Final Fantasy XIII story to last around 50 hours


In a new preview of Final Fantasy XIII, Spanish gaming site Meristation was able to have a playthrough of the demo being shown at GamesCom 2009. Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama were also on hand for some questions, in which they were asked about the length of the game.

Final Fantasy IX was brought up considering the game was a mere twelve hours long. Kitase and Toriyama laughed at this, responding that the game’s main storyline would be around 50 hours long.

Sounds good, Square.
