Square’s FFXIII’s creator, Motomu Toriyama, has stated in an interview that the legendary developers took inspiration from other games.

During a recent interview with Eurogamer, FFXIII’s creator, Motomu Toriyama, spoke about some of the games which contributed to the inspiration of RPG epic Final Fantasy XIII.

We did actually take a look at games like BioWare’s, and Fallout as well. But rather than that, we took more inspiration from FPS games like Call of Duty and Halo. Those games seems to present a very real-time, tense atmosphere on the battlefield where the player gets involved in the fighting. That’s the kind of thing that we looked at more intensely.

Some new amazing screenshots of the PS3 version of the RPG surfaced recently. Final Fantasy XIII is penciled for a Western blockbuster release on March 9, 2010.
