Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 director Motomu Toriyama was recently interviewed by Famitsu at this year’s Game Developers Conference in Taipei. When the subject of a further plans for the XIII series came up — possibly announcing something at Square Enix’s 25th Anniversary event for the Final Fantasy series, Toriyama hinted at an announcement in the possible near future. Toriyama has cryptically hinted that the Final Fantasy XIII series may have continuation in some form before.
“The [FFXIII-2] Lightning download content had an ending that left a feeling mystery and hope. The day when the meaning of this will come to light is not too far off.”
Two possible venues come to mind: the 25th Anniversary event on August 31st through September 2nd, and Tokyo Game Show 2012 which will run from September 20th to the 23rd. Toriyama briefly commented on the status of Final Fantasy X HD, citing that there are many things to consider and asked fans anticipating the remaster to please patiently wait.
