Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase revealed several details on the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2 in a fan event which took place over the week, as reported by Andriasang.
He first announced that the game’s development is now 90% complete, after a one and a half year development time till now. He said that the release date will be confirmed at an event in Tokyo, which is obviously TGS (Tokyo Game Show), which kicks off Thursday morning. We do know that the game’s slated for a January 2012 release in the US and early 2012 in the UK, but if development is going so strong, with even English voice work out of the way, who knows, we could have the game by December.
When asked how long the game will be, Kitase said that the main plotline will be shorter than Final Fantasy XIII’s, but extra content will keep fans busy. When asked if the game will have any DLC, he was told by the PR guys to not answer. Unfortunately. But he did say they’re looking into it.
Hints about a planned special edition for the game, and players with FFXIII save files being rewarded in XIII-2, were also dropped.
