tri-Ace helped develop Final Fantasy XIII-2

Tokyo-based dev helped in gameplay, art, and programming.

tri-Ace, developer of the Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile franchises, aided Square Enix in development on Final Fantasy XIII-2.

A tweet from Yuichiro Kitao, lead programmer on Resonance of Fate and battle programmer on Valkyrie Profile 2 and Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, tweeted about tri-Ace’s involvement in the RPG sequel’s development earlier today. According to the developer, tri-Ace helped in the gameplay, art, and programming fields.

The Tokyo-based studio is listed under third-party contractors in the credits, right above Animaroid, who helped create the CG movie scenes in the first game.
