The latest updates on Final Fantasy XIII-2
A recent update we received on the soon to be expected Final Fantasy XIII-2 in the form of an interview on Famitsu with Toriyama, director of the FF project. Translation was done by Artefact from SankakuComplex:
The last game was a story driven by an escape drama, emphasising story and moving the game along with that. However, we received varied opinions from many users, and this time the story will be player driven, with the player actively exploring and causing events in response to their own actions, and having many choices.
Any word about lightning?
Lightning is a character who supports the backbone of the story. Samsara makes an appearance, and there are times you can control her.
New main characters?
A new male character to join the lead female in the form of Noel.
There are lots of changes in the battle system – you can for example have monsters in your party?
It’s intended to be more strategic with you able to play by combining different roles. Monsters take different roles, and with their inclusion you can make your own composition. There are also other elements included – you can replay it now.
New game+ sort of thing?
Yes, and other elements which will make replaying an interesting experience. For example, this will be the first Final Fantasy title with multiple endings.
