FF XIII Trailer Out - Battle System Real Time??
Not the biggest news but it’s still worth mentioning. For sometime now, Square-Enix had a count down timer on their Asian and European sites. No love for the west. Still the internet has various ways to bring us together. No one new what the timer counted down to. Several guessed it was a trailer of some sort. The new item was due at 4PM GMT today 1/28/2009 (about 11AM EST). That means most of us were either at work, on our way to work, looking for work, or perhaps in bed thinking about work. Whatever the case was you should check out this new trailer. Finally, the battle system!! If you only care about that, then scrub the slider to 1:25 to see it in action.
This looks like FF XII to the 9th power. It’s obvious again that on screen seemless battles are back! While the reception for this had mixed reviews during Final Fantasy XII, I’m wondering if Square-Enix made any improvements to the system. Though I could hardly see any in this video, other than a graphical/speed/hype upgrade, I’m sure people will have good and bad to say about it. For me, it could be good.
