At Tokyo Game Show, I stood beneath a screen that was easily two stories tall and watched the latest Final Fantasy XIII trailer with drool leaking from the corners of my mouth and surely a dozen Japanese people staring and thinking I was even weirder than usual. Honestly, I couldn't help it. Never have I been so affected by watching something I couldn't completely understand, and I felt more sure than ever at that moment that the game really did have what it takes to blow me away.
GameTrailers recently posted a subbed version of said trailer, and it quite confirms pretty much everything I was feeling when I first saw it on that titanic screen. Revealing bits of the deeper relationships between the characters, it led me to believe I really have something to look forward to from this game besides the fun of great fights and beautiful cutscenes.
What do you think after seeing this subbed trailer?
