Final Fantasy XIII Agito For PSP: Not Any Time Soon
Initially, Final Fantasy XIII Agito was only announced for the mobile platform, which instantly sucked all the excitement out of the project. Let's face it; the hardcore gamers are playing their games on a PSP or DS and not a freakin' phone. But things got a lot more interesting when Square-Enix revealed last month at their private party event that Final Fantasy XIII Agito would also be coming to the PSP.
This means Sony's handheld will receive yet another top-quality RPG (we presume), but at the same time, we strongly suggest you seek your role-playing fix elsewhere for the time being. According to Kotaku, character designer Tetsuya Nomura says that while Agito is "currently running on PSP hardware and spitting out new screenshots," the finished product is a long ways off. ...a long, long ways off. In fact, in speaking with Japanese publication Dengeki, Nomura says we shouldn't expect the game until after both Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII are done and out the door. Clearly, it takes time to develop three potential blockbuster titles all at once, but even so, PSP owners are going to have quite the extended wait for Final Fantasy XIII Agito. Not to worry, though; Square-Enix still has plenty in the hopper for the DS, and besides, for a true FF experience, don't you wanna play on a next-gen console?
If anything new pops up for Agito over the next few months, we'll be sure to let you know about it, but...well, we won't be looking too hard. This news basically means we can put the game on the back burner and leave it there for a good long time.
