guarantee we will have a whiles wait yet, but there are people who seem to want to keep bringing in the summons. i myself wish for it. it looked like the materia thing was quite a good idea too if somehow to mix between crystarium and materia and the old "all summon" would be EPIC enought for anyone lol. but 13-3 will be here. took me 5 completions of 13-2 to say hurry up to 13-3. i really hate the words "TO BE CONTINUED..." its like a thorne in my toe. Also i think its poor the way that all before 10 are as this company would say "too good" for xbox and they wont re-release it for marketplace for that reason. thats just saying go buy a ps3/pc/ps1. when clearly it wouldnt be that hard... pc - microsoft, xbox - microsft. not everyone likes playstation software. mix a little old with the new i would say, make it interesting, bring back cloud and his gang, for a rewind in FFVII-2 "the nightmare ends" in a "dream world" you eventually go back and carry on a dream from a while back. why not try the same with final fantasy?? not like its much different. not using spoilers ere. anyways happy gaming and looking forward to 13-3 but please dont put monster taming bk in was annoying!

Yep, with even more hints on it, it must be certain. We will likely find out at either Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary at the end of August, or the Tokyo Game Show during the third week of September. Both big events for Square Enix. Wondering if Ben will be posting photos and news when these events take place?

A new Project was announced to be under way in the XIII-2 Ultimainia Omega. We know its not a FF7 remake as they currently have no plans for it. FF14 2.0 and FFVs-13 has been in development by another team for 6 years now and long overdue. Whilst it seems to hint at XIII-3, it could be FF15 or maybe not a FF game at all. Any thoughts on what it may be and when we will find out about it??

After talkng about how the downloadable content ended, the guys behind the game said they are working on a new project that clearly hints at a trilogy. Well they left it open enough, so why not?

if they do announce FF13-3 i hope it soon denied or admit it SE 1 way or the other because hypeing up a game split the community down the middle if you read what i read on gamefaqs. there a trolls there that dont like FF & others saying can't wait when a troll posted a link confirming FF13-3 when it clearly false.

The secret ending hints that the others (whose fates are not known) could embark on a journey to defeat Caius and seal the door of souls, ending the chaos. the fact Lightening is alsleep in the same dream as Noel was, means a third game can take place where the second left off. Hints very strongly about a final part to the story. As SE have shown in the previous two installments, anything is possible. Plus Sazh has a ship. That would solve the issue of travelling to new and past areas. The same vision was seen by the other characters before the final battle in XIII too.

as much as i want to believe serah vision of seeing her friend and family at new bodham at present time(003af?) i just don't think that can happen after lighhtning long(real long) sleep and noel is of couse alive since he is imortal now so i wonder what twist in the story now. (if im wrong it just because i've have not tryed getting the secret ending)

Must be working on a new game as still not a peep from Square Enix, yet they were very quick to rubbish rumors of Versus being renamed and FF15 and also said in an interview last month that remakes are not going to happen as new games take top priority. Benn around 6 months since XIII-2 came out and almost a month since the last DLC came out and. If XIII-3

The novel Fragments After, is based on five characters, and only gives some background stories on them. Nothing to do with what happened after the game ended. Each departmant in SE are slpit into more teams and the main people in charge are often involved with 4 to 6 projects at once. SE are very quick to deny rumors on many things, but have never directly said that XIII-3 would not be made. Remember they starated work on XIII-2 in March 2010 and would only give the odd hint about it, till it was annouced at there conference in January 2011. Likely it will be done this way again. Plus if the fanbase is big enough (and it is) and it can turn a profit (which it most likely will) then there is no reason they would not close the story that has been left open and unfinished. A 3rd game would certainly be dark with the Choas, and lets not forget they said they wanted a story where Lightning and her friends end up happy, which is also mentioned in a way near the end of both games. 9First before the final Orphan battle and second when Caius is defeated.) As Lightning said "Keep hope alive."

@alistair6969: Ah now I see what you mean. Your right the DLC didn't cover the whole story, well Light's did bring some closure. The XIII-2 Ultimania Omega will just be like the XIII one; it will include lots of artwork for example. Also the XIII-2 Ultimania Omega will cover all the DLC that's been released. @DarkNOVA21: Now that I see those prices, I can just see how much money I have spent on the DLC for XIII-2.

yes 20 quid for FF13 now but i can tell you at GAME when FF13-3 is out only a matter of time it be late this year but my bet be next year it be out & the price wont be 20 quid. it cost me 80 quid + added DLC so that nearly a 100 quid i bought FF13 at full price & i bought FF13-2 at full price. i was talking about early buyers not online shopping but online is cheaper but you have to wait for deliver it doesn't effect UK play.com you get it a day late with-in 24 hours. anyhow SE was gearing up for Next gen at E3 so who knows FFv13 will end up on next gen i bet ppl will be angry if that true.

Yes i hear that about what he told at TGS about the paradox endings & play DLC for continue the story but out of sazth, Snow & light story DLC it didn't tell us the whole story. light story was the only DLC close enough to bring some kind of closure it answer the question What the that ending main ending. OMG XIII-2 Ultimania Omega.as well what that about? anywhow E3 ends today but fear not i know SE plans they either use SCEE gamescom & wait till TGS to announcer Any FF game because i think the 25th anniversary of FF is in autumn. september time.

@alistair6969: You have a really good point, I spent over fourty pound for both collection editions for XIII and XIII-2. The DLC XIII-2 was also quite a bit of money so fans do have a right for being angry especially if the novels include important information that should already be in the game. But about the TBC; Toriyama explained to TGS attendees that there were two reasons for the ending: first, to encourage players to explore all of the various (non-canon) "Paradox" endings; and second, to extend the story through downloadable content. Also Fragments After gets released on the 21st of June, the same day as the XIII-2 Ultimania Omega.

continue... she hatch a plan to save serah you bet the community won't be very happy so SE had try it's 1st time doing DLC i bet they got loads of cash from it at the expanse of a Half baked story. if you want a full story you need 3 games £40 + £40 + £40 = £120 added DLC more the 120 quid. I will think twice now before i buy any more FF just think will FFv13 do the same or a FF15 do it again like FF13-2 or any FF down the line. so 1 question when is Fragments After novel release date?.

Hmm I don't live novels Full stop why because you buy a dear game 40 quid, 86 quid if you get the collection edition of FF13-2 i do feel really sorry for them this is way i don't folk out that money where FF13 & FF13-2 were alright. it was a half baked story unfinished & incomplete the novel Fragments After i fear that going to bring closure Fragments After is like after the game that you had all 160. so we buy a dear game so we should have a full story especially for forks who paid over 80 quid for it they have the right to be angry. you can bring closure with a cliffhanger if FF13-2 says FF10 ended with a sad ending no TBC there not the ending ppl like so they made FF10-2 what im saying is if FF13-2 has just the, THE END ppl will accept it but would a sequel to explain more with a sugar & raindow ending. but the TBC did the complete opposite split the community down the middle i tell you this if Fragments After does tell how lighting awakes the DLC RoG did told us that and a she hatch a plan.

I would like a XIII-3; to give the XIII storyline a closure and also to answer the many unanswered questions. If we are to get a XIII-3, I imagine it may get announced at the beginning of next year but that is just a guess. @ffkostas I have to agree, the Snow DLC didn’t explain about him becoming a L’Cie again; it was simply a coliseum battle though I did like the opening of the DLC. But what do you mean about his relation with Serah? I mean his relationship with Serah is quite clear after all they were engaged in XIII and in fact still are engaged; they’re just putting their wedding on hold. /Spoiler for those who haven't completed the Snow DLC/ At the end of the Snow DLC, she told Snow that if he took too long or if she got tired of waiting for him, that she would come and get him. @Tanthalas: That's something I'm not so happy about. I don't mind novels to an extent but I would really like them to be translated though I am happy we got Episode i in English with the XIII-2 Pre-Order. The only novels left are Episode Zero, Fragments Before and the upcoming Fragments After.

Unfortunatly that novel covers events that take place just as the game has ended, and only focuses on some characters. And yep will only be out in Japan. but the novel can only fill in so much as the other novels that have been released about XIII and XIII-2, yet nothing was spoiled for the 2nd game. Plus novels are not as popular as games by far, so with no new information about a FF game, except a 3DS musical, it's a given that a final game needs to be made. The material is all there for them to do it, but as it's only 3 weeks since the last DLC has been released and E3 is hear and the London MCM was the other week, it's possible that its still in the planning stage, and hence they have not annouced a XIII-3 yet as they want to have more info to give. XIII-2 tooks many months to fully start production, when the game was annouced 5 or 6 weeks after XIII came out. SE are aware the game was left open intentionally and so was the DLC episodes. They were planning a trilogy otherwise by now they would have said no we are not making a XIII-3. Which they have not done so.

The problem with Snow's story is that they plan to explain it in an upcoming novel that probably will never be officially translated to English.

Also I thought that Snow DLC would not be just another coliseum battle and that would answer some questions about how he became again l'cie and about his relation with Serah. So many questions and not any answers. Please SE tell us what on earth is going on in ffxiii-2? after so many DLC's the story is still incomplete.

By the end of Requiem of a goddess some questions were answered but more were born and left unanswered? What about Caius, Hope, Noel, Snow, Serah, because honestly I can't believe that Serah is dead. Also what about the world of Pulse? What happened? Everything is dead and destroyed? This is the only FF games that left me and many more fan's with so many questions. I have a feeling that the saga of FF xiii and xiii-2 is not finished yet.

The episodes were good and did anwser some of the many questions left at the games main ending, they also left it so open for a final gaem. Its now 3 weeks since it came out and we are still none the wiser if this story will be completed. Third game is definatly need, whilst continued development of Versus 13 is also a top priority. Every FF game has some sort of happy ending, but the game and episodes left things so up in the air, that it still dont fell finished. A simple ye/no with a brief explanation would do, but on the rare interview's with the team behind it, they choose to side step the question. No news from E3 either on this issue :(

books or other media telling the story is a NoNo it probably be alright leading up to FF13-2 light did narrate what happen to her after FF13 but there was still some plotholes books can solve that. but can you think the ANGER by Fanbase if the closure true ending but still sad end the story in book-form & not in a game that "they, us, me pay for. No there be a outrage. on the subject of ppl said they want old FF old school classic back. in a interview TN said he wants a New final fantasy that passes the old final fantasy series. it was about the ff7 remake question again TN also said that new FF & New games come 1st.

Nah, its has nothing to do with my bank. I've looked it up online and many people are getting the same error message that I'm getting. When you add a card to PSN, PSN tests it by charging 0.10£ and then refunding it, and those operations show on my card, its just when I want to add funds to my account that they don't let me. /sigh If this doesn't fixes itself I'll just have to buy one of those PSN cards. Just need to check if the GAME stores over here carry those.

After having another go i still cant help but wonder about the ending. I wont say what happened for those who have not played yet. But does the ending point toward a new final DLC as lighning again or is XIII-3 on its way.Anyone got any thoughts on what it could be? I hope its not like mass effect 3 extended cut DLc because they are changing the ending And i think its great that at least one ff explores the concept of the heroes losing rather than a happily ever after thing

these special requirements in DLC fights are nice indeed it not the only time special requirements are in games FF4-AY has them to in the challenge dungeons 1 is in edge tale special requirement is a speed challenge. porom tale special requirement is she must help enough NPC in a quickest possible time. edward tale is he need to rise enough cash in quickest time possible. so instead of every CD just fighting more powerful monsters to fet to the random last chest. & it is random the 1st time i went though edge CD about ten thoughs i got the treasure hunter item i goof i overwrite it the save but i got the treasure hunter the 1st time CD

i haven't played any snow or light DLC yet snow fight is like light fight useing special terms for fight not like the normal fights these requirements are in light you need 5 stars before the DLC let you move on. snow has a requirement that is, he got a tension on him example tension takes effect when he hits you & your party it rises thats bad also when he stagger it rises more. a commet i read said i use the SEN SEN SEN but snow took us out in hit kill. that because when he tension is max he uses a F-link on you = death so useing sen tanks all 3 is bad so he hits serah his GF soon his mrs he tension rises he hits another it rises again. because the danger of his f-link is it doesn't reset he KO serah but then use it again on a other character. so the plan is finish him quickly & keep his tension low as possible example 1 sen you can have the other can be a com & a rav + COM RAV MED. hmm i wonder what snow said after he 1 hit KO serah butt killed her. "does that feel good" or "Noooo what have i done"

@Luciano To answer your questions 1: like some arena battles i assume you have to win several times before you get her. Its only a theory though as i got her first time. 2: snows power increases the more he focuses on one of you members. To get around this have one paridigm with noel as a sentinel while serah builds the chain guage and then have another one where serah is the sentinel and noel maintains the chain guage. Note that provoke only works after he uses his 200%/300% power attack. Once snow fixes onto a new character he cools down and loses all his buffs. In my opinion debuffs are useless as he can put buffs up just as quickly. Hope this helps mate

The only thing you guys need to know is: To get to the second fight you have to win 5 stars on the first fight (if after the first fight you see the results page then you didn't get 5 stars) If you get 5 stars on the second fight you'll unlock Lightning's Crystal and a secret ending after the credits.

hey you guys let me tell what to do. sorry that it longLightning’s Story: Requiem of the Goddess The battle start out as Lightning fighting Caius Ballad. If this is your first time fighting him like this then i recommend going through the lightning story tutorial. item list: 5 potion, 1 elixir. you start the battle with 4 classes and at lv 1: (number next to skill is lv at unlock) PALADIN(commando,physical and magic) attack0,blitz 6,ruin0,ruinga6, launch0,smite1 and scourge1. SHAMAN(close-range wind ravager, physical, wound) galestrike 0, windstorm 4 and bladestorm 7. MAGE(long-range thunder ravager, magic, wound) thunder 0, thundara 4, thundaga 7. KNIGHT(sentinel, defense) immortality0 when you lv up to certain lv you will unlock these classes and skills: CONJURER(lv3) aura 5 and mighty guard 3(you can not stack both spell) SORCERER(lv6) Chaos 6 (inflick debrave,defaith, deprotect, deshell, curse and daze.) max lv is 10, 10000cp needed for lv i think? lowest lv 0 unlock when you beat second battle and watch ending. Caius Ballad 1st battle: he has 3 class commando, ravager and healer if you have it use aura and chaos first then use PALADIN class to start the stagger and use SHAMAN or MAGE to build it up. switch to knight if you getting attack when he is in ravager, if he is in commando then build up your stagger then switch to knight and use immortality when it does a close up on himself, continue to stagger when he stop attaking. when he in healer use PALADIN and SHAMAN or MAGE class to build up his stagger. when he in critical stagger then just keep on attaking him in PALADIN class, if his life about to end finish it with lightning feral link Legion of One.to get to the second battle chaos bahamut. if you finish it the normal way then the battle end with you getting 100cp with an battle result like 1 star. Chaos Bahamut 2nd battle: use fist battle for more info use knight when he attack, if he use attak skill use immortality. if he uses resist thunder use shaman clas instead. use lightning feral link Legion of One to finish him and get ending. watch ending.
