S-E promised activities in XIII-2 to break up the endless battles and cutscenes, and it looks as though they’ve delivered in this all new trailer.
It’s mostly old stuff, but some of it is quite interesting. There are several types of puzzles within the time gates, from connect-the-dots style to the earlier seen clock puzzles. We also see demonstrations of the monster hunting sidequests, slot machines and chocobo racing. Lastly, it seems that there will be a man within the game (invisible and found by Mog in the trailer) who will quiz you on your knowledge. In the trailer, this Captain Cryptic quizzed Serah on the appearance of a particular structure within the game world.
Square-Enix released a new trailer today that features Serah and Noel’s little friend Mog. While most of the information in the trailer is old news, it does shed some light on exactly how some of Mog’s features work. And if you watch it until the very end, there is a surprising development. As always, comments and discussion are welcome in the forums!
Now that the Japanese release of Final Fantasy XIII-2 is just around the corner, a few preview trailers of its improved gameplay have been released just recently. The official Japanese website has released these videos entitled as Battle – Basics and Battle – Expert. Both videos show the enhanced battle system, showing off the new features such as Blood Damage, Feral Link, and more. These videos can be watched under the “System” section.
Furthermore, IGN has also released an “Enhanced Battle System” trailer, demonstrating the same aforementioned features of the battle system. Head over to ign.com to watch it.
A Final Fantasy Type-0 trailer supplied with the limited edition version of Bump of Chickens “Zero” single has made it’s way online. The seven minute trailer mainly consists of cutscenes with quite a bit of new footage. This is possibly the last trailer we’ll get to see, so let’s hope it can tide you over until the games release. If it just isn’t enough for you, a 10 minute version of the promo video is available on Nico Nico which includes a three and a half minute long cutscene at the end. Enjoy!
Square Enix has just released the Japanese version of the NYCC Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailers on their Youtube channel, yet instead of being titled “New Adventures”, they call it the “Final Trailer”. With the games release coming in two months, it’s not surprising that there’s little more to show. See both the PS3 and Xbox 360 trailers below with full Japanese voice acting.
IGN have posted a new trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2 from the New York Comic Con. The trailer centres on the conflict with Caius, supposedly immortal and a kind of timeline overseer who has a bone to pick with absolutely everyone. He and his Yeul start getting in everyone’s faces and the whole tone turns antagonistic.
Points to note are Lightning’s avoidance when Serah asks if they’ll ever be together again and Yeul insinuating that Serah’s on her merry way to death if she and Noel continue messing with the timeline. Sounds like Serah might be screwed no matter what, which is great. Unless you like Serah, I mean.
Check it out below.
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.
