Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII hasn’t even been released yet, and Square Enix is talking a trilogy pack.
In an upcoming interview with VG247, Final Fantasy XIII Director Motomu Toriyama explained that a trilogy pack of Square Enix’s massive budget RPGs could be released if (and only if) fans demand it.
“We are currently devoting all of our efforts to Lightning Returns. Although we would certainly like to give it some consideration – if there were a big enough demand from the fans.”
While it’s nice to see them putting more precedence on a game that’s actually in the works, I’m not quite certain yet if we should tell Toriyama that more fans are demanding that Square Enix just move beyond Final Fantasy XIII at this point. Seriously, the games are cheap enough to buy individually now if you want them. Put the remaining talented developers to work on something else, and just call it a wrap already.
Final Fantasy XV can’t come soon enough, if it even happens at all at this point. Or if it even matters.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is the final part of the decade of Final Fantasy XIII initially promised to us. It will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 worldwide later this year.
