Remember all that Type-0 stuff released in Famitsu a week and a half ago? Well GAME Watch have done a similar feature but with much more detailed descriptions and tons of screenshots to go with them. There’s even some new stuff Famitsu didn’t feature as well as this piece of artwork. See the parts Famitsu missed out below.
Suzaku Peristylium has thirteen Moogles dubbed the Cranberry Knights that are there to support the students and give them missions. There’s one Moogle for each class including Class Zero.
Subcharacters and l’Cie
Plenty of new screenshots of the newly announced subcharacters and l’Cie have been released plus some official artwork. There isn’t really any new details about the characters themselves but enjoy the pretty pictures of Aria, Carla, Naghi, Caetuna, Ninbus and Enkidu as well as the star of the games logo, Diva.
There’s much more so view the full article.
Square Enix Europe have been passive-aggressive and released the 30 screenshots from earlier today in English and at their native resolution. So now enjoy Noel, Serah, Lightning and friend, Historia Crux, Morality Bar Chocobo (because it’s blue and red, see) and Valhalla in a language you can understand.
Famitsu have posted the screenshots from their Final Fantasy XIII-2 feature that’s in this week’s Weekly Famitsu. While the information was more or less the same as Dengeki’s feature, there’s now 30 images for you to gawk at. You can start to get a feel of the game’s time-travelling Historiacross system and see the differences of a single location in different time periods. Another special part of the feature was a proper reveal on Lightning. There’s several screenshots of her fight with Chaos Bahamut and Valhalla. To top it all off, there’s some direct feed screenshots of Yoshinori Kanada’s sequence.
Many new screenshots (a whopping 65 in total) have been released featuring a handful of the things recently highlighted in Japanese gaming magazines such as the 3 characters; Trey, Cater, and Cinque and also the Bahamut Summon. Renders of the newer character have also been included. Click “more” to see them all.
To go with the Type-0 screenshots, Famitsu has released a bundle of Final Fantasy XIII-2 screenshots, featuring 5 we haven’t seen before. Although there isn’t much new information we can extract from these shots, two of them do feature Yaschas Massif but during nighttime, showing the day and night cycle featured in the game.
Famitsu has released 16 new screenshots of Final Fantasy Type-0 on their website featuring many of the new characters revealed in their latest issue. There isn’t much more to say so see them all below.
As promised, Square has released a bunch of new Final Fantasy XIII-2 screenshots today. With them comes a render of the new Serah artwork released yesterday, as well as a mashup of the previous two XIII-2 trailers, featuring narration from Kitase and Toriyama.
The screenshots feature a new area known as Yaschas Massif, a location near where Hope received Alexander on Gran Pulse. The ruins themselves are of Paddra, what was once one of the largest cities on Pulse. The city is filled with soldiers and scientists searching for something.
Remember how Square Enix said they were going to release some new information for Final Fantasy XIII-2 today? Me neither. While anybody who’s a very cool and important somebody has been busy logging serious face time with that pretty spiffy Type-0 demo, Square Enix chucked out a few new XIII-2 screenshots which show a new gameplay mechanic.
Say you’re wandering about and you see a lone treasure sphere floating above a (in)conveniently placed platform that you can’t get to. What do you do? Spend 20 hours trying to figure out how to get up there? Nope! You can pick up your moogle friend and toss him over there to get the goodies. That must be how his face got that way – too many collisions with hard surfaces.
We’ll be seeing more XIII-2 info from Square on August 22nd.
Update: Even more screenshots have popped up online as well as some Moogle artwork. The three screenshots above have also been released in a higher resolution.

Square Enix has released new detailed descriptions of the countries that form the world of Final Fantasy Type-0. With them come new screenshots and artwork, as well as the flags for all four of the countries and a brief biography of each of their important figures. Take your time to take it all in.
This is the country which the Suzaku Peristerium is based and home to all of the main characters of the game. Rebrum is run by eight individuals who are also in charge of the school the students of Class 0 attend. The school admits students based on the Crystals decision. If they are magically gifted, they’re admitted to the school and split into classes.
Who’s in charge?
Khalia Chival VI is both the chancellor of the school and head of state. He was a great sorcerer when he was younger.
A militaristic empire with a missing emperor and the yearning to possess the crystals the other three countries control. The Byakko Crystal the nation holds is capable of creating weapons which any citizens can wield, unlike the limited power grated by the other nations crystals to only a few individuals. Because of this, the empire has a vast army containing tens of thousands of troops.
Who’s in charge?
Admiral Cid Aulstyne is the countries de facto leader and also the head of the Byakko Peristerium, a research organisation studying the energy released from the crystal to use for the military.
The Lolica Commonwealth, a mountainous country, contains the Genbu Peristerium which holds the Genbu Crystal. The crystal strengthens the people of the nation, making their bodies larger than those of other nationalities. Most of the population server as Knights to protect the country.
Gilgamesh is a well know l’Cie from the Genbu Crystal who has forgotten his focus. He fights opponents, trying to target their weapons.
Concordia is home to the Souryu Crystal, which gives the people of the country the ability to talk to monsters and dragons. This ability is used in day-to-day life as well as in combat to give them an edge. The people of the country are quite small so rely on speed and spears in combat.
Who’s in charge?
Queen Andoria is the leader of Concordia with the government mainly comprising of women. The queen is the actual physical representation of the Souryu Crystal and is therefore the only person able to communicate with the Queen Dragon.
