Square Enix updated the official Final Fantasy XIII-2 website during the first day of PAX with a complete overhaul of the layout and a few new details on the story. As Serah’s fiance in the first game, many people have questioned why Snow hasn’t made an appearance, or even been mentioned in any trailers or news. The updated Story section reveals all:
Three years after the events in FINAL FANTASY XIII, Lightning has gone missing, and Snow is nowhere to be found. In a rebuilding world, Serah notices that something is amiss. After a fortuitous encounter with a mysterious man named Noel, the two set off to find Lightning.
Hopefully more will be revealed during the coming days.
With a chance at being lost amongst the flurry of E3 news for Final Fantasy XIII-2, Square Enix sneakily updated the official website for Final Fantasy Type-0.
New renders for Sice and King were added and brawler Eight makes his debut under the Characters Class Zero section. Under Subcharacters, Square Enix have added Arecia and Gilgamesh. Those three new additions all have voice samples to go with them. The System section has additions for Kill Sight and Special Orders, two previously detailed features. Along with that are Battle Style entries for King, Sice and Eight.
Finally, a new wallpaper featuring King, Sice and Eight is available under Special in various sizes (click on that funny writing that looks like ダウンロード if you’re interested on downloading it).
Each of the Final Fantasy XIII-2 official sites have been updated soon after the E3 trailer release include a small amount of new content. Each of the sites contain a new render (which we’ve ripped) and a small description of the new character Noel Kreiss. He dual-wields swords with an expert technique and can combine them into one, forming a new weapon. No one knows much of his past or how he stumbled upon Serah during her time of distress.
The Japanese site also features new background music from the game as well as a new wallpaper and their rendition of the trailer. Although oddly still voiced in English (but subtitled) it shows a release date of December 2011. A simultaneous worldwide release seems to be out of the question.
After being nothing more than a teaser for the past several months, the full version of Type-0′s site has been launched giving us a preview of the game’s Battle System and Soundtrack. The ‘Characters’ section gives us another look at Ace, Queen, Nine, and Kurasame (all of which have been revealed in the past). More importantly, the previous section and ‘Prologue’ gives us a batch of screenshots showing us the detailed characters and areas of the game.
