Famistu.com posted several interviews about FFXIII-2, Final Fantasy Type-0 and the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology following last week's Square Enix 1st Production Department Premiere and the release of the HD trailers. Eager fans translated these quickly, with some interesting results.
We'll give you a short summary of the interviews. For spoilers sake, to limit the size of this article and to credit the people who've translated this, please refer to our source for the full interview.
The Type-0 interview reveals that characters will gain experience and level-up, as well as gain access to a weapon upgrade feature similar to FFXIII. They also reveal that there will be 4 major cities in the world of Orience, called Peristyliums. These citieswill be a hub for everything related to story and sidequests.
The FFXIII-2 interview also contains interesting information, although most of that are major spoilers from the Final Fantasy XIII ending and Episode i short story. The developers aren't too shabby to reply to Famitsu/Dengeki's questions, although they say that the world of FFXIII will be present somehow, and you might want to keep your save data from FFXIII.
This week certainly was a great week for Final Fantasy XIII fans who're begging for "something" for such a long time. With an information blowout, new screenshots and 2 gorgeous trailers, Square Enix has started 2011 with a bang.
