There’s going to be a very special scene in Final Fantasy XIII-2. Speaking at Japan’s CEDEC conference, Square Enix mobile business senior manager Takashi Tokita spoke of the late Yoshinori Kanada. Kanada was a storyboard artist who, among other things, worked on Final Fantasy XIII. One board in particular was for a scene that didn’t make it into the game. According to Tokita, its omission was something director Motomu Toriyama regretted as he quite liked the scene. Not this time, however. The scene, in which Odin holds Lightning, will be included in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2.
You can see the sequence in question at the end of the clip below, as well as the board it originated from.
