Basically the connection between the three stories is that they all take place within the same universe. They all follow the same lore, regarding Etro, Pulse, and Bhunivelze, the gods, and then the Fal'Cie and L'Cie.

While they take different forms and names between the cultures seen in the three games, they are almost identical. The Lightning Saga and Type-0 both use the term L'Cie directly, and in Type-0 they are mainly used as weapons of the nations military forces.

I believe that Noctis and Stella are L'Cie, though the name does not exist in their setting, and they speak of it as "Seeing the Light from the World of the Dead". It's very similar in concept in that it granted the two of them extrodinary powers, and similar to Type-0 they did summon magical symbols upon activating their powers in one old CG trailer. There's also a focus on Etro in XV, who is the "God of the Dead" in XV and Type-0, and known as a Guardian in The Lightning Saga.


So yeah, there's some lore for you.

Changing the name makes sense. This looks like a very western friendly game. XIII isn't popular here, at all. Not sure how it ranks in Japan or worldwide. Anyways, by changing the name they get kind of a "fresh" slate on the game without the XIII title hanging over it.

Finally a FF that does not look an awful lot like a JRPG!

Kudos to the FFXV (versus XIII) team!

I don't know if this was just a poor execution of a plan that worked out in the end, or a cleverly deceptive, masterful plot on part of SE to intentionally skip the PS3 generation and produce this game for the PS4 and woe crowds with spectacular, real-time graphics.

I'm imagining the faces of the people who bought their PS3s for Versus and KH3.
