Final Fantasy X2
The recent announcement of Final Fantasy XIII-2 has franchise fans aflutter with the feeling you only get when you know a Final Fantasy title is several months away rather than several years.

Aside from the potential of delivering a title that ascends the divisions Final Fantasy XIII created among fans and critics, XIII-2 will also be only the third main series sequel in Final Fantasy’s storied 20+ year history – after 2007’s DS release Final Fantasy XII – Revenant Wings, and undeniably the most polarizing game in the franchise’s history, Final Fantasy X-2.

The announcement this week also makes talking about Final Fantasy X-2 wonderfully topically again, an opportunity I’ll eagerly exploit.

Trailer Park – Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

Kingdom Hearts 3DS
Square-Enix shakes up a very quiet weekend break with media and title adjustments for Kingdom Hearts’ 3DS release, now known as Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Other developments from the company saw Final Fantasy Type-0 become the new title for the PSP game Final Fantasy Agito XIII, and the curtain was pulled back slightly further to reveal a direct sequel to last year’s Final Fantasy XIII, the aptly named Final Fantasy XIII-2 – which Square-Enix was quick to announce this morning would also be hitting North American PS3’s and 360’s next winter.
