Well apparently Square Enix was pretty satisfied with Final Fantasy XIII-2's sales considering they said they'd be announcing the next entry in the "Lightning Saga" in early September. Well now we have a few more details regarding this mystery project, courtesy of Famitsu. Producer Yoshinori Kitase revealed that development on the next FFXIII game had just started and that we'll be getting an official name reveal on September 1.
I didn't think that Final Fantasy XIII-2 had performed well enough to merit another sequel, but clearly I was wrong. I personally enjoyed the sequel much more than the original game so I'm not entirely against the idea of part 3. I'm of the opinion however that SE's resources could be better spent elsewhere.
But hey, what do I know?
