New Final Fantasy XIII trailer: Superb voice acting


Seeing this new trailer for Final Fantasy XIII is a thrill for me as I've put going on 40 hours into the Japanese version. It's nice to see how it's going to turn out in my first language. And wow, the voice acting is superb. I've seen all of the included scenes (holy sh*t, some are dangerously close to spoiling), and I can say that the English language version holds up very well when compared to the Japanese version. Color me impressed. Fantastic job, Square Enix.

You'll also get to hear the new cut (I hate when people say that) of Leona Lewis' "My Hands," the Final Fantasy XIII theme song for the round eyes. It's no "Eyes on Me," but it does the trick. I'm probably alone in liking the sappy pop ballads instead. The Japanese score has me all melty and romantic. I've learned the main theme on piano already.

But back to the voice acting. Damn. I'm so proud of you, Square Enix. I'm definitely playing the English version now.

Our impressions of the Japanese version of the game are coming soon. A preview? Well, if you're wanting a controversial score, you're going to have to go to one of the other editors. I f*cking love this game.
