Yup, another sequel to Final Fantasy XIII. “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” will mark the end of the Lightning Saga, and will supposedly the final installment in the series which involves Lightning. Why they didn’t simply call it “Final Fantasy XIII-3″ is beyond me, the inconsistencies in the way Square Enix titles their games is both confusing and amusingly classic at times.

In typical fashion, producer Yoshinori Kitase announces the new title for us, but instead of showing us gameplay and trailers, he simply talks about crystals and how significantly poetic they are (just like the Final Fantasy series, of course). People who aren’t fans of the XIII series are upset by this news, and people who are fans are reasonably pleased. It’ll be nice to see Square Enix finishing this story and moving on to other projects, as it has been a very long one.
