Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Square Enix 1st Production Department
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3
FF X/X-2 HD Remaster is on track though.
Famitsu recently tweeted about the development status of different projects at Square Enix, which was also in this week’s issue. This includes titles like upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD.
Apparently, Final Fantasy X HD and Final Fantasy 8 PC are both near the end of their development cycles, being 80 percent complete while Final Final X-2 HD is at 65 percent completion. Meanwhile, the third and hopefully final iteration in the FFXIII saga, namely Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is about 70 percent complete.
It seems all games will be meeting their respective release dates, making it somewhat possible that Lightning Returns releases in January 2014 at the latest. However, what’s interesting is that there is absolutely no mention of Final Fantasy Versus XIII and its development status.
Be that as it may, at least the HD versions of FF X/X-2 HD are on track. Square Enix is also set to announce a new Final Fantasy at this year’s E3 2013. Stay tuned for more details.
