Final Fantasy XIII-2 Trailer Sees Lightning Reborn in Feathers

The first trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2 is now available in English, not that it becomes any less cryptic.

For Final Fantasy fans, the announcement of Final Fantasy XIII-2 couldn't have been much of a surprise. Square Enix spent a lot of time working on Final Fantasy XIII, and probably wanted to get at least one more game out of the resulting product.

Now that Final Fantasy XIII-2's first trailer is officially available in English, we get a little more explanation about what it'll be about from the main woman herself. Lightning is shown turning from crystal to human in the events that occur right after Final Fantasy XIII. "That time was lost, but time continued onwards," she says.

Lightning then tells "divine Etro," referring to the Goddess Etro, to "sleep in peace," and says she will stand guard over her. In the realm "beyond time," Lightning reveals that her "life begins anew."

The scene changes to a newly armored Lightning kneeling in front of what might be Etro's resting place, shaking the feathers out of her sword. Lightning's rival stands behind her, whom is perhaps one of the enemies she must protect Etro from. I don't understand why the rivals in Final Fantasy always have cooler looking swords than the main characters.

I was one of the people that had a tough time adjusting to Final Fantasy XIII, but I'm still willing to give Final Fantasy XIII-2 a shot. If Square Enix follows the formula of Final Fantasy X-2, which swapped in a bunch of new gameplay mechanics, it could make for a title that certain gamers enjoy more than the original.

Judging by the amount of feathers, I'm guesing she has Sephiroth's other wing.

Now she has actually become a chick.

HURR HURR HURR HURR!!!!!

OT: Lets just hope it isn't as bad as that other -2 FF game

So, at first it was a final fantasy trailer, and then in the last few seconds it all went a bit Bayonetta.

Cool. I've been considering grabbing FF13 for a while now, but I've avoided it as I've always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with the Final Fantasy games and I could never get any sort of brief summary of what the plot was like, other than 'linear' (which is admittedly brief), which you know, being an FF game I'd kinda taken for granted.

I thought FFX-2 was universally regarded as shit. And I'm not just saying that because Yahtzee said it -_- I went to buy in on a whim one day and they guy behind the counter literally said "don't buy this it's bad"

Give me more Sazh and I'm happy.

That's all I need.

And give Serah a combat role.

Not that I care for JRPG's or anything I am just wondering if it is still going to take 20 hours to get interesting? Maybe the long corridors will have some twists and turns to it aswell.

Two questions:

1: Where's Sazh?
2: Where's Snow?

Wait a minute. "PEGI 16?" You mean that the game's in a state that it could be rated already?

I was disappointed, I didn't see a single garment grid.

Needs more Fang...

Also hoping that it won't be leeching Versus XIII dev-team, like FFXIII did.

wouldnt that involve a continuity to the final fantasy games? in one respect it would be nice but in another very confusing unless its like DC Comics were there are multiple earths.

on a side note were does your avatar come from i think ive seen that face before(reminds me of a character from Princess Waltz but i am not sure so id like to know)

Soooo... Its now FF8, with a female lead?
I liked VIII...

Delusibeta:

my thought that itll be coming out before the end of spring next year just because of that rating......

another thought of mine is that this was meant to be a part of the first game but it got set aside and expanded and will have that feel to it, kinda like Brotherhood and Creed 2....

Lets just hope it isn't as bad as FF XIII. By that I mean completely different in just about every way except for the graphics.

anyone else reminded of Aion?

Veloxe:

well i didnt see gameplay so there is still hope for Lightning and 2 other female leads to start changing clothes until you get to the skimpy outfits maybe thats why its PEGI 16

Just when the Cloud/Lighting thing was starting to tide, now we have a Sephiroth...

Next time someone within earshot whines about a FFVII remake, I'm going to punch that individual in the throat and shove FFXIII down it.

If it is something like FF X-2.... ugh... it will be... another headache....

Lightning is joining the cast of Soul Calibur now?

Cool.

And they even found a way to get nudity into a full plate.

Impressive.

And sad.

Shaking the feathers out of her sword?

XIII is a VII remake just as...um...I can't think of a good comparison of how bad of an analogy that is.

VII had free roaming, interesting side characters, hidden characters, truly customizable magic, and fantastic villans.

XIII had narrow passages, truly awful side characters (except Sazh), hidden NOTHING, a battle system as deep as the opening of MGS4, and truly awful bad guys.

/thread.

OT: not really sure why they felt the need to make a second one...although I can't pretend that I'm not going to play it, I'll probably be waiting for a few significant price drops first...

HAVE AT YOU SIR!!! I'll admit the story was terrible but the gameplay was soooooooooooo much better then any other FF I played AND it also managed to use fanservice in the core gameplay as well as the stlye without letting it interfere with character development or story progression...... how little there was at least, you know story...... and character development...... God the male characters were terrible...... shaddup.

You have to give props to Jennifer Hale for being able to voice all that pretentious out-of-context nonsense. Let's just hope the infamously lucky number XIII doesn't get hyped way out of proportion again and then branded as a disappointment because, despite being a great game, did not hail the second-coming of Christ.

Perhaps I wasn't clear. I'm not calling XIII a remake of VII. That would be a vast insult to VII. What I mean is that XIII is a prime example of why a VII remake would be a terrible idea.

FFX-2 was awesome, it was like a modern remake of Final Fantasy V (crappy story, fantastic gameplay). The only reason guys tear themselves up about about it is that the characters are female.

Hmm... I might try it if I ever get around to finishing XIII...

I liked XIII (mostly because of the setting and the characters), and I'm probably going to like this one. I'll just wait and see and get it when it comes out. One more game to look forward to.

That is a yummy costume. It actually seems more functional than im use to in Japanese Female Armor lol

What? No pop song?

you forgot one character the little Chocobo that Sazh carries it is truely the best char in that game

Keep Lightning, keep Snow, keep Sazh, and even keep Hope, but please make sure Fang and Vanille don't come back. This isn't Dragon Ball Z, I'd like it if they stayed "dead" so that their sacrifice didn't seem meaningless.

You mean the character that may or may not have actually been behind everything that happened in the game? :P
