The lights are on
Square Enix will hold a special "Experience Final Fantasy" event on Friday, August 31 in Seattle from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the ACT Theatre in Seattle (700 Union Street). Fans will learn "new details about the direction of Lightning’s story."
This event takes place during the same time as the planned Final Fantasy event in Japan. It's believed Square Enix will make an announcement for Final Fantasy XIII-3 at this time, however it is still unconfirmed. There will be a video message from creators Yoshinori Kitase
(producer), Motomu Toriyama (director) and Isamu Kamikokuryo (art
director). The general public is able to attend.
There's also two concerts celebrating the music of Final Fantasy. The Chicagoland Pops Orchestra and Chorus will perform at the 25th Anniversary Distant Worlds: The Celebration concert of Final Fantasy music on Friday, December 7 at 8:00 p.m. at the Akoo Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. The Final Fantasy XI: 10th Anniversary Concert will be held on Saturday, September 22 at 8:00 p.m. at the Zellerback Auditorium in Berkeley, California.
The official website for the 25th Anniversary of Final Fantasy can be found here.
I've been waiting for Square to do SOMETHING for the 25th of their biggest franchise...
A few things I'm looking for. Some FFX HD content, ANY kind of Versus announcement (please!), FF Type-0 English trailer and release date for the west, and sure...Why not a FFXIII-3 announcement as well? Go big or go home Square ^^
Does Lightning become less of a b*tch?
Only a few people from the original Squaresoft still exist in Square-Enix. It seems like Nobou Uematsu and Hironobu Sakaguchi should be there. Without the proper team, you are just really talking Final Fatnasy XII and on.
this leaves a sour taste in my mouth, knowing that this is probably all to announce the next FFXIII.. my god those games are terrible, i was shocked that they made 1 sequel, now another.. *** awful. if they announce a new final fantasy unrelated to other final fantasies (how it should be) then i will be interested
You know what? I'm not really a huge FF fan, and I'm okay with that.
How about instead of that, they release some firm info on Versus perhaps?
Well I can't be there, so if you guys do a feature on it I would really appreciate it, since I love Final Fantasy.
gosh, no more ffxiii please. i just *really* want some versus news
Like many others that have posted already, I'm really hoping they give us a worthwhile update on Final Fantasy Versus XIII at this event. I'm not going to get my hopes up though. I'm also hoping for more news on Final Fantasy X HD. I loved the original game and would love to play it again in HD. And I don't know how I feel about the imminent announcement of Final Fantasy XIII-3. I enjoyed the first two games but I was really hoping they were going to wrap up the story in XIII-2. Here's hoping they end it this time.
