FFXIII-2 Director Reveals New Gameplay Feature

A recent Interview with Motomu Toriyama, lead director of the up and coming Final Fantasy XIII-2 title gives us a great insight into a new brilliant and mystifying feature that will be implemented into the game; The Historia Crux, an important new gameplay system used to enable the player to travel through time to affect the past, present and future.

Still not interested, not a bit... Another sorry excuse for a mission based system? Fuck you SE, seriously.

Kurisu2655d ago

I think it looks great. Looking forward to trying it out, travelling through history and unlocking the various multiple endings :)

Tanir2655d ago

really tigerfist? judging before its out? your first complaints were lineararity, now youu have something that can alter the game in alot of ways and your complaining?

game has towns now and from the looks, a far better story and more interesting characters. wtf is wrong with this game?

its no Versus XIII but it certainly looks great, whether you get it at launch or wait till its 20 bucks, i dunno why you would ditch it altogether if your a jrpg fan.

jrpgs are lacking this gen, and with tales of xillia possibly not being localized and a Versus a long way, y deprive yourself?

ff13 wasnt even that bad, seriously, complainers

DA_SHREDDER2655d ago (Edited 2655d ago )

FF13 wasn't that bad? What exactly did you think was good about it? I thought it was horrible for a FF. I never even played a bad FF game till Square and Enix merged and came out with FFX-2. Sad but true.

DragonKnight2655d ago

@DA_SHREDDER: At least FFX-2 is better than FFXIII. Amirite?

Tigerfist2655d ago (Edited 2655d ago )

I'm not judging, I'm just previewing.

Mentioning my "first complaint" would be rather complicated for I haven't expressed myself alot on that matter. But if I must say, my first complaint was probably the combat system (I want my traditional FF combat system back).

Characters and art I don't like or care about, lame dialogs/plot (it's still XIII after all and I can already predict some of the upcoming bullshit...)from the latest instalments.

And Versus XIII? That action RPG with "Final Fantasy" on the cover? Oh fuck me in the neck...

I gave up on Final Fantasy after X-2.

Yes JRPG's are lacking this gen, especially Final Fantasy which is probably the one and only JRPG I care about. Heck, the whole Japanese gaming industry was lacking this gen.

My good old beloved titles?

Resident Evil? FUBAR.

Devil May Cry? Soon to be FUBAR.

Silent Hill? It's getting there...

Final Fantasy? Oh yeah it's FUBAR...

And no, I won't be depriving myself from anything, beeing a fan doesn't mean that I have to cater to shitty games for the sake of it, I'l just have to deal with it and move on with other stuff till someone gives me a good reason to follow a Final fantasy game yet again.

PS: Yes, Final Fantasy XIII was that bad and one could go on for ages on the "why's" and the "how's".

RedDead2655d ago (Edited 2655d ago )

Look Tigerfest, I agree, FFXIII was an abomination, it was the most repetitive game i've played(yes even more than Assassins Creed 1 and Far cry 2). Can't believe I sat through 20 hours of it before returning it to the store

But 13-2 actually does look improved quite alot, and KH battle system has gotten good with Birth by sleep imo. All the bad stuff from Xiii is gone with 13-2 as far as I can see, except Team NORA(FUUUUUU-), and Versus has EVERYTHING I want from an FF with a different battle system.

Who [email protected] cares how bad the first game was? You do realize that this is a different game right? It's as if you guys have ran out of things to b!tch about, so now you keep spouting "but, but, but... the first game sucked."

Going by your logic, devil may cry 3 should have sucked. As well as the new Mortal Kombat, the dark knight, and so on.

My point is that you shouldn't assume a sequel is going to suck before it's even out.(or any game for that matter.)

And yes, we get it, FFXIII wasn't good. But the game came out almost 2 years ago. Time to stop being so over-dramatic and let that sh!t go already.

whooooaaaaaa, so basically ur a strict turn based dude then?

cuuuuuz saying that Versus XIII is gonna suck even though it has tons of characters, huge world maps, vehicles, awesome art direction etc. i mean really? just cuz the combat is kingdom hearts styled? ouch man hahaha. someone is picky.

and for my personal record, i havent liked an FF game since 8. 9 sucked imo, 10 sucked, 12 was the worst and 13 was ok

DragonKnight2655d ago

Can I go back in time and make FFXIII a better game?

Tigerfist2655d ago

That and saving the Legacy of Kain series.

Lirky2655d ago

Im sure ffxiii and ffxiii-2 will be great. I just think that square enix inbetween of taking such a big risk, square enix should of released at least 1 final fantasy game inbetween the ffxiii and ffxiii-2 timeline.

Square enix should had released lets see a final fantasy game that had no sequel or a different rpg like in the past square released saga frontier and many other random rpgs. But final fantasies always need a 1 game start,middle, and end.

richierich2655d ago

FFXIII-2 Mulitple endings? sounds like FFX-2 all over again

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2655d ago

Honestly, it seriously looks like they are putting in an effort to please the fan complaints on the last game. This mgiht actually turn out alright, I like time travel :)

Bleach2655d ago

The scary thing is, you're probably not joking.

This game looks worse and worse with every trailer/interview/preview

silkrevolver2655d ago

And I agree entirely. I’m very excited for FFXIII-2

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2655d ago

Yeah, I'm not. Like I understand the complaints with the first game, and I agreed with them entirely, but they seem to be answering those complaints. Non-linearity, towns/cities, even the combat system looks slightly revamped.
