Final Fantasy XIII-3 trilogy shock, DLC story fears

We have some information for you which probably won’t be met with a lot of surprise, as reports are suggesting that Square-Enix are instantly going to follow up from the upcoming release of FFXIII-2, with Final Fantasy XIII-3 – yet another sequel and a possible Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.

There is a word of warning for all of you intending to pick up Final Fantasy XIII-2 as the following information we’re about to share with you can probably be deemed as spoilers.

An article published by GameInformer reveals that towards the end of Final Fantasy XIII-2, the game contains multiple endings but there doesn’t appear to be a definitive conclusion to the game, regardless of what ending you choose. According to them, players will be met with a ‘to be continued’ sign at the end of the game, which is obviously a strong indication that Square-Enix are planning another sequel.

Here’s a portion of text from GameInformer’s article: ”After the credits, I sat in disbelief, wondering if I had done something wrong or somehow missed the true ending. I didn’t. Square Enix intentionally left the story incomplete. The announcement of Final Fantasy XIII-3 is inevitable.”

Now there is one particularly interesting outcome that could arise from this new cliffhanger. Last week we told you how Square-Enix were planning to add much more DLC to the game, some of which could even be story-based. Could we see a possibility that the main-storyline of the game is prolonged by purchasing DLC – surely Square-Enix wouldn’t do that to their fans right?

That will be a bold move if that does happen, but we predict that another game is a lot more likely. Will we see a Final Fantasy XIII-3 on current consoles though, or will Square-Enix save it for next generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft? Give us your thoughts on FFXIII-2 being cut short and whether it affects your decision on purchasing the game or not.

FF XIII is different from previous FFs in the way that they don’t spent series of dialogs 3/4 way through the game to explain the whole world history and how it comes to be a chaos, so I can see that players looking for that “Oh I see, that’s why I’m the most important person born in that world in history” thing is going to be disappointed. FF12 and 13-1 are more like anecdotes of history – the players merely change some events in the turn of that world’s history. FF13-1 works like the first half of most Final Fantasy… Read more »
