Jump: New Final Fantasy Type-0 Diablos and l’Cie Scan
Date: September 16th, 2011 Author: Kitmitsu
News Category: Final Fantasy Type-0
Tags: , ,

Jump’s latest issue has a page feature on Final Fantasy Type-0, this time revealing the inclusion of Diablos as a summon and two new l’cie. Nimbus (right), dubbed a “cyborg” l’cie from the Byakko Crystal is silent and enigmatic who has fought many rival l’Cie in the past. Setsuna (left) is from the Suzaku Crystal and is apparently the most senior l’cie. She’s a skilled summon magic user who can summon 1000 beasts at once.

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.

Some five and a bit years down the line, the veil has finally been lifted on the remaining members of Class Zero with Famitsu running a feature on the characters of Trey, Cater and Cinque. Now you can sit down and think long and hard about who your main party will be – time to play favourites.

You can also cop a look at Qun’mi, Zhuyu and the king of Concordia – Byakko l’cie, Suzaku l’Cie and, well, king of Concordia respectively. Beyond that, there’s a short section dedicated to the game’s recently-revealed system of party attacks, known as Volley. Your three active characters will team up and then mess things up. And finally, the series-staple summon Bahamut makes an appearance, in all his dragon-y glory. Feel free to admire all the pretty pictures below.

Famitsu lands on shelves tomorrow.

The latest issue of V-Jump  has been released with a small preview of Final Fantasy XIII-2. Unfortunately, most of the information has already been revealed so there isn’t anything new except for the picture of Serah. See it below.

V-Jump has released a Final Fantasy Type-0 feature on newly named character Cater, Deuce, and Trey. With it comes summaries on the three class zero members, detailing their personality and weapons. See the scan itself below.


Known for her strong confidence and emotions. She hates to lose and can be relied on in any situation but wears her heart on her sleeve. Her weapon is a shotgun with magic infused shells. She can’t move while firing but her ammo can be fired continuously without ever running out.


A mature class member, who’s calm and takes care of his appearance. His wisdom allows him to understand peoples train of thought but he’s known for speaking at great length. Trey’s weapon is a bow which gives him the furthest range of all the students but he can only hit still targets.


A serious girl who works arduously, performing her duties for class zero without hesitation. Quick to speak her mind. She uses a flute as her weapon which sends “bundles of sound” towards her target. She can use musical scales to set traps.

Jump: Shiva Type-0 Reveal and Phantoma System
Date: July 27th, 2011 Author: Kitmitsu
News Category: Final Fantasy Type-0
Tags: , ,

Although previously shown in the latest Type-0 trailer, Shiva appears in a full page spread in the latest issue of Jump featuring new screenshots and artwork of her. The article also reveals the newly announced Phantoma System.

Phantoma is gathered from defeated enemies and used to power up your character’s magic. Phantoma comes in various colours which represent different parts of magic development. Gathering the particular colour Phantoma for the particular kind of magic development will boost it.

Famitsu’s latest issue contains their dissection of Final Fantasy XIII-2′s E3 info with several new screenshots. By now, we’ve heard almost everything we can from FFXIII-2′s E3 appearance but there are a few new details other publications have missed, two of which were fairly self-evident.

Firstly, if it wasn’t obvious already, storytelling will be focused on Serah and Lightning rather than Serah and Snow this time around. Towns have already been revealed but it’s been confirmed that players will be able to revisit them. Alyssa, the new female character in the E3 trailer, has been criticized for her poor design. Many blamed Nomura but according to Famitsu, she was actually designed by Hideo Manaba.

The new scans can be seen below. Thankfully, Famitsu has posted the new screenshots on their website in higher resolution. See them below too.

The first scans containing information released during E3 have begun to appear on Japanese soil with Jump being the first as usual. Very little is revealed in the single page that’s been released so as usual we’ll have to wait for Dengeki and Famitsu to fill us in on the real dirt in the coming days.

Here’s the couple of details we do have. Firstly, the Optima Change system from the Japanese original will now be called Paradigm Shift just like the international version. Secondly, development has been confirmed to be roughly 70% complete meaning that delays are unlikely – barring a catastrophe. It’s not much but see the full scan below.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 in GameInformer
Date: June 10th, 2011 Author: Agent Dunham

Tags: , ,

The most recent issue of GameInformer has run a 4 page article on the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2. Starting with a recap of Final Fantasy XIII’s finale (so if you haven’t finished it, you might want to get on that) and of that little short story thing included with the Japanese Xbox 360 release (so if you haven’t read it, you might want to get on that, as well), most of what’s in the article has already been revealed via E3 demos and interviews over the past week. If, however, you find yourself drowning under all the videos and interviews, maybe GI can help you.

The article has been scanned by Second_Chances of GameFAQs. See below.

Thanks to forum member Meowster for the links.

Issue 495 of Dengeki PlayStation has featured an article on Final Fantasy Type-0 which reveals two new characters.

Alongside King and Sice from the recent Jump reveal, Dengeki details the characters Eight and Arecia Al-Rashia. Eight is a red-headed youth specialising in hand-to-hand combat. Arecia heads up the magic division for Suzaku. She is said to have particularly notable chesty appendages and glasses, bringing to mind Jihl Nabaat from Final Fantasy XIII.

The magazine also touched on the role of Gilgamesh in the game. Gilgamesh is a l’Cie to the Genbu crystal and seems to have forgotten the mission imposed on him. Nevertheless, he seems rather content to attempt to lay some smackdown on the game’s young heroes, appearing as a massive boss.

Dengeki detailed various aspects of the gameplay as well, including the game’s Active World Map. The Active World Map is a system where various areas will come under attack and the player can assist in defending against invaders (not the space kind… as far as we know). As one example of a map mission, you may be instructed to take over an enemy stronghold in a city. Upon your victory, you’ll be able to make use of the amenities offered by the city, such as shops.

Continuing the relative blowout of information, Dengeki reveals that during missions, you may receive Special Orders, additional objectives that yield special rewards when completed. On the other hand, if you fail, then you get the very, very special reward of death. Fortunately, you will not automatically be obligated to the orders, with the opportunity to reject them being present.

Finally, two battle features known as Kill Sight and Break Sight. Time an attack just right against an enemy with a red target and they will be instantly defeated. This is Kill Sight. Break Sight features a yellow target and, while not killing the enemy, it will cause heavy damage.

Type-0 is beginning to show its immensely ambitious nature. Those 2 UMDs make so much more sense now. It looks as if the PSP is going to go out with a bang. Or that could just be you failing a Special Order.

Edit 25/5: And now some scans – meaning photos – of Eight, Arecia and Gilgamesh have made their way onto 2channel. These are from issue 1173 of Weekly Famitsu, which has run a similar story to Dengeki PlayStation.

Thanks to forum member Sabin for the tip.
