New Final Fantasy XIII Teaser Website Appears, Bluntly Tells You What's Up

Well, Final Fantasy XIII escalated quickly. Despite the amazing divisive powers of the latest two entries in the Final Fantasy franchise, a new chapter in the "Lightning Saga" promises to continue the story (and certainly convolute it even further).

Earlier today, a teaser website went up announcing that "A Storm Gathers." Okay, it's not so much of a teaser as it is an announcement of an announcement. It bluntly tells you that they've got some stuff brewing and can't wait to boil it over our internets. From the website:

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.

So, yeah, Final Fantasy XIII-3. While it would be the biggest turn around and punch in the throat for this to actually be the announcement that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is finally coming out, that seems about as likely as a current generation FF7 remake. Plus, one of those storm clouds kind of looks like Lightning raising her sword to attack some behemoth cloud creature and that can't be a coincidence.

What do you think? Study those storm clouds and let me know in the comments.

I bought the special edition of FFXIII-2, and enjoyed the first one. People like you who don't enjoy a game and put their views onto people who do, those are the people who can go fuck themselves.

And for god sakes, give it a rest about Versus, they will announce it or say its dead when they feel like it.

In the meantime I suggest you learn to enjoy the plethora of other good games that are out there. But no, fanboys would rather bitch on a website than actually play a good game.

I seem to be in the minority but I throughly enjoyed 13 and its sequel and would actually love a third one. That said if they don't say anything about FFX for the vita or zero at the anniversary event it'd be a bit annoying.
I don't get the eagerness for Versus, at this stage even if they did cancel it all they've really released is a few screenshots so I don't really know enough about it to feel too strongly one way or the other. It'd be cool if Square weren't so tight lipped about development though and y'know actually released the games they announced like in the good old days.

The ending to 13-2 was bad enough, that was a blatant cock tease and bitch slap rolled into one. I sold my copy off the next day and watched Square just pour out weak ass DLC constantly like diarrhea after a cruise ship buffet. They made it sound like the end of all of it would bring the story to a conclusion.

Was it a good game? Decent at best as all the improvements were just fixes to crap they got wrong or left out in the first one. A beta product followed up by a money grab after they watched what Mass Effect and others made. They took it too far though and blatantly bent over the fans expecting they can do it again with 13-3. I'll be buying any games from them going forward as used or as GotY editions on sale. I feel no need to give them $60 for a new game when they're going to try and squeeze another $60 for questionable DLC.

Between Capcom putting content on disc that you can only unlock by paying for and all the other sleazy things game companies are doing to squeeze every last cent they can anymore I'm done. A lot of people are fed up with it and considering the economy the industry is rolling tanks out over thin ice.

This isn't bitching just because we're fanboys as you like to put it. This for being slighted and screwed once again but by a company that was reputable. Key word being WAS.

Agree Plastickman. Im done with SE and the FF series it seems. I keep hoping versus or 15 will be of some relevence to me but with other people making games like Xenoblade and Last Story, I can get my rpg fix elsewhere.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
