Final Fantasy XIII-2

Recommended Posts

FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 has been officially announced by Square Enix, and is due to be released this year...I assume that's just the Japanese release though.

I can't say I'm really excited about this, I liked FFXIII, but it did get quite boring for me. I'd much rather an X-3, lol.

What happened to XIII-Versus?! Did it just disappear into the abyss?

Bugger you Sqweenix, lol. Here's an updated

Lightning says:

"That time was lost, yet time continued onwards.

Sleep in peace devine Etro, I will stand guard over your legacy.

In this realm, beyond time, my life begins anew".

Just saw the trailer. Although I am major confused... *Looks around* What? I don't know who that other guy is or if he has been in another game before but other than that, it looks exciting. I am interested in seeing how the combat is. I really liked the way FF13 pulled it off. The charging bar that is. I don't like REAL turn based rpgs. Also I would like to see if the original combat system from the early FF13 trailers will be introduced.

Thanks again Morph.

A new trailer has been shown at E3. It shows off gameplay with Noel and Serah, and a small part with Lightning and Odin.

"Time flows without pause.

In a world where I no longer exist, time is about to change.

Serah, the truth still survives, but only you remember it".

I thought this was intriguing.

"Help me Lightning!"

"Get a hold of yourself! Lightning is dead!"

Final Fantasy XIII-2 was released a couple of days ago, and somehow I've managed to clock up around 12 hours on it already. At FFXIII-2's start, the year is 3AF (After the Fall) and follows Lightning's younger sister, Serah, who turned to crystal in the beginning of XIII, and Noel, a young man who says he's from the future and claims that he made a promise to Lightning that he would bring Serah to her, as she asked. So far, I must say I'm quite enjoying this one, it's definately an improvement over XIII, and getting to see a character age, or find out what mark they've made in history as you jump through time is great, and then, you can change the timeline. Combat is slightly improved, there's still the auto battle in there, but you have the option to turn it off. The areas are somewhat larger to explore, but in the end it still feels like you're being pushed down the path you're supposed to. If you're an FF fan, give it a go.

New DLC announced:

  • Square Enix and BioWare have teamed up to bring Commander Shepard costumes to the Final Fantasy XIII-2 universe. Release is TBA.

EDIT:

Commander Shepard costumes for Noel and Serah are available now.

So, does anyone have thoughts about the ending of FFXIII-2?

I think that Lightning sitting on Etro's Throne at the end signifies the end of an era, Etro's death, but also the beginning of a new one -- only the Goddess can sit on the throne, right? Is that what Serah saw before she died? Apparently Etro knew that she was dying after she saved Lightning and the others from crystal stasis, maybe when Caius "defeated the warrior" Etro gave her power to Lightning knowing that her end was coming. Goddess Lightning anyone?

:lol:

The final DLC packs for FFXIII-2 have been released. They are as follows.

  • Lightning: Requiem of the Goddess (Location: Valhalla ??? AF, Available upon Historia Crux opening. Lightning's Story has major ending spoilers though, so be careful!)

  1. Conditions for obtaining armoured Lightning's crystal.

    Defeat Caius Ballad and Chaos Bahamut while using Lightning at level 6 or 7 and obtain a five star rank in both battles. This will automatically obtain Lightning's crystal. Armoured Lightning is more powerful than XIII Lightning (whose crystal can be captured from battling her in the Coliseum. DLC required) and fights as a Commando (XIII Lightning is a Ravager). She is listed as a divine.


  • Snow: Perpetual Battlefield (Location: Coliseum ??? AF, Available upon Historia Crux opening)

  • Serah's Outfit - White Mage
  • Noel's Outfit - Black Mage
  • Mog's Outfits - A Wonderous Wardrobe (Contains 16 Costumes for Mog)
