Square Enix has released a new trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2 that shows off the game's enhanced battle system. It starts off in familiar territory, but toward the end you get a little tease of the game's new Cinematic Action sequences. You'll see Noel and Serah work to save themselves from a huge obstacle mid-battle, but the person that cuts these trailers loves to stop the action right before we see what happens. Tease.
What's cool about these sequences is that your performance actually determines the outcome. It's not like other games where you'll have to retry over and over until you get it right. Here, if you miss, something else (bad) happens.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is only a couple of months away now, landing on January 31, 2012.
