Final Fantasy XIII-2 Books Announced

Much like with Final Fantasy XIII and its “Episode Zero -Promise-” and “-Episode i-” novella counterparts, Square Enix has announced two new books for Final Fantasy XIII-2.

The first will be a post card book, and will contain CG illustrations of the main characters of the game, such as Serah, Noel, Snow, and Lightning, and an eight page character introduction. It will also come with a collection of 24 post cards.

The second and more important book that will be released will be titled “Final Fantasy XIII-2: Fragments Before”, and will focus on the events that took place before those in the game itself. It will also be written by Jun Eishima, the author of the Final Fantasy XIII novellas. This novel will again focus on the different stories of the main characters and will, interestingly enough, also include Rygdea and Bartholomew Estheim from Final Fantasy XIII. Below is a list of the different chapters for each character, as stated in the Nova Crystallis blog post:

Serah: Memories of the year AF0.
New Bodhum: A story of the year AF3.
Snow: The story of his departure.
Rygdea & Bartholomew: The creation of a provisional government, and the secret history of the founding of the Academy.
Noel: The end of the world, a period of uncertainty.

Both books will be available on December 31st, the day Final Fantasy XIII-2 is released in Japan.

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.

Click through to see the three part video of the debate.


Ali Hillis has confirmed today via Facebook that she has finished recording all of her dialogue for Final Fantasy XIII-2.

As we all know, Ali Hillis voices Lightning, one of the main characters of the Final Fantasy XIII series. I can only imagine that if all of her lines are done already, the game is right on schedule for its January 2012 release date.

Thanks to forum member totlmstr for pointing this out.

Some new Final Fantasy XIII-2 information has been released in the latest issue of Jump today, including a couple of fairly small but important story points. Here they are thanks to Kagari on Neogaf:

Noel is from the future where he’s the last surviving human of his time.
Lightning is a knight for the goddess Etro who’s tasked with protecting her temple in Valhalla.

There is now a scan for the above information, showing a new render for Lightning.

Square Enix showed the press a separate demo to what’s available on the show floor which includes the fight between Lightning and the newly revealed Chaos Bahamut. The battle with her riding her summon Odin, makes use of several of the new gameplay features revealed in interviews. When Famitsu asked whether this was the same Bahamut as Fang’s summon from FFXIII, they were told it was not. Watch the footage below.

Lightning’s House That Never Was

During the development of Final Fantasy XIII, some cuts had to be made. One of them unfortunately was Lightning’s very own home which, although appeared in a cutscene, was supposed to be navigable by the player during gameplay. Square-Enix claims that it was removed due to “storage issues” but the artwork has survived showing the full inside and out layout. I somehow doubt it will make it into XIII-2 unfortunately.

A new screenshot has been released of Lightning’s debut appearance on the PSP in Dissidia 012 [duodecim]. This time it’s an in-engine screenshot of her look as happy as ever. There isn’t any visible changes to her look – unlike other Final Fantasy characters featured – except a slightly more “chibified” face.

Many people were disappointed that Square left their newest heroine out of the incredibly successful Final Fantasy fighter, Dissidia, released last year but their prayers have been answered today with a sequel announced and Lightning confirmed as playable.

Unfortunately titled “Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy”, this new game is set to be released next year. So far, there aren’t any details about Lightning’s appearence in the game but news will begin rolling in when scans become available.
