The sales are falling because nobody wants more XIII games, so they create another XIII game?
Yeah, clearly reaching over 3 million world wide sales means nobody wants it /sarcasm
You do realise very few games so much as crack a million sales, right?
And there are very few games that carry a name as big as Final Fantasy.
So that means that literally every game with the name "Final Fantasy" in it has to achieve blockbuster sales to be a sucess?
It's a sequel, and the fact people run around acting like it "killed Final Fantasy" and other such criticism when figures show that roughly one out of every two people to play the original came back for the sequel is pretty silly.
If you don't like the XIII saga then ffs stop posting on XIII boards. Go post on the boards of games you are actually interested in and leave this board for the people interested in this game. --- Official Piplup of the Pokemon X board.
“With Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, we wanted to focus on giving it a brand-new feel. It’s a brand-new game that you can jump into regardless of knowing and being familiar with the prior two stories within those installments,” Kitase said. “This whole effort to give this game a brand new feel shows very well in our logo design. It’s a completely different approach this time. We have not used the traditional font or the art by Yoshitaka Amano because we wanted to convey to our audience that this is a new game that we’re bringing to the table.”
What. So it isn't really a sequel but a XIII-2-2 of a XIII-2? Well, s***. --- --"F*** the JRPG Cliche Hate. I felt like a badass saving the world for the first time, I still feel like a badass doing it for the hundredth time."
