Ok so I just started getting into this game and am only about 8 hours in but I'm in love with this game. The character design is a little less than what I'd call ideal but this is the game I wanted Final Fantasy XIII to be. Is there any news on a future for this series? I couldn't find anything. But the music, combat, story, and even the comedy are very well done. I'm even ok with the kid party members. And I never thought I'd say that aout kids in an RPG with older characters.
