Slowly, ever so slowly, the shape of all things Final Fantasy XIII is coming into view. Square Enix has seen fit to grace people with a new trailer - this time featuring actual gameplay. The first playable demo is only weeks away and in order to get the RPG juices flowing, Square Enix is cranking up its mighty PR machine. As well as the usual high standard of cutscene footage, this month saw a glimpse of how the game will play.
The very fact that the company has even released gameplay footage can be seen as a milestone in Final Fantasy XIII's development. Square Enix is typically very protective of its new games' mechanics - especially battle systems - so this first glimpse signifies that development is very much in the home straight.
