No doubt you've heard of the Final Fantasy XIII announcement made today during Square Enix's press conference. Though revealed exclusively for the PS3, it seems the company has a lot more in store for the next entry in the immensely popular RPG franchise.
To celebrate the 13th title in the world-renowned Final Fantasy series, Square Enix has undertaken a colossal project involving the development of various content for multiple platforms, called FABULA NOVA CRYSTALLIS ("the new tale of the crystal").
