Final Fantasy XIII-2: What's new in a nutshell, screens


12:30 PM on 12.12.2011



Why did I bother writing that huge preview of Final Fantasy XIII-2? This new video from Square Enix covers it all, really. It gets you up to speed on the new story, updates you on the new systems and additions, shows off the new monster bits, and flaunts its new look. That's...everything.

Square Enix also sent along some new screens. In our gallery you'll find that they really want you to notice that there's a "Beginner's Primer," which lets you catch up on the story of the first game before getting started. You'll also find images of a huge Cactuar in his famous pose. I love his moves.

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
