Final Fantasy XIII-2 director explains conclusion teaser

Downloadable content and multiple endings.

If you’ve played Final Fantasy XIII-2 until the end (possible spoiler incoming, sort of), you’ll know it’s concluded with a teasing “To Be Continued.” Many assumed this meant a Final Fantasy XIII-3 is being planned. According to director Motomu Toriyama, that’s not exactly the case.

Speaking with Impress Watch (via My Game News Flash) at the Taipei Game Show, Toriyama said that the game’s multiple paradox endings and upcoming downloadable content are both reasons for the conclusion. He would like for players to seek out and experience each ending; and Square will continue to release new downloadable content extending the length of the title as a whole. Aside from the upcoming Lightning and Amodar coliseum battle, they’re currently preparing a “big episode” for Lightning, which is “separate from the main story.”

As for Toriyama, he will continue to work on Final Fantasy XIII-2 until all of the downloadable content has been released.
