Square Enix’s line of Ultimania guides continues still with the Scenario and Battle Ultimania books being released on the 31st of January.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 Scenario Ultimania will cost 1575 yen (~20 USD) and consists of 512 pages. Final Fantasy XIII-2 Battle Ultimania is slightly more expensive, at 1785 yen (~22 USD) with a bulkier 704 pages. Both books are A5 size.
Motomu Toriyama, the game’s director, announced the game’s completion in his interview with weekly Famitsu.
Here are some points of the details that he has also shared regarding the game’s features and content.
The main story can be completed in 30-40 hours and is divided into chapters, with each chapter taking about 2-3 hours. Replay value is determined by the time rewind system which resets an area to its starting point. Starting a save file after finishing the game will bring you to the Historia Crux just before the final battle. This serves as the game’s “New Game Plus” as you can go into different areas, resetting and playing through them again while retaining your characters’ current levels. This feature results to the availability of multiple “Paradox” endings.
Toriyama has again confirmed the bonus(es) for people who have XIII’s save file, not stating what it really is. Aside from this, a wallpaper will also be available for those who have XIII’s save file.
