In a bizarre twist of events, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is getting Facebook support. By inputting your social network credentials in the game's settings, you'll be able to update your friends on your party structure, story progress, and other useless statistics.

Does anyone else think this is kind of backwards? Personally, I think this idea is far better suited for leaderboards. I like the idea of in-game information staying in-game, and not having to use an additional step to compare stats. It's much more convenient to see how my friends are doing by using a simple seamless menu while playing, than it is to leave my console and go check a third party website to see what my friends are up to.

But hey, at least it's better than Final Fantasy's other "2", which only really offered super stylish outfits. For more information, check out the official press release after the break.

Greetings!
 
Square Enix announced today the ability for players to post achievements and trophies on Facebook® as they journey through FINAL FANTASY® XIII-2, now available at retailers.
 
For the first time in FINAL FANTASY history, players can keep friends up-to-date with their gaming experience via a direct link to Facebook. Once players are introduced to the Historia Crux, they will have the chance to upload information about their progress: including current party setup, monsters collected, battle scores and more.
 
 
FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 Key Features

FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 will reveal further events from the amazing mythology as presented in the original FINAL FANTASY XIII. The story is written in a way that it can still be enjoyed without playing the previous title.

The situation, scenery, flora, fauna and weather conditions all change, depending on when you visit locations. Untangling the threads of time is essential to experience the full story.
·        Enhanced Battle System
New elements, such as visually dynamic Cinematic Action sequences and the Mog Clock that rewards players for their actions, create further variety and choice for the player.
·        Master of Monsters
A wide variety of more than 150 different monsters inhabiting the game world can be recruited into the player’s party and battle strategy, with each creature having unique and devastating special abilities.

Review: Final Fantasy XIII-2

Final Fantasy XIII was not a "4" for me, but I wouldn't have given it much more credit. The story was, at times, confusing and very hard to follow, the proper nouns it used made my ears hurt, and the summoned, transformi...more

Final Fantas-free: 14 day Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial

Square Enix is offering 14 days of free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC. As someone who doesn't like MMOs, but likes Final Fantasy, I might just try it out. Fourteen may be the perfect number of days for me to get my fill. Or maybe I'll find myself a convert and end up a paying customer, as Square Enix likely hopes. more

Final Fantasy director Tetsuya Nomura designed a Batman figure that looks like a Gundam

Square Enix has partnered WB and DC for a PlayArts Kai line of Batman toys designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura. Not a single zipper in sight. The first prototype, above, is gracing Comic Con and looking a bit like Death Scythe from Gundam Wing (with some Spawn in there, maybe).more

As we reported earlier today, Square-Enix is holding a contest to win some fabulous Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call prizes. All you have to do is create a short video of your own musical rendition of the Final Fantasy "Main Theme". I took the opportunity to try to turn this news report into an entry for the contest. I probably won't win.more
