Someone on the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII public relations team loves taking photos and they started tweeting pictures like this one of producer Yoshinori Kitase. (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

Title is wrong it should be Kitase already working on FF13-4:Its a Lightning within a Lightning within a Lightning.
Its Lightningception!

Kitase and Toriyama:More rightning!
Adam Jensen:Ï never asked for this.

Lightning can't be in the same place as Lightning since it never strikes the same place twice

i hope SE doesnt make money with this lightning saga shit
Ranma1  +   833d ago
SE doesnt now how to do business.

Probably 5 times more poeople want a Chrono Trigger, Xeno Gear, Kingdom Hearts console game than this.

Yet they make a game that will make them less sales than those games. i dont understand their business plan...i really dont.

Oh wait, Yoichi Wada runs this business...now i udnerstand, everything makes sense now

He's the same guy who moved SE location based on the words of a fortuneteller, no?
Rai  +   833d ago
no it was yoichi wada.

I don't understand, These guys are very talented developers, a lot of these guys worked on my favorite Final Fantasy, FF9, and they just go on making this.

I don't know, but Forcing a third game of an installment that a lot of people didn't like isn't good for the fans. I guess we gotta wait a while longer for Versus 13.

I feel the same way. The company has truly lost its way this gen. For every good (mostly handheld) game they make like Dissidia, they also make like 3x the bad business decisions. For example:

- not releasing FF 1 & 2 Anniversary, Crisis Core and Birth by Sleep on PSN
- making 2 sequels to the arguably most critically panned FF (13)
- not localizing the most well-received FF in recent years (Type 0)
- FF Versus 13

Its obvious from these business decisions and the departure of several key members of their creative team that there are management issues from within the company. I say they should fire Yoichi Wada. Square should return to their ROOTS by making memorable RPGs again; not the browser game/ios/lightning/multiplat strategy they're so into nowadays.

7 years.....that is all
KrisButtar  +   833d ago
i cant wait for 13-3 lightning returns, i didnt like 13 but finished it and 13-2 i thought was good. also square-enix has to be making money on 13 and 13-2 to release another. also i dont think verus will come out until square enix finishes that game engine there are working on, luminous or something, as im sure 13 verus will us that engine

FF13 went from selling 7 millions to only 2 with FF13-2!
wishingW3L  +   833d ago
FFvs was either canned in secret to not upset the fans or it became a next-gen tittle but I'm pretty sure that we will not see this game on the PS3.

They need to stop trying to please "everyone", and get back to their roots. 13-3 seems like a step in the wrong direction. It's more of trying to please "everyone" (single character, action RPG). If the next numbered FF is an action RPG, I'm going to be pissed (vs13 is fine). Action RPGs are what the rest of the world is doing. Do something different. Again, back to your roots. Turn-based.

It's not FFXIII-3, its Lightning
Returns. FFXIII-3 will be announced after that...

...& I would love a new turn based Final Fantasy, but I suppose we will have to settle for FFX HD. I think that's the closest that we are going to get to their "roots" for a long while. God knows when that's releasing, though.

What are you playing at, Square?
kalkano  +   833d ago
I thought this might have to do with what Japan liked.

Have a look at this:

http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... Fantasy&platform=&minS ales=0&publisher=&genre =&sort=JP

13 sold less in Japan than 10-2! They need to get back to the titles at the top!

I'm still waiting for another console version of Parasite Eve. No. 3rd Birthday doesn't count.
Pozzle  +   833d ago
A proper sequel to Parasite Eve 2 would be AMAZING. With survival horror elements, and mitochondria, and monster enemies, and the whole sha-bang! None of the time-travel bullshit that was in Third Birthday.
