FFXIII Team Talks Missing Content, FFXIII-2 Possibility

For a while now, there have been rumors about extra/downloadable content missing from Final Fantasy XIII, and now we have a bit more information on the subject.

Thanks to a FFXIII Ultimania Omega interview with producer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama (as reported by Andriasang), we now know what we've been missing. Well, at least it's one element we've been missing: the Seventh Ark. Originally, it was an area in FFXIII that featured quest-like play and free battles, but they couldn't quite reach the level of quality they desired and there was one other reason it didn't work...wait for it- "because of the great differences between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 network systems."

You guys can do with that what you will. As for the lack of DLC, Kitase simply said that next time around, he'd "make preparations for online elements and DLC from the start." Yes, well, we don't need an online element but with the constant Westernizing going on, perhaps it's inevitable in the next FF. But the interesting news doesn't end there; those of you who remember FFX-2 may not be too shocked, either:

It seems Kitase "wants to do something that will allow players to further understand the FFXIII story by better passing along the Fabula Nova Crystalis mythology and showing things that won't even make it into Final Fantasy Agito XIII and Versus XIII." When asked if this could mean the existence of FFXIII-2, Kitase said he wasn't sure and that it would "depend in the end on fan reaction." Toriyama added- "I'd like to at some point make a story where Lightning ends up happy." For the record, the FFXIII team is currently working on its next game, and Toriyama said they want to "incorporate some of the things they were unable to do for FFXIII's download content."

There's a lot to think about here. At this point, we're just a little annoyed at the continuous stream of, "we had to make this sacrifice for this reason" in regards to multiplatform development, and as for FFXIII-2, sure. We'll go for that. We loved FFXIII, regardless of what the haters say. ...just make it an RPG, please.

Let me elaborate.
(Comment still pending moderator approval on WC, at this point)

I'm not really surprised, but I didn't think they would do it, either... and I always kinda knew the PS3 version was gimped, but this is really the first time they've come out and said it... I kinda liked FFXIII, but it sucked as an FF entry...

I dunno... when I say I don't know how to react, I'm incredibly luke-warm. I'm both excited and frustrated. I'm torn.

It would be interesting if they would change the battle system, since that's what happened between FFX and FFX-2. If FFXIII-2 is to release, that's the main thing I'll be looking forward to.

Also, in FFXIII, I was really disappointed how they went back to the old "separate" battle screens. I'd find an enemy close to a cliff, only to be battling somewhere nowhere near it. It's just a different experience for me. If they can incorporate FFXII style for when you encounter enemies, and perhaps a new battle system, I might be interested.

XIII's battle system is just as turn-based as XII's is. In XII you can (conceivably) control every character. Which (for some unknown and probably dumb reason) you can't do in XIII. But that's the only major difference I can think of.

None of them are truly turn-based. I simply stated how I would prefer a turn-based Final Fantasy.

That doesn't change the fact that I significantly prefer XIII's battle system over XII's. Opinions.

Your right. Apologies for being crass. I just can't understand how anyone would prefer XIII's battle system to any of the other Final Fantasy games. It had promise but auto battle, the lack of control of more than one character and game overs if the party leader dies regardless of the rest of the parties status made it a bust.

No problem. I can understand why people dislike XIII, but I find it pretty good as a game. Don't get me wrong though, FFXIII is my second least favorite Final Fantasy, being XII the first.
XII was great in so many aspects, but I just couldn't find myself liking the battle system, which made the experience less interesting.

@Arvis
Of course it is, but I was talking about XII and XIII. Was X mentioned in the conversation?
FFX is my favorite FF, and I'd love to see future FF games with a similar battle system. :)

I'd agree to that only because Vs. XIII is possibly exclusive to the PS3, so therefore no standardizing. With FFXIII, FFXIII-2 would have to include the X360 in mind because it only makes sense.

Otherwise, I liked the story in FFXIII, and I don't know anything yet about FF Vs. XIII's story, so I can't decide which I'd rather have right now.

So, instead of sacrificing all that extra content for continuity, artistic merit, and flow; they actually cut that content because of the differences in the PS3 and Xbox360?

Wow, I did not see that one coming...</sarcasm>

I would really love to see what they could have done with the game but at this point I don't think I want to give them any more money for it.

At least they are being more honest about why the content was cut out now, but it seems a too little too late.

I would be happy to see a FXIII-2. Unlike many I rather enjoyed the game and value it as one of the better campaigns in my collection. In all honesty I don't really care what the next FF is because it will most likely be a D1P either way.. unless it's MMO..

This pisses me off. So they cut content because of 360 limitations then they want to sell to us as another game? Screw you Square. You too Katise. You should have done it right the first time but your greed hindered your ability to give us the Final Fantasy experiance we should have got all along.

Oh maybe, well get more diverse monsters instead of the same ones in every area only different colors. Maybe well get towns, NPC's and get to explore more than one section of the game.

/Bite me

This is pathetic. If I pick this up, bargain bin it will be. Not going to give Square money for a game that should have been apart of the original but wasn't because of the crappie console.

Final Fantasy X-2 was a resonably good game and certainly extended the Universe of Final fantasy 10. While it was shorter than FFX it was definately worth the full cost of the game. I'm all for FF13-2 if it helps extend the games universe adds more to the story, brings in online elements and in terms of game length as size is just as big as 13.

I looked back at an older PSXextreme article about FFXIII ( http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/6605.html).

It mentions about them cutting some content from FXIII, and saying it was only taken out of context. Now I hear them saying they cut out which looks to be like a pretty major feature, because of the difference between the consoles.

While I give them some props to finally tell the truth behind it, I'm still a bit annoyed.

I'm torn. While I can't deny the inherent quality of FFXIII, I'm not sure if I would want them to 'end' the story. I thought the way it ended was fine, with the exception of what happened to Fang and Vanille. I liked those two. I wouldn't mind seeing FFXIII-2, provided they make the battle system a little more involved.

On the other hand, the idea of Final Fantasy requiring online elements (with the exception of the MMOs because they're designed that way) is abhorrent. If I'm paying for Final Fantasy, I expect it to be everything that there is. Square-Enix are one of very few companies that hasn't been trying to nickle and dime us, but DLC for FF would be just that.

Why can't Square-Enix stop talking about games that they plan to do? Why not just focus on the games that they're currently working on and finish them? It seems that they've been announcing games left and right, mostly teases. I personally find it annoying. It also gives me the impression that S-E is getting their hands full will all the games they are announcing.

Too many FF fanboys claiming this game isn't worth the money because it isn't turned based, etc...but too others like myself, this game was amazing. I'd gladly play $60 bucks for a great game that takes over 60 hrs to beat. I could care less about towns and side missions as this package already is time consuming, but people are complaining a little too much. I know alot of people who hate the game because it isn't open world like RDR, not because they hated the gameplay. FF's fans are mad, but people like myself don't feel the sameway. I will admit, this game was terrilby boring all the way up to chapter 6, but after that...I fell in love with this game. The gameplay is tense and exciting and bosses deserve strategy. So after saying that, I would proudly by buy FFXIII-2. Everyones preference is different. You guys can go on and say you hate it because you didn't get what you expected, but what you should do is appreciate it like Ben while knowing this isn't what you expected. I don't know the lore of FF as I have never played one before FFXIII, but I do know FXIII is an exceptional game. Great story telling, intense gameplay, and worth the admission price.

It would shock me if someone would to dismiss a FF game entirely because it isn't turn based. I think there's more to it, and there probably is. If that's the case, FF vs. XIII won't do so well for those guys.

Biggest thing about Final Fantasy has always been the story for me, and the value from the length of the main plot. FFXIII served those well for me, so I'm fine with. While the gameplay may be too quick for some, it does at least require some strategy like you say. I was surprised how things can dramatically be more efficient when I set up the correct Paradigms. I'm a fan of turn-based, but I don't mind the quick gameplay of FFXIII. That's my preference.

Right, because we have never given a non turn based RPG a chance. Is this your nonsense post for the day?

no one said the game had to be turn based or open world in the manner RDR is. We expected a true Final Fantasy. We got a twitch fest aimed gamers with abysmal taste like yours instead. Given your previous posts and taste in games, its not surprising you loved it.

@FM23

while it is quite good that you appreciated the FF13 as is (as I did as well), however, i have to say that since you never played any FF before, you did not have sth to compare to see this is NOT a final fantasy game, nor does it have any classic FF elements like all its predecessors had (including FF12). As a FF brand (the greatest JRPG brand), the classic elements are sth long time loyal FF lovers expected to see under that name, when it failed to deliver and defies its history, these negative reactions are quite normal, and I believe these reaction and attitude is not sth you, as someone new to the FF series, could foresee or share with. but it is exactly these millions loyal FF lovers embraced the series this far, as World pointed out as well.

so in short, if FF keeps failing to deliver what made it great all along, the days for the death of the series are numbered.

Too everyone who didn't like my comment...I understand it can come off as ignorant, but my point is things change with time and FF is one of them. I hate that MGS is becoming a hack and slash, but I'm not going to let that blind me. Now many people can hate the game for what it didn't become, but for me this game is great. Haven't played a FF before, but this doesn't change a thing. Mafia II didn't feel like the first one, but I still enjoyed it. GOWIII story wasn't as heartpouding as GOWI, but I loved it. All I'm saying is the ultra fans need to stop assuming the public loves this games because of the obvious and realize alot of people enjoyed this game than hated it. Most of the people who don't appreciate it are fanboys. All good, but things change. Any adult should know this...right? But I do understand why fanboys are mad...I am not ignorant. If something special too me changed abruptly, I would hate it too.

lol FFXIII is the biggest fiasco Square-Enix has ever pulled.

Man, it's just sad now.

for FF13, they made two big mistake:

1. the world is mostly "indoor factory/hanger/cavish environment", and lack of lavish and vibrant outdoor mountains, oceans, seaside, green plains, rocks, rivers, blue sky. Should it have had more of these said environment, it would have felt much more classic RPGish.

2. Too less customization in the battle, mostly AI controlled or semi-auto battle options. make it less classic RPGish as well.

Should they fix these problems and add a world map and some towns and make it less linearity, in the case of FF13-2, it could still be a great JRPG this gen. but this might be too much for the stupid Yoshi Wada to take.

They should just get to work on Final Fantasy XV and make it a proper RPG.

I just don't understand how they can flop a game, refuse to admit the other consoles weak media support and finally come out with the truth without expecting animosity.I can't tell you whether I like ffvxiii because I never played it yet...maybe I'll just pass it up in favor of an possible better iteration..

As a previous FFXIII hater that was converted by both Ben and LV. I have to say I really enjoyed it after the 20 sthn hour mark. Was it my fav FF, hell no not even by a long shot but was it kindda enjoyable hell yes.

As for a new one a really don't know how to react, I really prefer FFXIII combat system to what FFv13is rumored to be, I guess i'll have to w8 for agito

You loved 13? I envy you..



..ok moment's gone. I don't envy you.


I'm your polar opposite--I absolutely couldn't wait until I had 13 on my hands, but then, after pouring what I estimate was 25-30 hours in (as per the people who played it recommended to appreciate the game), I ended up abhorring it. Some battle I just slept through pressing confirm confirm confirm. And for the tough battles sometimes its not really strategy but more on luck.. or yeah, a lot of luck!

i wouldn't go as far as saying I loved it but I enjoyed it. I disagree with you regarding the battle system as it is strategic, the difference is you have to choose the best battle team before a match then the match will be a breeze but if you go in a fight with the wrong team the fight will be a nightmare.

As why I enjoyed it because it is the closest thing we will wver get this gen to turn-based so yeah it was good, will I repeat it nooooo, will I recommend it you can bet on it

i have played and beaten all FF except 8 & 13. 8 was great strategic with a little interactivity but my ps died & i never got back to it. as for 13 i kept falling asleep going in a straight line and just couldn't take it no more. traded it in the 2nd week after release. the battle system was boring and not to strategic imo....

I know true turn based is toast, that isn't even the issue here. This sounds like proof positive PS3 owners were in fact screwed blued and tattooed out of a fuller experience.

That's how i read this. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and bought this game against my gut feeling and now this. HA!

I wonder if they even understand why some would be upset about this.

i will after i beat 7 again. as far as this ff13 thing goes they should never say ff13 again.
i lik rpg because it gives a good story and a sense of growth throughout your jorney. like going to a place you havent been just to run like hell because your not strong enough yet. I really miss turn-base & exploring the ff world....we need an exclusive ff period.

LOL! This guy over at IGN summed it up nicely.

"i'll go with it as long as they just tell me how to play the game in the manual instead of making me play 20+ hours of what i would describe as the equivalent to opening up your first christmas present expecting it to be a glorious only to find a pair of wilkinson socks..."

Perfect! But please, not a 20+ hour manual. I fully finish reading manuals while in the crapper, so 20+ in the bathroom doesn't sound too appealing to me...

Eh, whatever.

Dragon Warrior/Quest is a better JRPG franchise anyway! :D

....Actually, that franchise has sold more than FF in Japan.

Dragon Quest is a Enix brand isn't it? Too bad Level 5 doesn't own the IP.

If they were to make an FFXIII-2 and make it a PS3 exclusive, then they might make a good game.

I'm certainly not going to buy the scraps off of SE floor. Especially since I didn't particularly enjoy they're "choice" material.

Final Fantasy XIII ruined The Final Fantasy series for me. Ill admit I always hated FF gameplay but loved the stories. FFXIII just left a bad taste in my mouth because everything other than the graphics sucked balls.

"because of the great differences between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 network systems."

So once again Xbox Live is doing less for gamers but asking for more. Please Sony make certain your PS4 kicks the snot out of XBox so MS is forced to have to offer their online services for free. Really, it'd be worth it for every gamer in the end.
