Ah, the game’s release is just around the corner! Well, in Japan but anyways Square Enix released 2 new commercials for the PS3 and Xbox showing a few new scenes (spoilers are present, of course), gameplay, and, well, just go on and watch both of them below!

The two new Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailers that were recently shown at the Tokyo Game Show have surfaced online and in English to boot.

PS3 Version

Xbox 360 Version

Oddly, these trailers feature the English dub and theme song over the original Japanese trailers, no reason for this can be seen exactly other than it might have been a quicker way for Square to get the trailers released in English.

Thanks to forum member Briar Rose for alerting this to us.


Final Fantasy XIII-2 TGS PS3 Trailer Leaked Early

Square isn’t having much luck with two of the latest Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailers managing to leak early. The TGS trailer due for release during the Final Fantasy XIII-2 Special today was released accidentally on the official Playstation Tokyo Game Show website earlier today but was swiftly removed. Of course, it was ripped just in time.

See the brand new trailer below to see possibly the best FFXIII-2 trailer yet, featuring the new theme song and wait…who was that?

The 2011 Tokyo Game Show is well underway in Japan and as such, news is pouring out from various sources.

First and foremost, the release date for Final Fantasy XIII-2 has been announced and not only for Japan. North America and Europe’s release dates have all been announced as well.

Japanese gamers will first get their hands on XIII-2 on December 15th while North American’s will get it a little more than a month later on January 31st. Europeans as usual will have to wait a little longer, but fear not, as it’s a measly 3 days, February 3rd.

Square has also gone ahead and announced a special hardware bundle featuring a Lightning adorned PS3.

Naturally they are calling this the “PlayStation 3 Final Fantasy XIII-2 Lightning Edition Ver.2.” given that a Lightning adorned PS3 was also released for the first game’s launch back in 2009. This bundle will retail for ¥37,960 and is a 320 GB unit.

As well as all the Final Fantasy XIII-2 details featured in Dengeki’s feature today, Toriyama has also confirmed that “Easy Mode” will be coming to Final Fantasy XIII for Playstation 3.

Easy Mode was one of the features added to the Japanese Xbox 360 release of FFXIII known as Final Fantasy XIII Ultimate Hits International. Toriyama says that a patch will be released for the PS3 version which will add this feature. The patch will be released in Japan on 21st July to coincide with the Ultimate Hits PS3 version release. He doesn’t mention whether the patch or budget version of the game will see an international release.

There’s been enough debate among fans whether some of the footage in yesterdays Final Fantasy Versus XIII TGS trailer is real-time or pre-rendered, to warrant Nomura weighing in to clarify what’s going on. The debate centres around whether the opening cinematic in the Versus section of the trailer is in-game or pre-rendered footage. On the 3rd Birthday Twitter, Nomura says that this scene with Noctis is indeed pre-rendered but the rest of the trailer is completely in-game. Nomura also says that the desert Noctis is running around would probably be best to travel around via a car unless the player chose not to do so.

The part of his Tweet I’m most interested in though is the last. He confirms that the Behemoth fight at the end of the trailer has been slowed down. Nomura says this is because Noctis is so fast that the viewer wouldn’t be able to see him clearly. It’s a big sigh of relief but it does make me question why they even chose to do this in the first place. I’m sure most of us would have preferred to see him fight at normal speed.

Although it may have taken longer than expected, the joint Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII trailers have been officially released online. Unlike the previous Square Enix trailers released over the past couple of weeks though, you unfortunately need to have a login to the Japanese Square Enix Members site. Of course that hasn’t stopped people from ripping it. Here’s the trailer for all to see. An HD version will probably be released soon.

Update: The Youtube link has been taken down. We’ve now uploaded it to our own player.

It looks like we won’t have to wait for our Versus and Agito fix for quite as long as we though. Both the Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII trailers have been leaked and posted online. They’ve been recorded on a camera obviously so the quality is pretty bad but at least they didn’t get caught recording them. Here you go:

Although the combined Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII trailer has been spared the fate of appearing in Square’s infamous Closed Mega Theatre, it’s humiliatingly been stuck only appearing on screens inside the Square Enix booth where people queue to play other games. Even so, Gamespot has taken the time to post some impressions of the trailer. Read them below.

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

The Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer was part of a series of incredibly brief trailers that showed images from Final Fantasy XIII as well as Final Fantasy Agito XIII. We saw the main character, a young man with short black hair wander through several completely deserted areas. First it was a barren landscape, then it switched to a deteriorated roadway, and eventually we see him in the city, where it was just him fighting a giant behemoth. The quick fight scene showed him jumping and slashing furiously at the beast. Any hint of color or life in the trailer was limited to the spurts of red blood, coming from the behemoth, which stood out against the mostly dark and grey environment. There was nothing else on screen that would give us any clues as to how this game is set up other than it looks to be a 3D action game.“lockquote>

Final Fantasy Agito XIII

It does appear that the cast in the game are a bunch of students, as we saw a young girl school girl in a noticeably short skirt wielding a giant hammer. The gameplay appears to be action oriented, with a targeting system similar to Crisis Core. Even if we could understand Japanese, the trailer was over so fast that all we could make out was that there will be some giant mechanical foes as well as chocobos to ride on.

At the end of the series of painfully short trailers, which included images for Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Square Enix revealed that a Fabula Nova Crystallis conference will be held January 11, 2011, so we can assume all the information is being saved until then.“lockquote>

Final Fantasy XIII DLC Will Never Happen

After over a year of rumour and speculation about the potential for Downloadable content coming to Final Fantasy XIII, it was last ominously left with a comment from Motomou Toriyama saying “good things were on the horizon” to people who held onto their copies. This gave many hope that DLC would be making it’s way to FFXIII, and apparently it was. But not now.

In an interview, Toriyama states “We had plans for DLC, but those plans disappeared. Apologies!”. Many of you probably expected this lackluster news but it still begs the question, “Why not?”.
