The FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 Fan Meeting took place earlier today, and with it comes a small bit of new information. Speaking in a roundtable discussion, the development staff shared some interesting details with the fans. FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 has been in development for around 1 and 1/2 years.
Decisions to go ahead with the sequel were made not long after the North American and European releases of FINAL FANTASY XIII. As for a release date, that information should hopefully be shared at TGS, along with the possibility of a Limited Edition version.
