Earlier this year Square Enix brought the rather controversial Final Fantasy 13 to PC and Steam with a fistful new features, a higher frame rate, and a just enough goodies to keep gamers occupied for a few dozen hours. This drive continues December 11th when Square plans unleashes Final Fantasy 13-2, the direct sequel to Final Fantasy 13, on PC gamers with roughly the same set of features that its predecessor was gifted upon its PC release. These include 60fps support, a Japanese voice track with English subtitles, a resolution options from 720p and up.
13-2‘s story picks up after right after the events of the first game, with Serah, the younger sister of Lightning Ferron, going off to search for her sister on a journey that takes her from into the far future and beyond as she bears witness to the events that might mean the end of the universe as she knows it. Joining her on this epic quest is Noel, a young hunter from a grim future where the land lays dead and devoid of life. Together they must find out just what happened to Lightning and what her disappearance means for the tangled timestream that plagues the world around them.
Those who preorder 13-2 through either Steam or the Square Enix shop will also get a 10% discount off the final cost of the game. Fans of the series can also expect the PC release of Lightning Returns, the final game in the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy, sometime next year. Lightning Returns earned mixed reviews from both critics and the public, so it will be interesting to see how the game fares among the PC gaming community.
