Avatar=Final Fantasy XIII? Square Enix Seem Concerned

Square Enix’s director of Final Fantasy XIII, Motomu Toriyama has voiced his view that James Cameron's recent blockbuster movie, Avatar looks a lot like the studio's upcoming RPG epic:
"The in-game universe this time around is quite fantasy based, but also futuristic at the same time. We never really had any particular reference points for Final Fantasy XIII, in terms of places where we drew inspiration from. That said, we're a little suspicious that the world famous Avatar movie might have take inspiration from us!"
It is debatable who created what first but much like game releases we play games that feel like others we have played in the past. Nothing is truly original after all and sometimes being inspired by something else can be a good thing when creating something new.
