A New Adventure Awaits: Final Fantasy X-3 Story in the Works

For fans of the beloved Final Fantasy X series, the possibility of a third installment has been a topic of much speculation. Well, the wait may finally be over. Director Tetsuya Nomura has confirmed that a concept for Final Fantasy X-3 is in motion, with the story already written. However, fans will need to be patient, as the focus is currently on the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

In a recent interview with Famitsu, a renowned Japanese gaming magazine, Nomura revealed that a synopsis for Final Fantasy X-3 has been penned by the writer of Final Fantasy X, Kazushige Nojima. While the project is currently on hold, the fact that the plot exists is certainly exciting news for fans who long to continue their journey in the world of Spira.

Nomura did mention that the chances of returning to Spira are not zero, but Square Enix’s priority lies with the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. With the second part of the remake still shrouded in mystery and the number of entries in the series unknown, it could be quite some time before any concrete details about Final Fantasy X-3 emerge. Nonetheless, the knowledge that a story is in place and the desire to revisit this narrative should bring hope to all X series enthusiasts.

Speaking of Final Fantasy X and its sequel, the HD remaster of these games received high praise from critics. Game Informer scored it a remarkable 9 out of 10, with our own reviewer, Kimberly Wallace, expressing admiration for the adventure.
