Final Fantasy X-3 Plot Outline Exists, Possibility of it Happening is 'Not Zero', Square Enix Confirms

Despite Final Fantasy X-2 being 18 years old, Square Enix has hinted that a sequel could one day see the light of day, whisking players back to the realm of Spira for more exploits from Tidus, Yuna, Wakka, and the rest of the gang. A Final Fantasy X-3 plot outline already exists, according to Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura.

Charater designer on Final Fantasy X, Nomura revealed to RPGSite that the chances of there being a Final Fantasy X-3 are entirely feasible. Indeed a full synopsis has been penned by Final Fantasy X and X-2 writer Kazushige Nojima, according to Nomura speaking in an interview Famitsu magazine, reported on several Japanese blogs.

“If we are to make X-3, we somehow have a synopsis written by Nojima-san," Nomura commented. “It’s sleeping right now, but the plot itself does exist.” Final Fantasy X writer and designer Motomu Toriyama weighed in with his own comments on the possibility of Final Fantasy X-3, which if it were to happen, would be after Final Fantasy VII Remake has been finished.

“The probability is not zero,” said Toriyama. “But we are not in a phase where we can talk about it, unless we have finished producing Final Fantasy VII Remake.” With part two of Final Fantasy VII Remake seemingly some way off yet, and subsequent parts also planned (none of which have been confirmed for Xbox just yet), it looks like we'll be waiting for an incredibly long time.

For the time being, then, you can while away some of that time in the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for Xbox One, currently available to play via Xbox Game Pass.

  • Curious if the outline contains anything from the FFX -Will- audio drama. Other than that I’d be excited to play X-3
  • Most people I know didn't like X-2. I did..
  • The gameplay would have a lot more action like FFXV since thats the only type of combat SQEX can do now.
  • I played both FFX and FFX-2. I like FFX a lot more, but I don't hate X-2. One thing however, is that I heard there is some official continuation saying that Tidus & Yuna break up eventually, and I have strong reservations about this direction. I wonder what X-3 will be like.
