Final Fantasy XIII’s development team’s feeling the heat, kids.

“There is an unusual sort of pressure on Final Fantasy XIII,” said producer Yoshinori Kitase, speaking in EDGE magazine.

“I’d say we need this game to have ten times the success of these smaller titles.

“But I don’t think that means we’ve compromised in terms of the game design or creativity in any way. Indeed, the development of the game has very much followed in the tradition of the previous titles in the series, welcoming input from the full range of development staff.”

FFXIII’s been in development for five years now. The demo’s out in Japan later this month.
