would be grateful.

      THE FINAL FANTASY XIII-3 SHOULD BE CONTINUED! I have played a lot of FF games and in my opinion this version is the best! It’s a beautiful story, the graphics are so amazing, the characters are so creative and the dlc really rocks! Please make a new final Fantasy XIII-3!

      I’m a big fan of the final fantasy franchise but I personally think FF13 and 13-2 can’t hold a candle to some of the older games. I don’t really like the futuristic techno style of these new installments. I’ve played FF7, 8, 10, 12, 13 and 13-2 and I wish the developers wouldn’t bother with another installment of FF13. I mean FF13-2 was a huge improvement to 13 and I would probably buy it or rent it to find out what happens but I’d rather have a short DLC that finishes it for little money than a whole other game that’ll cost me $60.
      They should get back to basics and create a completely new FF Adventure that reminds us of the goodness of the older FF games.

      Better yet, finally work on some of those remakes fans have been crying for for years.

      one thing i have to say is according to the ff wiki the domain for xiii-3 was registere in september of 2011. but no true hints at it in dev yet. id love to see the series continued past a trilogy. hell even a movie would be nice if it isnt a nother game. im ready for a sequal and a movie is SE would do it. they would pull it off like always.

      I too would like to see a part 3 of this series I loved part’s 1 and 2 and i pretty much raged lot’s when i saw the to be continued message at the end of the game >_<!!! I wouldn't like a DLC with the ending couse yea that would just be pretty cheap in my opinion. I already bought and played all DLC content available so i can't wait for a part 3 of this awesome series!
