Versus XIII, Agito XIII pushing for story-driven gameplay, says Toriyama

Versus XIII

Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama has said Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII will be aiming for story-driven gameplay.

Speaking during a session at GDC last week, his line suggests both games will take a linear path over an open world: something for which FFXIII was criticised.

He also explained the links that ties all three games together into the series known as the Fabula Nova Crystalis saga, stating humans are controlled by legendary Gods. FFXIII players will know them as fal'Cie.

FFXIII released last week. It's just been announced it's reached number one in the UK.

Agito XIII and Versus XIII, meanwhile, have both gone underground. The latter of which was due to be revealed at E3, but it may not be shown, according to director Tetsuya Nomura.
