Square Enix has updated the Final Fantasy Type-0 website with an extended TGS trailer containing tons of new footage and the less than endearing theme song by Bump of Chicken. You’ll get to see all the recently announced characters in motion as well as what seems like a rather somber and spoiler filled ending. Watch all 5 minutes of it for yourself here.
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.
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.
Famitsu is reporting that although the PS3 Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailer was released earlier, we have more instore for us in the form of a slightly different Xbox 360 trailer coming soon. The first difference is that the 360 trailer will use the second theme song by Charice announced earlier rather than the one we saw earlier by Mai Fukui.
Other than that, the trailer features the same battle sequences but with alternative cutscenes. In these cutscenes, the purple haired man (now confirmed to be named Kaias) and the newly revealed masked girl (named Yuru) are shown meeting with Serah and her friends. It is revealed that Kaias is apparently unable to die. Famitsu predicts the game will have themes relating to the creation or correction of time paradox’s due several phrases used in the dialog. They predict Noel and Serah will travel between time periods throughout the game. Towns people are shown in the trailer transforming into Cie’th just like in the first game. Speaking about this, Lightning says “This is a future that I was not able to protect”. The trailer ends with Kaias “doing something to a fallen Noel” but Famitsu don’t give any more details.
The new Xbox 360 trailer will likely be released very soon.
The latest trailer for Final Fantasy Type-0 has been released at the Tokyo Game Show today. It features new gameplay and cutscenes as well as the first ever preview of it’s theme song, Zero by Bump of Chicken. See all of it below.
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.

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.
The Tokyo Game Show is slowly creeping up, but today it was announced that a Final Fantasy XIII-2 Special would be airing on TV during the first day of the event. The half an hour special, announced on the BS11 website, is said to contain a never before seen trailer as well as special guest appearances. It will be airing on BS11 at 8:00 to 8:30pm Tokyo time on the 15th September.
Tokyo Game Show. One of the world’s major gaming events and Japan’s biggest. Every September, gamers and their representative media swarm to get a dose of upcoming gaming awesome. Unfortunately for some, Final Fantasy Versus XIII won’t be a part of the sweet gaming formula pumped directly into the veins of the gaming world this year.
Speaking to Dengeki and doing them a little art favour as part of their 500th issue, Tetsuya Nomura said that Versus wouldn’t be appearing, but the next showing of the game has been set. When? He didn’t say, but they know and they will hopefully stick to it.
May this year marked five years since the game’s announcement.
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.
