Final Fantasy 13’s name turned out to be surprisingly prophetic, at least for director Hajime Tabata. When the final piece of downloadable content for Final Fantasy 15 arrives next summer, it will hit almost exactly 13 years after the game’s original announcement.

The four upcoming character-focused pieces of DLC for FF15 will tie a bow on the game, and thus the entire Final Fantasy 13-centric Fabula Nova Crystallis project, once and for all. And just in time: Tabata has other responsibilities to occupy himself with now. Earlier this year, Square … [Read more...] about Hajime Tabata on Final Fantasy 15’s finale and what comes next
