Square Enix UK's just put its official seal on Final Fantasy XIII-2, promising it "exceeds Final Fantasy XIII in every aspect".
Didn't they also say that Final Fantasy XIII was like the most important thing to ever happen to the human race? ...How'd that prophecy turn out, btw?
i think this is the Second Half part of the Original "EXCLUSIVE" Final Fantasy XIII.... but... cutted latter to fit on X360... More Money from MS, and more money becouse they make 2 games from 1!!!!
Can't wait 'till they shaft 50% of the game's content for the sake of keeping up with another console's inferior space-capacity. Not looking forward to this AT ALL 'till it's an exclusive, i don't buy half-assed versions and sigh how much better it could have been, just like XIII.
maybe this version has the Towns :O And the Next Year: Exclusive PS3: Final Fantasy XIII Complete Edition: XIII&XIII-2
im pissed off i cant go anywhere on the net for final fantasy 13 with out getting comments bombarding it for what it is it annoys me so much if you dont like the game so much why don't you all just go the hell away even on neo gaf its i didnt like fina fantasy 13 but im gonna get this anyway even though i only know it has lightning in it its annoying
You think wrong. It is still funny how people are constantly bashing SE. But they refuse to see that the "badness" of FF XIII had nothing to do with MS, but only with SE not doing their jobs.
^ It's the most limited FF game ever. They didnt need to cut out content till those rumored talks with MS then they announced FF13 will also be on the 360. It's also the first FF game to hold your hand for longer than 5+ hrs into the game not to mention the auto attack button in which you just press X the whole time to win while moving forward in a straight line till the next enemy showed up.
"cutted"...really? but well, seeing as fans are saying FFXIII is just average and not up to FF standards with no towns, auto attack, linear etc. doing something better than THAT is not THAT hard!
You guys need to grow up. FF was bad because it was horribly designed. Nothing that the blu-ray capacity could have fixed.
@Objective Actually if you read up you'll find most of it's 'design' was influenced by how it was set to be on 4 discs. Basically backtracking and the entire concept of an 'overworld' type thing, was removed from the game because they didn't want users switching discs as they travelled across the world. So rather than that, they segmented the game... which is what the majority tend to complain about. Not that that's all the games problems... although it is the cause of a large portion of them.
Yea, exceeding garbage doesn't sound too impressive or difficult for that matter.
No actually they never, it was just you who hyped it and then bought in to your own hype. That's how stupid you are.
just sounds like all the stuff they cut out of FF13-1 due to DVD...
Because saying "it's the exact same crap" isn't a good business decision.
I remember when they said : We wont release FFXIII DLC because the game is PERFECT and complete as it is.. HAHAHAHAHA look at this! they really lie straight into fans face while not giving a shit...wow SE this is soo low.
Hopefully they keep the battle system and exceed in everything else. In my oppionion this was one of the best turn based rpg battle systems i have ever used.
FFX-2 sucked so much ass, wasn't even half the game FFX was and now that you made crappy FF13, you think that I'm dumb enough to buy this turd? The story, gameplay, characters, and level up system in FF13 is the worst in the series and your making a sequel?!!!! Fuck you square, die a horrible death. I hope you go bankrupt on this one.
well thats kind of the point of making sequels.....to improve upon your first game. ff13 wasent all that bad. its not the highlight of the series but its a decent game. its a great concept that just needed to take a different direction than what was released. thats where ff13-2 comes in to play. hopefully they listen to the complaints and go back to the roots of what makes a great final fantasy game. so seriously quit whining as you have no idea what ff13-2 is going to be like yet.
You couldn't have said it any better Christheredhead!! I love FF XIII & it had it's flaws but I really enjoyed it & I'm playing it again,I can't wait for the new medieval style Lightning kicking something or someone's ass!!
No sir FF13 wasn't in no way shape or form halfways decent, It was littery dog poop. How old are you? Do you remeber what a real FF game is like? this game was a waste of life, money, and most important of all, respect for the Final Fantasy name.
@JoelEH What does my age have to do with anything? would it make a difference to you if i were 12 or 65+ years old? if you must know im 22. i have played and currently own every final fantasy from FF1 till now. that includes all snes, gba, ds, psp, and ps3 releases. so im sorry that you didn't enjoy the game but it was still a decent game. it doesn't hold true to the final fantasy series as they decided to take the series in a different direction that honestly didn't work very well. personally i didn't like the game all that much but it was still enjoyable to me. like i said im glad they are making 13-2. i hope to see an improvement and go back to some classic FF gameplay. the premise of 13 was great but the execution was lacking so there is room for major improvement and a really great game.
I hope your kidding right, it was praised as a true sequel. That game was good my friend both ffx and ffx2
Yeah, i tried FFX-2 and it basically crapped on everything that FFX made me to believe.
more ENIX then Square but yea.. i feel you
Even in linearity? XD
Hahaha, +bubbles for Funny~
Let's hope so.
lol next winter.....
In square enix time that is 2015.
this is looking like ffx 2 with the girly-ness
From two images?GTFO.
hell yes from 2 images ffxiii was already on the feminine side ill be you good money this will be even worse
I see two MAJOR things wrong here. First, they are making FF XIII-2, and second they are making a 360 version.
Guys stop bitching and wait till the freaking games comes out and you have played it then you can bitch if you want.
I realize that the fans were disappointed with FFXIII ( and you cant blame 'em ), but I had a lot of fun with FFXIII ( even with all the linearity ). For me this is a welcome addition but I just hope SE keeps versusXIII as first priority.
lol. that's what SE said about FFXIII. It exceeds all FF. And look what happened.
lol sure it will.... actually wait there was nothing good about xiii in the 1st place -_-'
another shit in the series , come on square enix continue destroying the serie
if this game doesn't improve on the first one then its a no go for me.
ok i'm a little confused.. is this the one where this guy wearing a black suit with spiky black hair(vague description?) was speaking to a girl , and was using a tank to fight enemies and fighting a bunch of mini dragon like creatures and oh a little bit of him was shown in a building walking until a bunch of soldiers interrupted him with an explosion?
woops no this is the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watc... it's called versus !!
nonlinear + cities and you got a winner.
Ive already lost respect for SE in regards to making quality games. Versus is the only game that im currently interested that they make and can change my view about them
I know must of you guys have a bad taste in your mouth from the las ff13, but i personally liked that game, for some odd reason, the story was unique from any ff13, similar like ffx story. Ues that game did suck and the man in game game looks like a total fag, but im pretty excited to "sse" what enix means about a total turn around, you never know. This game might rock!
Whatever, I don't have any faith in this or Versus XIII being anywhere near as good as we expect them to be. SE lost their way a long time ago.
FF13 yes nof aith in that FF13VS on the other hand looks amazing and being made by Nomura who hasnt made a horrible game yet.
Its too early to start on FFXIII-2. They still have to work on fixing their errors and get their mind right on what they did wrong on 13. It was just so awful for me it was unplayable. As a gamer and consumer I could care less how many copies it sold because the one copy I purchased was shit. Lucky I only paid 20 for it from amazon and sold it back for 20.75. They have to get new talent because the team they have now make only mediocre games. A lot of people were unhappy with what they did and surely won't jumop on their next game too soon until they hear it is actually worth it. Stop trying to be like the west and be original. People liked japanese games because they were different but now their games remind me of those crappy japanese anime style of cartoons they tried to make here in the west. It just doesn't work. Stick to what you know.
exceeds in everything but anticipation! I've just came to accept that square enix have lost their touch.
For all you guys saying that you like XIII.... *SLAP* =|
For you homosexual that say that you don't like XIII based on other peoples opinions SLAP
Final Fantasy XIII-2 'exceeds FFXIII in every aspect'.... Like if it's hard... many PSN/XBLA games did that a long time ago. I hated FF XIII....
There was so much wrong with ffxiii it won't be hard for SE to exceed it. What makes an rpg good for me is the story, characters and exploration. One thing I hate about JRPG is that I refuse to spend a week leveling up my character with repetitive fighting just to beat a boss so the story can continue. In ffvii you didn't have to fight a weapon for the story to continue....hopefully SE has learned something from there mistakes. Reason why western developers have pretty much taken the rpg crown.
Whilst I think FFXIII is a great game, it was a let down and failed to live up to my high expectations. Without sounding like a troll, this game would have probably been better had it fully utilised the PS3's hardware. I thought the combat was decent, but I did prefer what I saw in the original E3 2006 trailer. As with XIII-2, I'm surprised it was announced so soon with a winter 2012 release date, but I am skeptical considering Versus XIII isn't even out yet. How about you concentrate on that first, SE?
I am guessing that versus may actually release this year since this game is coming next year
It could be next year, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if Square-Enix announced a 2015 release later on, because it took 4 years for the original to come out after its first trailer.
Remember, they also had to develop the engine and code. Adn they said they had to cut out tons of stuff from FF13. This should take less time. 2-3 years tops (depends when they started working on it)
Love to know how exactly. Especially with any game footage shown...
OMG OMG OMG I'm away from the computer and this happens ?! First Versus XII trailer and now FF13-2. I am amazed but skeptical. Hopefully it won't be a linear mess.
No way in hell this game is coming out this winter.
For the people that think ms gimped 13 you guys are nuts. 13 sucked because the game was piss poor. There have been plenty of excellent rpgs on the 360 with twons and open world settings. Trolls just want to hate on ms regardless of the truth. When versus comes out and is no better then what? I could care less how either is but don't blame aa console manufacture for a devs mistakes.
Sounds like this winter can't wait Fuck what a hater say
