Final Fantasy Union: "This is a question that has been asked by Western gamers for quite a few years now, but we still sit no closer to having an answer than we did when Final Fantasy Agito XIII was first announced during E3 2006. Yes, you heard me, it has been that long since the fated announcement of the Fabula Nova Crystallis franchise.
A lot has happened since then. We have, of course, now seen the release of Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII (under the guise of Final Fantasy Type-0). We have also seen the release of Final Fantasy XIII sequels, in the form of Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, as well as the recent release of Final Fantasy Agito as it was originally intended."
