Made with Lightning, real lightning.
Earlier today Square Enix put up a teaser page on their Final Fantasy XIII web site that states they aren’t done with the Fabula Nova Crystallis setting (the world of Final Fantasy XIII and its sequel).
Lightning’s new game will take Lightning’s saga in a “new direction”:
FINAL FANTASY XIII TEAM TO PRESENT NEW DIRECTION FOR THE SAGA OF KEY CHARACTER, LIGHTNING
The “Lightning Saga” that started with the release of FINAL FANTASY XIII, has achieved a cumulative shipment of over 9.6 million units; and in May 2012 FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 was brought to conclusion with the add-on content entitled “Lightning’s Story: Requiem of the Goddess”.
Key members of the FINAL FANTASY XIII development team including the Producer, Director and Art Director, are in preparations to present new information about the direction of Lightning’s story. This presentation will take place at an event in Tokyo to celebrate FINAL FANTASY 25th Anniversary, on 1st September 2012.
You can check out the teaser site, for yourself, here and watch for more info on September 1st, 2012. We’re not sure what they mean by a new direction, but I’m hoping we get some sort of an action combat game. With a better story than both of the previous FFXIII titles, of course.
