I like the sound the flash makes, so I'm letting it run in the backgrounds. Oh, and I registered. They have my interest piqued. Clever, clever marketing people.

Probably. I just hope it's not bogus like freakin MG IPhone. Still, looking forward to whatever they've got for us. They better show us more than just a new trailer with footage on it.

I'm pretty sure that it's a trailer.

ps. there is a countdown on the japanese site too where it says "trailer open" above it.

That was fucking epic.

That looked awesome.

EDIT: I'm kinda worried though, but i coudn't think what it was before. I hope the battle system doesn't devolve into some kingdom hearts-esque button mash fest. You press x a few times, maybe square too, and it'll do all the cool animations and juggles for you. It seemed the only variety was by mixing in a fireball or whatever. That said it would be pretty sweet, juggling into an ulitma.

That looked pretty average graphically as all ways gameplay graphics never match squares CGI quite a few rpgs specailly out of square loook just as good.

No matter what you think of the Final Fantasy franchise: Squares marketing for the games has always been top-notch, since the SNES days.

They really know how to sell that stuff.

maybe in jpn but not in america in the snes days most games received little to no advertising.

P.S: including CGI in the trailer just tells me the game will be 80% cgi and 20% gameplay like most square games any more.
