The Square Enix East meets West debate taking place at the New York Comic Con today has been recorded by Gematsu in it’s entirety. The debate is between FFXIII-2 art director Isamu Kamikokuryo and Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletête. It’s certainly a lengthy and fairly in depth event which may not be for everyone, however, for those of you interested in art direction, it’s worth a watch.
At the end of the debate, both art directors reveal their own take on each others artwork. Isamu shows his version of Adam Jensen from Deus Ex while Jonathan draws Lightning in his own style. Well, part of her at least.

Square Enix has just released the Japanese version of the NYCC Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailers on their Youtube channel, yet instead of being titled “New Adventures”, they call it the “Final Trailer”. With the games release coming in two months, it’s not surprising that there’s little more to show. See both the PS3 and Xbox 360 trailers below with full Japanese voice acting.
IGN have posted a new trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2 from the New York Comic Con. The trailer centres on the conflict with Caius, supposedly immortal and a kind of timeline overseer who has a bone to pick with absolutely everyone. He and his Yeul start getting in everyone’s faces and the whole tone turns antagonistic.
Points to note are Lightning’s avoidance when Serah asks if they’ll ever be together again and Yeul insinuating that Serah’s on her merry way to death if she and Noel continue messing with the timeline. Sounds like Serah might be screwed no matter what, which is great. Unless you like Serah, I mean.

New York’s iteration of Comic Con is right around the corner and Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy XIII-2 with them. As well as the demo being playable at the venue, Square is organising a panel where they’ll be presenting artwork of Final Fantasy XIII-2.
The panel entitled “East Meets West: Art Direction for a Worldwide Audience” is taking place on October 14th and will involved FFXIII-2 art director Isamu Kamikokuryo showing final and concept artwork for the game as well as Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletête showing off some from his game. The panel promises to be an indepth discussion, moderated by videogame consultant and critic, N’Gai Croal.
Square has also told us via Twitter to keep our calendars open on the 14th for new FFXIII-2 news. Only a week to go.
