When Final Fantasy XV was finally and officially unveiled at E3 2013, one of the many reactions was the abandonment of the original title of Final Fantasy Versus XIII meant that the game was moving away from XIII‘s mythology. This is apparently not the case.
Despite the name change and subsequent drop of XIII from the title, Final Fantasy XV is, “linked and underpinned by the backdrop of that legend,” Series Producer Yoshinori Kitase told Videogamer, “The story and the world is still going to be linked and backed up by that. So yes, there is the link between XIII and XV, and they both share that mythology as a backdrop and a starting point.”
Final Fantasy XV will be published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
