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.

With Type-0 HD a little over a week away from release worldwide, Square Enix is spotlighting the game's english voice acting crew. It's a nice change from the traditionally Japanese-heavy voice acting that has permeated most of the recent trailer releases.
