The Lightning saga born from Final Fantasy XIII is set to be taken in a brand new direction, Japanese publisher Square Enix has revealed.
September 1, 2012 will mark a special day for the company, when the producer, director and art director of FFXIII will unveil fresh information about the direction of heroine Lightning at a Tokyo-based event.
FFXIII divided critics and fans upon its release in March 2010, and was followed by a direct sequel, the awkwardly-titled Final Fantasy XIII-2, in January of this year.
Furthermore, Square has released a number of DLC packs for FFXIII-2 to flesh out the story of Lightning, such as Requiem of the Goddess.
As for the announcement itself, many have speculated Square will unveil Final Fantasy XIII-3, though it could simply be additional DLC. We’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Since the experiences between XIII and XIII-2 didn't change much, I doubt that Square will do much to the game, if indeed the announcement is for XIII-3. However, since Square has been developing Versus for forever, putting the core concept of gameplay into a XIII sequel would be a good way to show fans what's to come. I know that if the game was advertised in that way, fans would buy buy buy.

This is really a damn shame! Two title games under the XIII belt and one coming again and yet we have nothing on Versus it's like Square is laughing in the PS3 users faces.
