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.
We weren’t expecting much from this years Tokyo Game Show but for the hundredth time, any kind of official news for Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII has been delayed. Instead of once again being disappointed this time around though, we have a guarantee we’ll finally see something worth while soon.
A source at TGS has revealed that although the games have a minor presence there, they will actually be getting an entire “Fabula Nova Crystallis Conference” where new media will most likely be revealed. The conference which is taking part in January should hopefully answer our prayers. Hopefully it won’t just be press only.
