Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ultimania Omega has been released in Japan this week and, as usually, new information alongside with interviews and artwork were included in it.
New information was shared from questions regarding the new Lightning DLC which was released in last May. Toriyama comments: “Like Lightning advancing one step forward in the secret event, I think we want to take a step forward to advance our own project. From now on, I’d be happy if you could anticipate it.”
Is Toriyama really working on Final Fantasy XIII-3? Recently he mentioned that he would be working on a new project soon after XIII-2′s completion…
Gematsu also shared some new information from their translations:
Kitase: (The last part about Lightning’s DLC Episode) Explaining “XXX Years Later” would be pointless. It might seem that the line “To Be Continued…” means that Lightning’s chapter will continue in more download content, but we are doing it in a different interpretation.
Toriyama: With Lightning remaining in the 〇〇〇〇ル (crystal?) but still keeping her heart, you could say that the world of Final Fantasy XIII will be permanently 〇〇ed. I’m praying for the day to come that Lightning will surely 〇〇めて (wake up?) and Serah will be rewarded.
PS. Sorry for the lag of news lately, we have been working on other projects… The Next One.
