The Final Fantasy first considered developing a concept for Final Fantasy XIII-3 when Square Enix registered the domain name for it on September 7, 2011. The company claimed this action was not indicative of a new title, however, thus The Final Fantasy, greatly inspired by all aspects of the Final Fantasy XIII games, decided to try developing Final Fantasy XIII-3 for himself. Work on The Final Fantasy's Final Fantasy XIII-3 project officially began on December 16, 2011, after The Final Fantasy saw an entire Japanese playthrough of the recently-released Final Fantasy XIII-2 and witnessed the game's shocking cliffhanger ending.
