The upcoming multiplatform title, “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII,” will be the third game in the “Final Fantasy XIII” series. So how come the game isn’t called “Final Fantasy XIII-3” in a similar manner to “Final Fantasy XIII-2?” In an interview with 4Gamer on Sunday (translated by Final Fantasy Network), Yoshinori Kitase offered an interesting explanation. You can check out some of the comments from the producer at Square Enix below (via Final Fantasy Network)

When asked why Lightning Returns wasn’t called “Final Fantasy XIII-3″ as it is the end of a trilogy, the team felt this entry was unique enough to warrant a different name — as calling it XIII-3 might give the impression that it would be a direct evolution of Final Fantasy XIII-2. The game is a “new experience” in layman’s terms, as Yoshinori Kitase put it.

“Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” will mark the end of the Lightning Saga storyline that first started in “Final Fantasy XIII” and then continued with “Final Fantasy XIII-2.” The action role-playing game will feature Lightning as a main playable character. Square Enix 1st Production Department is responsible for the development of the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 project while Square Enix will be publishing the title when it launches sometime in 2013. You can pre-order the game in the following link: “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII”
