XIII 2  logo black 545x400 Final Fantasy XIII 2 E3 2011 Trailer

In a very rare move, Square Enix is making a direct sequel to one of their titles!   Final Fantasy XIII-2 will tell the story from a different perspecive – the opposite perspective in fact.  Serah, your rescued sister from the last game, will be finding her much tougher sister Lightning this time around.  Check it out:

Set a few years after Lightning and the others saved Cocoon, some survivors have decided to start over by rebuilding on Gran Pulse. Lightning, however, is nowhere to be found and thought dead by many, but Serah believes otherwise. When her town is suddenly overrun by monsters, a mysterious man named Noel appears to save her. Together, the two set off to find Lightning…

FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 is the follow-up to the 2010 hit title, FINAL FANTASY XIII, and the latest installment in the world-renowned FINAL FANTASY series, which has shipped over 97 million units worldwide. FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 features an all-star production staff including producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Motomu Toriyama, character designer Tetsuya Nomura and art director Isamu Kamikokuryo.

The graphics were incredible on Final Fantasy XIII, so it can only be polished from there.   Glad to see the original team back to work on this stellar franchise.  Look for more information as we get our eyes on it this week.  While you wait, here is the announcement trailer!
