So like many of you, I too thought there’d be no Final Fantasy X-3. And hey, maybe there won’t be. However, we have a rumor they might consider Final Fantasy X-3. Well, as long as there’s fan demand. When’s the last time Square Enix fell through on a rumor like that?
But I used to have a reason for why Final Fantasy X wouldn’t get another game in the series. It had to deal with their narration.
The game is punctuated by a narration of Yuna addressing Tidus, as though she is recounting the game’s events to him as they occur in a style reminiscent of Tidus’s narration in Final Fantasy X.
So then, have you wondered to whom Tidus was narrating his story? Was it to Yuna? But then, that wouldn’t make sense, right? Why would he narrate the events of a story that Yuna took place in?
Since they’re lovers, they were probably recounting the most intimate details of the story, including their feelings, to each other. Plus, Yuna doesn’t know certain parts of the story from Tidus’ perspective, such as before he arrived in Spira.
This would mean that Tidus is narrating the events of Final Fantasy X to Yuna. And Yuna is narrating the events of Final Fantasy X-2 to Tidus. But then would all this take place before the events of Final Fantasy X-3?
They probably got sick of each other telling the same story to each other (due to us replaying the game) and decided to end their relationship.
But then, this breaks up the flow of the story. The usually upbeat Tidus tells Yuna his version of the remorse pilgrimage. The usually serious, now cheerful, Yuna tells Tidus her version of what happened one he disappeared. And it all takes place on the island I guess.
This is the perfect duality. A third game in the series might wreck it.
I would love to see what they would come up within the next title, but as for the story
