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.

    Reminds me of Xenogears, does it still use that fighting system from 12? it doesn’t look that way with all the flash moves going on. 12 was lacking flashiness thats what the FF series since 7 was all about. To be honest I miss some good old turn based action like Lost Odyssey… man that was a great game!

    @furiouslee, Actually if you paid close attention to the ATB in FF XII Settings menu, you could essentially dumb down the AI, set the ATB to Wait to get the feel. The difference being is that you’ll be able to move around the battle field but it actually works the same way.

    A lot of users mentioned this complaint but didn’t realize that the old system was still intact. EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS MENU!

    @Sir-G, I’ve never seen a FF come early and this is episode 20 something and it will perhaps stay that way … shit look at Crystal Bearers, didn’t they cancel that at one point … ???

    I give all FF a shot and then judge. This one looks promising! Lets all hope for an early release date!
