On September 1, Square Enix will host its “Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga: New Developments Presentation” at the Final Fantasy 25th anniversary event in Shibuya, where it will detail the next expansion of the Final Fantasy XIII project.
In Famitsu this week, Final Fantasy XIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase told the magazine that “the [new] project just started running.”
Separate from the Final Fantasy XIII project, Square Enix’s Ryutaro Ichimura said he is developing a new “hardware-less” action RPG. According to Ichimura, “you’ll be able to access it anywhere, play under any circumstance, play where you like, and on the hardware you prefer.” And “you can continue playing on the hardware you have at home on a big, clear screen.”
By the sounds of it, it’s possible this could be that PlayStation 3 and PS Vita action RPG Square’s 1st Production Department was said to be developing in December last year. But then that’d cancel out the whole “on the hardware you prefer” tidbit.
Looks like we’ll have to wait and see.
