    Each new numbered final fantasy game takes place in a parallel world.

    Excellent question. The Final Fantasy series is actually an “anthology” - a series of stories that are linked together by particular elements, but taking place in different worlds with different characters. A common misconception is that the Final Fantasy games are all sequels, but they aren’t. For example, Final Fantasy VII has sequels, but the sequel is not Final Fantasy VIII. The sequels for Final Fantasy VII are the movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII. Another good example is Final Fantasy XII, which got its own sequel, but the sequel was not Final Fantasy XIII, which has its own universe and its own set of sequels, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Meanwhile, XII’s sequel was one for the Nintendo DS called Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings.

    Parallel worlds, or else that world would be an absolute clusterfuck.

  • Generally, no.  Each main installment of Final Fantasy takes place in a separate universe with varying degrees of common elements (ex. magic, Chocobos, Moogles, etc.).  Sequels (ex. Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XIII-2) obviously take place in the same universe.

    Excluding the direct sequels, each Final Fantasy game is considered a self-contained stories with their own worlds / universes.  They may have similar characters appear between games (Cid tends to be a reoccurring character for the series), but that's about it.

    All of the main games are set in their own separate worlds. Some elements are consistent in every game, but otherwise they are independent of each other. 

    Some of the main games (IV, VII, X, XIII, XV) do get sequels, spin-offs, and tie-in films that are set in their respective games' worlds.

    I haven’t played them but from what I heard some of them take place in the same universe and some do not.
