Square Enix has detailed its plans for a three day Final Fantasy 25th anniversary event, and according to Andriasang, will give a presentation on the future of the Final Fantasy XIII “project”. It’s not entirely clear what this means although there won’t be any more DLC for Final Fantasy XIII-2 – so we may be graced with a XIII-3, if domain names are anything to go by. But wait, there’s more – maybe the publisher will finally give us some hope for the long-delayed Final Fantasy Versus XIII, or a sequel to Type-0, both once touted as part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis sequence. The FFXIII presentation takes place on September 1.

Square Enix has released a new batch of screenshots to celebrate the launch of Final Fantasy XIII-2 in the UK today, and as one would expect from a FF game, they are drop dead gorgeous – even if they are just showing combat. Say whatever you will about the series’ gameplay or storylines over the years, there’s no denying it has always been one of the more visually pleasing franchises out there. This time out, the sequel to FFXIII puts players in the shoes of Lightning’s sister Serah as she a Noel, a hunter from the future, journey across the boundaries of time and ultimately come face-to-face with antagonist Caius Ballad and his interesting hair decor. It’s out on PS3 and Xbox 360.
