Behind the story of FINAL FANTASY XIII lies an all-encompassing crystal mythology. This crystal mythos tells the tale of a multitude of deities that exist not only in the world of FFXIII, but will also appear in the background of other titles planned for the series.
The saga of FFXIII touches upon just one small part of this overarching mythology. In this session, Motomu Toriyama, director and scenario writer, will explain the various processes involved in crafting the crystal mythos, creating the world of FFXIII, character design, and the development of drama between those characters. He will also speak on the direction he hopes to take in future projects.
