FFXIII-2 announced in Tokyo, to hit EU and US “next winter”

Tuesday, 18 January 2011 12:35 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Square Enix Europe has just announced Final Fantasy XIII-2 will arrive “next winter” in the region following its announce this morning at the publisher’s Japanese event.

SCEA has confirmed the same time-frame for an American release on the US PS Blog.

Square’s also released a mock-up of what it expects to be the cover art for the game. Get that at RPG Site.

The game will also feature a ” a battle system which has evolved further since XIII” as well as a new story following on from FFXIII.

Motomu Toriyama, director of FFXIII, will direct the game again. Yoshinori Kitase will most likely take on the producer role once again.

A new character was also shown alongside Lightning, as was a new logo, as seen above.

It’ll be out in 2011 in Japan.

Last week, it was discovered that “” was registered by Square Enix.

But talk of a sequel began back in March 2010, when after FFXIII launched, Kitase and Toriyama admitted they’d be up for developing a sequel.

The trailer for FFXIII-2 will launch on Thursday on the game’s official website here. We did post it below (thanks, DoubleM), but we’ve removed it at Square’s request.

Get full details on everything else shown at the conference here.

    I guess the real question is…. will it be out before Versus? :-D

    #2 4 years ago
  3. 52pickup

    sigh. Same people making it too. I have no hope for this game.

    What’s the chances this game will be made from the “nearly 60 hours worth of content they cut from XIII”?

    #3 4 years ago
  4. StolenGlory

    Heh good point Blerk. Another real question is also whether or not the 360 version will suck the colossal amounts of ass that the original did.

    #4 4 years ago
  5. Johnny Cullen

    The answer is yes! Most likely. It’s out in 2011 in Japan at least.

    #5 4 years ago
  6. StolenGlory

    No more info Johnny?

    #6 4 years ago
  7. Monk

    SO Versus in 2013 :P ?

    #7 4 years ago
  8. Blerk

    Hmm. If it’s out so soon then I’m guessing it’s not a significant revamp, then.

    #8 4 years ago
  9. Johnny Cullen

    I’m typing up the rest of the conference report. I’ll update this when I get the chance.

    Right, I’ve got about a year to complete FFXIII. Fingers crossed!

  14. Suikoden Fan

    Nathan said it best on twitter “FFXIII-2, huh? I’ve heard of trying to squeeze blood from a stone, but it’ll be interesting to see if Square can squeeze it out of shit.”

    #14 4 years ago
  15. Deacon

    I’m now curious as to the specific feedback they may or may not be working to on this.

    Ignore the idiots complaining about it being linear or not liking X character, just write a DECENT, character-driven story, and there may still be hope for XIII.

    #15 4 years ago
  16. Johnny Cullen

    I’m still to finish it, but XIII is a good game. Needless to say, I’m pumped.

    #16 4 years ago
  17. Aimless

    I’m definitely interested in playing this. XIII‘s combat system was sublime and I really enjoyed the monster hunting of Gran Pulse, so if they just stitch together a few areas like that and weave an inoffensive story inbetween I’ll be happy.

    Hopefully the majority of the game won’t be tutorials seeing as it’s a sequel, too.

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Dralen

    I’m definitely going to give it a chance. Let’s just hope they take a lot of feedback from fans and make good use of it.

    #18 4 years ago
  19. SplatteredHouse

    Make Versus (first), then we’ll talk, Square Enix.
    Could anyone please request an update on Versus XIII, today?

    Battle system is the only thing that was worth it.

  21. Erthazus

    ahh just watch this.

    #21 4 years ago
  22. Ge0force

    I loved FF13′s story and characters, but I hated the almost fully automated gameplay. I’m afraid this sequel is just more of the same, since they’ve cut out lotsa content from the original game to fit on 4 DVD’s.

    #22 4 years ago
  23. Deacon

    The story sucked. As did most of the characters/development.

    Maybe it’s just me but have SQenix really not had a good story to tell since FFX?

    #23 4 years ago
  24. Erthazus

    “I loved FF13’s story and characters”

    #25 4 years ago
  26. Johnny Cullen

    @24 Why? Different opinions. Some people love it – like me – some people don’t. Can you respect that?

    #26 4 years ago
  27. Hunam

    I don’t believe for a second that this game is coming out in 2011.

    #27 4 years ago
  28. Gekidami

    You’re asking if Erthazus can respect other peoples opinions? Are you new to this site?

    #28 4 years ago
  29. StolenGlory


    Good call.

    As far as Erth goes, there is only Erth. All other opinions must be assimilated :)

  31. Aimless

    You might say Erth considers himself to be at the centre of the universe. Someone get Copernicus on the phone.

    #31 4 years ago
  32. Erthazus

    I don’t have problem with different opinions. It’s just come on…. the STORY is not that bad, but dialogs are REALLY bad. It’s like actors don’t even try to read a script.

    and too much Acronyms and initialisms like L’Cie, cocoon and etc. that after 10 hours you start to give a big F about.

    #32 4 years ago
  33. StolenGlory

    Johnny what date did they give for the Versus trailer?

    I see that XIII-2 is due on Thursday and Type 0 is due on the 27th…

    #33 4 years ago
  34. Johnny Cullen

    Versus XIII will drop on January 27 as will Agito XIII and everything else from the event. XIII-2 is the exception to the rule.

    By the by… I’ve just watched the trailer for XIII-2. :)

    Impressions in a bit.

    Versus trailer description from andriasang live blog:

    The trailer appears to have a whole lot of gameplay footage, including combat scenes with swords and guns, a scene where you control a tank-like vehicle, a scene where you climb aboard a bipedal robot, a battle with a massive creature (this may be the combat scene from the TGS trailer), and a battle where Noctis wields his sword against a group of soldiers.

    this trailer must be out there, somewhere, as it happened 10 mins after the ff13-2 trailer

    im 3/4 through ff13, and nothing in the game has impressed me. The graphics are never amazing, except some of the cutscenes, the art design is boring, low res textures, it looks like an early gen game. story is meh. Im playing the game and it feels like ive played the same thing before. dragon quest 8 is a million times better. Should i even bother finishing the game..

    #82 4 years ago

    @82 the open world bit towards the end of the game is quite enjoyable if you like the combat system, lots of side mission and stuff, but yeah the stories garbage

  86. Deacon

    The city scenes in Versus look wank. Battle looks mashy and Crisis Core-like. The rural areas look better but overall I’m not impressed.

    All the legendary FF’s are turn-based. Versus just looks like a souped-up Bouncer at the moment.

    #86 4 years ago
  87. Erthazus

    Versus looks really nice, but kinda Crisis Core style.

  88. Bond James Bond

    God, gamers still care about FF? I feel sorry for the millions of fuck-wits that go out and buy these games based on the name alone.

    The whole FF franchise is stale as fuck and has been for an age now.

    To say the FF games are RPG’s is an insult to those developers who create “proper” RPG’s.

    I’m not a big fan of squallrinoa-lightning. It feels like lightning is the illegitamate child of rinoa and squall. I honestly love fang wayyyyy more. I just wish she had that “mode” at the end of the game. In the game, the story was severely dull. The ending was the happiest was the ending but then it made me sad happy….

    Sigh* I hope 13-2 does a better job.
