Final Fantasy XIII-2 Shorter Than Final Fantasy XIII

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Shorter Than Final Fantasy XIII

Written by Darryl — 23 Nov 2011

While taking some time to talk about Final Fantasy XIII-2's New Game Plus feature, Square Enix revealed that they expect gamers to take between 30-40 hours to complete the sequel.

Anyone who's played Final Fantasy XIII will note that this is a shorter time than the original, but Square Enix will surely feel that this is justified given Final Fantasy XIII-2's post-game content.

With the Historia Crux system in place, and Square Enix's improved focus on side-quests and multiple endings this time around, here's hoping that the overall experience will be one that takes considerably longer to complete.
