Official PlayStation Magazine Australia sat down with two Square Enix heavy-hitters, Yoshinori Kitase and Shinji Hashimoto, to discuss what’s up with the 13th Final Fantasy. Kitase gave an update on the development progress stating that several aspects of Final Fantasy XIIIare now nearly done. “The scenario is pretty much complete and the artistic side is about 80% complete,” said Kitase. While that’s a lot of work already through the fire, there’s still a few things left to do and don’t forget the good old spit-shine polish.
Being a PlayStation mag, the publication also naturally asked the duo how the shift to a multiplatform release would affect FFXIII’squality. Kitase was quick to reiterate what Yoichi Wada had been saying since E3: “…the team is looking to specialize it for the Playstation 3 so that the game will be maximized for that given artechiture. Once that’s complete, then will they start considering porting it over to other consoles.
