The developers behind Final Fantasy XIII, Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama, told WriteAboutGames that they would take the oppurtunity to make a sequel to Final Fantasy XIII if the chance came along.
The main point for them is the success of the first game though; “That depends on how well the game sells in the West”.
Kitase has said that there are several points in the game he would like the chance to refine in a sequel, “In the past three years we worked both on the world and on the various systems. Creating these systems isn’t very glamorous and can frankly be a bit boring. If we could do a XIII-2, we could direct all our attention to the story and refine what we have already built.”
The pair also had the following to say on the chance of a Final Fantasy XV, “We do not know if there will be a XV. This depends a lot on the success of XIII. Also, it is difficult to pinpoint elements that are typical Final Fantasy.”
“They are mostly invisible: part of the DNA of the game, that everyone recognizes as typical Final Fantasy. But if there is a XV, I hope the way we wrote our characters carries over. We strived to create believable people of flesh and blood. They are not robots. And they are not super heroes. I hope this humanity is something we will see again.”
Final Fantasy XIII launched earlier this week, selling over 5 million units to date.
