The Final Fantasy XIII series continues with three planned side novels By Erren Van Duine on June 10, 2014 at 11:27 AM

The bit of information teased in Famitsu prior was never a game, but is instead a trio of consecutive novels heading to Japan some time in the future, the magazine has confirmed today. We’ve no real details at the moment, but Famitsu promises full coverage on this cross-media project in their issue due out next week.

    My “EEeeeeeppp! !!!!” meter has broken out of excitement! I can not wait for those novels!! Better start to put in extra hours of Japanese studies in addition to the usual; I want to be able to read those fluently! If only now we had a movie to complement the novels…

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

  • Ehren Rivers

    If I find a fan translation after they come out, I’ll link people to it here. Don’t expect a localization, though, as Square Enix basically already said they don’t care to release novels outside of Japan.

    10 years from now Final Fantasy XIII is still going stronger with the new Ultra Lightning Speed edition for PS5

  • Somber

    Good! Please fix the ending!

  • Storm

    if they go for the original idea, the novels will tell what happened to the characters during the 500 years of Nova Chrysalia, but I hope they’ll give us a glimpse of their life in the new world.

    “Final Fantasy XIII: Reminiscence is an upcoming novella set after the events of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It is apparently split into three parts: Tracer of Memories, Recollection, and Tracker of Memories”

    Final Fantasy 13 while good, is nowhere near as good as Final Fantasy 15 or 7 so I have some issue with this. I’d like novels coming out of Final Fantasy XV for sure!
