Well it's officially the second (single player) Final Fantasy game with a sequel. Word on the street is they "learned from their mistakes from FFXIII."
I have no idea how they plan on hitting a December 2011 release date if we have barely any information on the game. From the screenshots it looks like the story will center on Lightning and a new male character.
FFXIII was a pretty big letdown. However if the entire game had been like Gran Pulse was then it would have been truly amazing. So there is A LOT
of potential here to make a really great game.
