LR won't have multiple endings - Toriyama

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 will have one, final concrete ending, according to director Motomu Toriyama.

Speaking with VG247, Toriyama said unlike Final Fantasy 13-2, there won’t be multiple endings possible.

“The concept behind the design of Lighting Returns is that it will be the concluding chapter of the Lightning Saga,” said Toriyama. “Unlike in the previous title, there will not be multiple possible endings created from differently branching interpretations of history, but instead the story will lead to the one true ending.

“Having said that, the game is structured so that time is constantly ticking away during gameplay and the world moving and changing with it, meaning that every time you play through you can have a new experience.”

Dave’s full interview with Toriyama will go live on Tuesday, February 19.

A game that depends on NG+ with one ending? Fun.

Absolutely. Can't remember if this was already covered in previous interview or not, though.

If its something like Tales of Symphonia's easy and hard path... going to Luin first is the hard path I think instead of following the story path. I wouldn't mind something like that in LR if its not too predictable.

I think having a different gameplay experience every time is better than a few joke endings.

I think you thinking you will have different gameplay experience each time is adorable.

What's worse, we were already told the ending by Mr. T.

In the end, Bhuni will create a new world as Novus Partus ends. And Lightning will guide everyone's souls to the new world.


Sure there will be some twists, but I wish they hadn't told us how the game will end.

I hope he means there is one large true ending, with multiple parts, and you can see more and more parts the more you do.

That's wrong, it won't end like that, not if that matricidal bastard who drives his own daughter to suicide gets what he wants.
