Final Fantasy XIII Gets A Sequel, Because You Couldn't Get Enough Of The Original

So apparently Square felt that Final Fantasy XIII, heavily criticized for being too linear and arbitrary, wasn’t quite complete. Either that or they’re hemorrhaging money from the even more heavily-criticized FFXIV (which they have actually apologized for), and need to shore up the cash reserves.

Whatever the case, this winter they’ll be putting out Final Fantasy XIII-2, a direct sequel to XIII with an “evolved” combat system and new story.

I can’t get excited about this, personally. I lost all interest in XIII after hearing about what kind of game it was, and the last time I played a Square sequel, it was Final Fantasy X-2, which was just pure garbage (and I liked X a lot).

Will you buy? Square-Enix sure hopes so.
