Final Fantasy XIII / FF13

Final Fantasy 13 – the games H1

On May the 8th, 2006, Final Fantasy XIII (FF13) was confirmed as a work in progress by Square Enix at its annual Pre-E3 conference. It has been confirmed that there will be at the very least three (3) Final Fantasy XIII titles released, under the main title of Final Fantasy XIII: Fabula Nova Crystallis (which translates to “The New Tale of the Crystal“). These titles are Final Fantasy XIII – the main game, most resembling previous Final Fantasy titles; Final Fantasy Versus XIII – this is an action game, the release of which could be expected to coincide with that of the ‘main’ Final Fantasy 13, but this is in no way confirmed. Final Fantasy Agito XIII is the mobile phone FF13 game which will boast multiplayer capabilities.

Final Fantasy XIII H1

Firstly, it should be noted that this game has been confirmed to appear for the forthcoming PlayStation 3. This means that rumour of a multi-platform Final Fantasy title (apart from FFXI) is thus far unsubstantiated, though I will cover this in more detail shortly. The team behind FFXIII include Motomu Toriyama as the director, Yoshinori Kitase will be the producer, Tetsuya Nomura shall be the character designer, interestingly Masashi Hamauzu will be working on sound, and Isamu Kamikokuryo will provide art for the game. The story of Final Fantasy XIII appears to revolve around a female lead. Yes, another female lead despite the (in my opinion unfair) criticisms of FFX-2 star Yuna. Not much is yet known about the character, other than that she will weild numerous different weapons (well, a gun and a sword!).

Final Fantasy Versus XIII H1

Another PlayStation 3 title, FFVXIII (even the natural abbreviation is a mouthful! I think we’ll refer to it as Versus from now on…) is said to be in some ways similar to Kingdom Hearts, especially as the developing team are so closely associated with the KH team. Nomura will be directing Versus, as well as designing the characters; the acclaimed Shinji Hashmoto shall produce the game, with Yoko Shimomura working on the soundtrack. Bizarrely, despite also being named “Final Fantasy 13″, the game will have a completely different set of characters from the main FFXIII game, as well as an independent storyline. This renders me senseless as to why the games both come under the FF XIII title. Presumably relationships between the titles will emerge nearer the games release. Even less of the Versus storyline is known than FF XIII, though the system is said to feature heavy action gameplay elements. One can but compare this to Dirge of Cerberus, where FFXIII will be compared to the original FFVII.

Final Fantasy Agito XIII H1

Next, in what could be an endless line of Final Fantasy XIII titles, is Final Fantasy Agito 13. Agito is going to be a mobile phone game. We know next to nothing about Agito, except that it is said to be a prequel, rather than a sequel to the main FFXIII. We can only recommend Square Enix’s little blurb as a piece of helpful insight into the games future:

“FINAL FANTASY Agito XIII arrives as an entirely separate entity for mobile phones, offering players easy on-the-go access to the FINAL FANTASY XIII universe. Utilizing gameplay functions only available through mobile phones, this title provides players with a unique take on a story accessible anywhere their real-life adventures may take them.”

Conclusions H1

It appears Square is ready to cash in on a number of different Final Fantasy XIII games. Square have hinted that they will not be stopping at just these three aforementioned titles, but will add one (or more) further titles in the future.

  1. Final Fantasy Net - News - Final Fantasy XIII to appear on the PS3? Said,

    [...] Now, back to the subject of this post. It’s been suggested by an FFNet reader who claims to have associations with Square-Enix, that Final Fantasy XIII is already a work-in-progress. It was suggested that the game FF13 will appear on the PlayStation 3. Clearly I do not know how valid a source this is. It’s pretty much pure speculation. I cannot invisage too much development with FF13 considering the problems with Final Fantasy XII. I’ll of course let you all know what news we hear (if indeed we do hear any news). [...]

  2. Final Fantasy XIII E3 News! - News - Final Fantasy Net Said,

    [...] The article goes on to discuss 2 further Final Fantasy XIII games; one for the mobile (apparently named Final Fantasy XIII Agito), and Final Fantasy Versus XIII for the PlayStation 3. This appears to be an attempt to emulate the success of the Final Fantasy VII sequels (and prequels, for you pedants)… the only problem I can see is that it lacks, at least at this stage, the cult status of Final Fantasy VII. Let’s not get cynical too early in the article, though — I have to end with my usual gloomy outlook, don’t I? [...]

  3. Final Fantasy XIII / 13 site launch almost ready! - News - Final Fantasy Net Said,

    [...] Well, as many of you may have anticipated, Final Fantasy Net will soon be launching a brand new Final Fantasy XIII website! There are a few changes and moderations that need to be made to the site before it’s official release, though. The site does not yet have all the content we have on FF13 so far, and so we need to get atleast most of that up before a launch. There is not yet an official launch date, though expect it to appear within the next week or so! [...]
