The Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ultimania Omega book released in Japan today, and contains a new interview with producer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama, where the pair seem to hint at a new project – perhaps Final Fantasy XIII-3.
Find the blurb below. (Warning: potential spoilers.)
Kitase: (The last part about Lightning’s DLC Episode) Explaining “XXX Years Later” would be pointless. It might seem that the line “To Be Continued…” means that Lightning’s chapter will continue in more download content, but we are doing it in a different interpretation.
Toriyama: With Lightning remaining in the 〇〇〇〇ル (crystal?) but still keeping her heart, you could say that the world of Final Fantasy XIII will be permanently 〇〇ed. I’m praying for the day to come that Lightning will surely 〇〇めて (wake up?) and Serah will be rewarded. Like Lightning advancing one step forward in the secret event, I think we want to take a step forward to advance our own project. From now on, I’d be happy if you could anticipate it.
