A Fabulous Decade

Square Enix has given fans the world over reasons to clap and cry, all at once. In an interview with Nintendo Dream, and subsequently hijacked by IGN, Shinji Hashimoto divulged more details on the company’s intentions to draw out the Fabula Nova Crystallis project over the next ten years, likening it to the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series.

"Although speaking with a Nintendo magazine, Hashimoto brought up Final Fantasy XIII as a comparison for Square Enix's decision to expand upon the FFVII storyline through the Compilation project years after the game's original release. 'Different from something like VII, which we expanded upon afterwards, with Fabula Nova Crystallis FFXIII, we've thought about an expansive world setting from the start. Under the idea of wanting everyone to be sucked into the world for 10 years, we're preparing a number of categories.' He likened this approach to films like Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings."

Fans of the venerated series should strap on their helmets, because the next ten years are looking to be packed with lucky number XIII.

Another of the big reveals today was Final Fantasy Agito XIII, or as it's now known, Final Fantasy Type-0. Why the name change? Game Director Tabata simply thought "the game wasn't enough like Final Fantasy XIII".
