Siliconera has reported additional details about Final Fantasy XIII-2, which can be found in the upcoming issue of Famitsu. As we all know, the game sounds pretty awesome from what Square Enix has released thus far, but these new pieces of information have definitely made me more excited about the game.
The article states that Serah and Noel will be able to ride chocobos, which we already knew; however, this will only be possible by using something called a “gysahl green”. These items can be purchased from Chocolina, who is a time traveling merchant who sells a wide variety of goods and weapons. It then goes on to elaborate that a red chocobo will be present in the game, and that this creature in particular will be a nuisance. However, players can make him go away by throwing a gysahl green, and this strange chocobo may potentially have a backstory.
Siliconera then goes on to report that the weather will change within various locations, such as Archylte Steppe (this in particular will have four types of weather: fine weather, sandstorm, thunderstorm, and another mystery condition). Music and the types of monsters within the area will change as the weather does.
Finally, the game will feature dialogue choices called “Live Trigger Events”. Players will be able to select a conversational option based on which of the four buttons (square, triangle, circle, and X on the PS3, and Y, X, A, B on the Xbox 360) they select. This is what I find the most interesting; it’ll be cool to see where Square Enix takes this feature within Final Fantasy XIII-2.
Thanks to Musou for the info!
