For those Square Enix fans who are just shaking with anticipation waiting for more Final Fantasy titles, Famitsu has some news to further whet their appetites. The latest issue of the popular Japanese gaming magazine tracks Square Enix’s progress on four upcoming Final Fantasy releases. It makes good use of percentages to demonstrate how far into development each project is.
|Final Fantasy X HD||80%|
|Final Fantasy X-2 HD||65%|
|Final Fantasy VIII (PC)||80%|
|Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII||70%|
While this does show that Square Enix is not taking any breaks from development—especially on Lightning Returns, the third title in the XIII series—there is one notable omission: Versus XIII. Unfortunately, fans of the long-delayed title will have to keep waiting for news on its progress.
Lightning Returns will be released fall 2013 in North America, Europe, and Japan for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The HD versions of Final Fantasy X and X-2 will be released 2013 in North America, Europe, and Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The HD version of Final Fantasy VIII will be released in Japan for the PC but currently has no announced release date.
