New Final Fantasy XIII battle screens looking good

Call me crazy, but I just haven’t felt a lot of excitement this year about Final Fantasy XIII (or last year, for that matter). Square-Enix has fallen short of my expectations more than they have met them as of late, and I just didn’t want to expect too much. That is, until I saw this trailer. At that point, for some reason I found all the excitement at the same time, and ever since I’ve been genuinely hyped for this game.

You can see a few of the new battle screens in the gallery and the full batch over at Famitsu, and there’s a lot to look at. They look great, but best of all, fairly uncluttered, which is an issue I’ve had with a lot of recent RPGs. If I could somehow play one Dead Space style with my health displayed physically on my body, I’d be absolutely thrilled, although I’m not holding my breath.

According to Square, the game is still slated to come out sometime this year. Excited?
