PSLS writes: "After five years of consumers waiting patiently, Square Enix released Final Fantasy XIII in late 2009. Its timing couldn’t have been more appropriate: current generation consoles were struggling with an RPG drought as developers turned to handhelds for less risk and a large mobile market in Japan. But if any series could bring the classic feeling of adventuring through a beautiful world with a vast array of interesting characters, it would have to be none other than the legendary Final Fantasy. Unfortunately, Final Fantasy XIII‘s release didn’t satisfy many people, and Japanese forums were flooded with disappointment within days of its release. Even with this negative reception, Square Enix has announced a sequel named Final Fantasy XIII-2, and as many are, we’re extremely confounded."
