Looking back on 10 years of Final Fantasy XIII with Yoshinori Kitase [RPG Site]

Over seven years after her E3 2006 debut and nearly a decade since development began on Final Fantasy XIII, Producer Yoshinori Kitase is preparing to say goodbye to Lightning. After a stint out of the spotlight in the time-bending Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning and the world she inhabits are set to reunite for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, their curtain call.

Love it or hate it and love her or hate her, FF13 and the adventures of Lightning won't leave you indifferent. RPG Site caught up with Kitase, one of the key figures in the development of the entire FF13 series, to chat about successes, failures, lessons learned and letting go. (Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

Nice Interview. I Hope Kitase's next project is working with Hiroyuki Ito on FF XVI :D.

And its still only just "one" FF game...And theY have absolutely no shame about that.

Goodbye and good riddance Lightning. You would have been missed - IF YOU HAD LEFT SOONER!

I get depressed just thinking about all the potential new numbered FF games there could have been, if not for Squenix milking FF-13 :/
