Thanks to PvMPlug for the inspiration!
For as long as 2013, rumours have been circulating about a new possible Final Fantasy X-3 game.
Final Fantasy X-2 brings back Tidus, and Final Fantasy X – Will brings back Sin. Tidus’ sacrifice became null in more than one way.
So then, what would you like to see in a new Final Fantasy X game? Would you like to see a journey serving as a prequel to FFX, telling Braska’s tale? I see the Summoner, Warrior and Blitzballer (Monk) combo happening.
I hear that Rikku might be the protagonist of Final Fantasy X-3, and that she’ll be looking for Yuna. Would you like to see a journey serving as a sequel, telling Rikku’s search for Yuna? Maybe in a special twist, Rikku will travel back into time 1000 years into the past, feel out of place and follow the journey of Shuyin and Leanne. And due to some time paradox Sin comes through Zanarkand and they have to fight him all over again. No sarcasm, this is something I think Final Fantasy X would totally do.
What would you like to see, and what are the details surrounding new Final Fantasy X game? And how do you feel about a new Final Fantasy X game? Perhaps the majority of Final Fantasy X-3 will happen through flashbacks at the very least. Just don’t de-canonizes Final Fantasy X-2, that would throw off the whole Final Fantasy X saga. Knowing Final Fantasy, they’d probably add on another non-sequitur with the inevitable sequel.
If Final Fantasy X-3 is on Square Enix’s to do list, will they rehash the story, the characters? All or none of the above? Will it be a proper sequel? It does seem like it contains more drama, and finality. But I think Final Fantasy X-3 would be the new Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. More in the way that Final Fantasy X-3 could build and clarify the Final Fantasy X-2. Perhaps in the way that Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII clarified Final Fantasy XIII-2. Perhaps the series could neatly wrap itself up.
But if they can get creative with the sequel, I guess I’m all on board for it.
