The latest issue of Famitsu magazine contains some tantalizing tidbits on the future of the ever-expanding Final Fantasy XIII universe. Speaking to the publication, Square Enix’s Motomu Toriyama indicated that we can expect an announcement pertaining to new FFXIII content at the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary event in late August.

“The [FFXIII-2] Lighting download content had an ending that left a feeling of mystery and hope. The day when the meaning of this will come to light is not too far off,” said Toriyama-san. Interestingly, some fans have speculated that Square is actually beavering away on a sequel to Final Fantasy XIII-2, fuelled by the ‘to be continued’ message at the game’s climax and subsequent DLC endings.

At the GDC held at the Taipei International Conference Center in Taiwan, Motomu Toriyama of Square Enix held a presentation on the development between Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Toriyama, who held the position of director for both games, took the podium and revealed the inner working of development on Final Fantasy XIII to a crowded room. The Final Fantasy series has long been regarded as a visually high-spec series and Final Fantasy XIII was no different, employing at its peak 180 people to work as artists. Unfortunately, in order to attempt to tap the hardware’s full potential, new development software must be created for every game. Indeed development on XIII began before the groundwork had been completing leading to difficulties later on. Toriyama himself admitted that while publicity and promotion for XIII had been a success, he had some regrets on the side of managing the design and development.

For all those who've played Requiem of the Goddess, what did you think of it? Did it fill in the gaps felt untraveled by XIII-2; was Serah and Lightning's reunion everything you wanted it to be or vice versa?
