News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

Someone managed to take a picture in the Closed Mega Theater. This looks real if we compare it to earlier fan art of him.

The Machine City Cocoon
Date: December 16th, 2006 Author: Kitmitsu
News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

Good night, good morning, it’s three o’clock, I’m up all night doing homework and the first news from Jump Festa ticks in.

Now, this is an online translation so as always, don’t trust me on this one. Unlike the other translations I will try to make sense this time.
(And I’m not even native english >-<)

Image contents of FFXIII is shown on screen at the closed Mega theatre. (Oh no, it’s closed theatre again >-<)

The enormous machine city Kokun floats up in the far sky. (Check out the video below)
Peace is protected by the crystal in this world and for the people in the outside world (lower bound world) from the 0 intruders (Zero? Monsters?). They feared their existence.
But one day the 0 invades.
The saintly prefecture (The ones who let the intruders come in) decides to force immigration to the lower bound.
The immigration is harsh. (the rest of the sentence gives no meaning in translation)
The crystal reaches a point where the human in charge of it is chosen.
The person who was chosen by the crystal ruins the mankind.
She was simply identified as ‘The Lightning’lockquote>So there you have it, our gravity controlling lady has been chosen by the crystal and is know by codename ‘Lightning’. We got a semi-confirmed name. You can now call her Lightning.

We got an old image from TGS with a monster. It could be a 0.

There is more, but it makes no sense. It is the Japanese article with it own theories so it’s all questions. I try to translate it anyway.

Be wrapped in the water, the summoned animal of the body is like a machine?
It is the tsupo and 2 enormous women are aerial.
The lightning and the liberal expression can thrust the gun when surround by soldiers?
The youth of the fair-hair which rode of image the motorcycle was present last! (New character?)

New Play UK and OPM UK Scans

News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

I’ve scanned in some articles from the new issues of Official Playstation Magazine and Play UK featuring FFXIII. Once again, just another analysis of TGS this year a few months late (everythings late for us).

Play UK Scan 1

They feature the new screenshots from TGS and a few details we’ve already reported. Very little on Versus and Agito but they mention the registration of the name Final Fantasy Haeresis XIII by Square-Enix on 1st May which we hope we hear something about at Jump Festa but it doesnt appear on the list featured below. Lets hope they surprise us.

FFXIII Playstation 3 TV Spot

News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

The Playstation 3 launched in Japan today and a new commercial aired with it. FFXIII has been featured in one of the TV spots for the launch.

A little too early for it to be advertised with launch titles I think but still cool to see it being mentioned.

After a fast online translation we can say that there are no new images and no new information. Treat everything I write as unconfirmed since the translation mess it up.>

Mr.Toriyama talks about the evolution from PS2 to PS3 and compare it to the PSX to PS2 upgrade. He tells us how the PSX lacks the expressions in faces and how hard it was to create that in the first Final Fantasy for PS2. It’s the same challenge to create the new white engine for PS3.

He says some words about the theme in Final Fantasy XIII, but I’m hardly the right man to translate that. You can come to a conclusion yourself.

As for theme of the story of FF13 when “determination” and many degrees face the desperate scene the protagonist where faces truth resistance, and determination to trouble and the circumstance, this the story of FF13 the principal axis.lockquote>Source: FF&KH Blog

New Play US Scan

News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

Well we had a little trouble with our news and we lost a few of our older articles. Unfortunately theres no way to recover them as we had no backup but we’ll try and make sure we don’t have the same problem in the future.

However I’ve scanned in a new article from Play US magazine. Same old summary of TGS explaining what a dissapointment it was. It also talks about some of the other titles Square had at TGS aswell. At least we have Jump Festa to wait for now!

Sculpture of “Heroine”
Date: October 31st, 2006 Author: Kitmitsu
News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

Square have brought us a collection of Final Fantasy sculptures; one of them being our new favourite game character. Not painted up to date, probably since her equipment could have a makeover in the future. Square-Enix don’t want to confirm any name on her yet, as you can see that she is still named “heroine” on the description.

Another fun thing I saw at the TGS, was one of the cosplayers had dressed up as our “heroine”. This is from Gamespot Live at TGS, part three. I downloaded a pack with 1600 images of booth babes and cosplayers to find her ^^, but sadly, she was not there. So you have to be thankful for a frame capture of her.

Update: Some real shots too now. And we can see that the other one is our guy from Versus.

Summary of updated E3 FFXIII trailer
Date: October 31st, 2006 Author: Kitmitsu
News Category: Final Fantasy XIII

Behind the evil closed curtains, all the good stuff is hidden from the audience. Square-Enix has played a FFXIII video for the press. The video is an extended and updated version of the one in E3 2006. Pray for it to come to public.>

In the previous trailer, though, her enemies were exclusively human; now, she’s shown fighting against a number of monsters, as well.
Afterwards, a bit of footage appears where the woman directly engages another large monster, which somewhat resembles the Ifrit summon from Final Fantasy X, but in a bit of a blueish hue.

A new Game master scan has become available. They talk about the amazing similarities between Realtime play and CG FMVs. They give it their love and hate verdict with a rating of 5 and this description which i’ll type out here as its pretty hard to read:

“Seriously, can a game look anymore stunning? And this is just the beginning. We might have to wait a couple of years but you just know it’ll rock.”
