Want More FFXIII? How About FFXIII-2?
Square Enix might be planning a new Final Fantasy XIII sequel, Final Fantasy XIII-2, if its latest domain acquisition is to be believed.
The just acquired domain is finalfantasy13-2game.com. There's nothing inside at present, of course.
The domain was not registered by Square Enix, but by a company which has registered domains on their behalf in the past, covering titles such as Front Mission Evolved, Nier and Gun Loco, all major recent or upcoming Square Enix releases.
With these proof, it is hard to believe that the domain was not registered by Square Enix, it could be fan made. But the question now is if the registration is just Square Enix merely domain-name squatting or if they're really up to something, like a real sequel of the game. It's not that surprising, they've made Final Fantasy X-2 before, didn't they?
If they do released the game, many will be interested to see whether the game will follow the cursed linear FFXIII which made the original such a hit, or FFX-2 mission style. Serah could be a Pop-star. And Lightning will be a delivery woman.
We also must not forget the original game side story, FF Agito XIII and FF Versus XIII.
