Toriyama hints at Final Fantasy XIII-3

Final Fantasy XIII-3 coming before Versus XIII?

We thought Square Enix started teasing Final Fantasy XIII-3 last month, but a recent Famitsu interview with Final Fantasy XIII-2 director Motomu Toriyama at GDC Taipei came with a hint far clearer.

Asked if anything Final Fantasy XIII related would be announced at the upcoming 25th anniversary Final Fantasy event (an art gallery in Shibuya), he responded: “The ending of Lightning’s DLC episode remains mysterious, but I thought that the way it ended was hopeful. The day may soon be coming where the meaning of that will be revealed.”

According to our pals Alex Donaldson and Erren Van Duine, both of RPGSite, a Final Fantasy XIII-3 is being planned for release before Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Of course, take that as rumor until confirmed.

Asked for a status update on Final Fantasy X HD, Toriyama said: “With regard to HD conversions, I think there are many places to be verified, so please wait a little more.”

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
