If obvious hints in the Ultimania Omega weren’t enough, Toriyama has some more to say on the subject of a XIII story continuation.
Famitsu.com caught up with Toriyama at the recent Game Developers Conference in Taipei. Of course, considering his presentation focused on XIII, the site was keen to ask him if anything Final Fantasy XIII related would show up at the upcoming 25th Anniversary event in August.
“The [FFXIII-2] Lightning download content had an ending that left a feeling mystery and hope. The day when the meaning of this will come to light is not too far off,” said Toriyama.
On the subject of DLC, Toriyama has seen that some fans have an issue with having to buy content that’s not available on disc. Having heard opinions of fans all over the world, he’s found that many want the content to be already available on the disc. Toriyama says that this causes a problem as development times will go up.
Toriyama also made comment on Final Fantasy X HD as well as Square’s new Luminous Engine. Regarding X, he said “Regarding HD conversions, there is a lot to look into, so please wait a bit more.” For Luminous, of course he’s looking forward to it. He said, “While still at the technology development stage, we’re currently moving to the phase where where we come together with our game development teams and prepare for next generation machines.”
