Press the action button!

I didn't think it possible, but they somehow chose characters seemingly more annoying than the first  cast of 13. Meh, w/e. Didn't care for 13, but apparently I'm in the minority so doesn't really matter. If a bunch of people are going to enjoy this then don't let me rain on your parade.

I love Final Fantasy, but they have not had the same impact in a LONG time... anything post FFXI was very sub par.

Looks great! I was a fan of the first, and this one seems like its addressing all the issues people had with the first game. I'm going to get it.

The first XIII wasn't even interesting enough for me to finish, and I really like Final Fantasy.  This one just looks like utter shit.

I played through FF13.  It was alright.  I'll play this.  Graphically, man.  Although that guy looks like he's from Kingdom Hearts.
 
Looks like Laura Bailey's getting some more work.

Fooled me once

noway am I playing another one of these

Posted by fox01313

Wondering if this one will also feature the great innovation of taking 40+ hours until they start letting people have more fun with the linear gameplay like the previous one.

XIII, XIII-2 and XIV I couldn't give a shit about please release Versus already.

Finally, a Japanese RPG where I get to play as a spunky teenager.

Non-linear, multiple endings, towns, sidequests, dialogue options, decision making and Laura Bailey.

Ok you got me.

Posted by Cathryn

Played through half of FFXIII -- I can't imagine why they're making a direct sequel to that game instead of doing another main series game or at least pushing to finish Versus XIII, which looks way more interesting.

Wonder what happened to Snow, though :/

Saw the teaser for this a few days ago and thought it was mostly going to be about Lightning, but I gues I was wrong about that.

I may pick it up -- it may actually force me to finish XIII, but I kind've doubt it.

While you say that, the fact that FFXIII sold in excess of 5.5 million copies makes me believe this franchise isn't going anywhere for a while.

Just glad Waka is back.... 
 
Yes make a decent character in Lightening SE and then make her secondary.  You're purposely trolling your fanbase now.

Posted by RYNO9881

I'm kinda excited. Hope they fix some stuff from the last one though.

Posted by Beforet

Can we just drop the numbers, Square?

Posted by Spooty

Did they really just make the most annoying character in 13 the main character in 13-2?

Never finished XIII but I liked the battle system a lot. Not sure I'd play this one though.

If you're hoping the battle system gets less unbearable and repetitive because of what people say online--
 
its wont. It continues sucking, save for a handful of battles which actually had you make up strategies.

I like Lightning purely because of the principle of seeing a strong, female protagonist in a videogame. 
 
As an actual character, though....she's pretty bland. She is literally Cloud, but with a vagina.

LOL at Drew putting out the vibe at the end there.

Finally, a game I'm hyped for. Huzzah.

Actually, Lightning's character is basically a copy and paste of Squall's character. Only with all the bad things about Squall amped up to 11, and given less time in the story to develop.

Purely on aesthetics? Yeah, she's basically Cloud with a vagina.

Posted by Brackynews

Wow, Sora's all growed up now. Can you partner up with Mickey Moogle? In the last -2 game everyone was wearing theme park costumes by the end...

I joke, but eventually I will own a copy. So joke's on me. Goddammit.

Maybe they can "appeal to the base" by putting moomba's back in or something.

/goes to fix up Moomba page

Posted by CaptainComedy

Alright, I'm excited for this now. The last trailer did not a lot for me other than prove this title actually exists, but after a few re-watches, this trailer has grown on me. I am decidedly pumped!

Posted by NotSoSneakyGuy

Anyone else noticed that Lightning is voiced by the voice actress who voices Liara from Mass Effect?

Yup, I'm quite surprise people get this confuse. Lightning is standoffish and argumentative (aka Squall). Cloud is more taciturn and withdrawn. Anyway, I'll probably get this because I bought XIII and might as well see this through to the end. Augh I hope this game is decent at least.

Oh man... why did I click on this? I'm sorry, I have to go... be anywhere else.

It goes even further than that.

Squall, Cloud and Lightning are all soldiers. That's about it as far as the similarities between Cloud and Lightning go. For the earlier parts, Squall and lightning are both fairly antisocial and argumentative. Both Lightning and Squall have a leadership role they didn't ask for. Squall begrudgingly accepts that role, while Lightning violently refuses it, and tends to take her anger out on others(Usually Snow). Squall's primary source of character development is his friends, who gradually get him to open up his cold personality over the course of at least a month. Lightning''s the same way, only she suddenly opens up over the course of about two days.

Cloud, on the other hand, is a mostly confused and internally conflicted guy whose main source of character development comes from him learning who he really is, and he just kind of goes with it when a bunch of people start following him.

Lightning is an angrier, less social and more violent Squall.

Anyways, I think I am one of the few people on the internet who didn't mind FFXIII. It had it's bad parts, but it also had a fair amount of good parts that kept it from being truly unlikable.

That said, this trailer completely ruined the few hopes I had for XIII-2.

So...Final Fantasy Thirteen...Two?

Edited by AURON570

what??? Lightning is dead? Who is this punk Noel? Serah has a new boyfriend? WTF? where is Snow and the others? WTF?!?!

Posted by Kombat

What the fuck is Square even thinking anymore? People have been begging for a Final Fantasy VII remake, a Chrono Trigger sequel, and more for quite a while now. Instead they're busy making games nobody asked for, and very few people want.

Posted by North6

I hope it actually says "cinematic action" during the cinematic action like that.

Posted by MisterMouse

I wonder what changes they are making to the gameplay.

Posted by UlquioKani

from the walkthrough they were showing, they were talking about fixing the "problems with battle system". There was no problem with the battle system, it was everything else. The annoying characters, the dull linear world, the lack of side quests, the poor voice acting, the lack of interesting customization of weapons and so on. The only thing this game had was a good battle system and even that wasn't showing it's full potential till chapter 8 or so. The world does open up at chapter 11 of 13 and this world is bland and full of kill quests that are boring. Don't fix the battle system, there was nothing wrong with it

That narrator sounds like Liara in ME2.

Lightning is a dream

Versus is there only hope IMO.......its not the end for Square, but you can see it from here...
Posted by Medrex

I'm less than thrilled for this game. The coolest parts of the whole traielr were the bits with lightning in it and she really wasn't that fantastic a character in her own game. 
They could be remaking or creating sequels to some of the older more succesfull games or coming up with a new IP altogether but instead they're making a sequel that few if any wanted.
If they'd decided to make this game a few years from now it might seem less retarded but as it is, it seems like square is trying to get their money's worth on that ticket they bought for a ride on the fail train.
