Snow is back in upcoming Final Fantasy XIII game with Lightning. See the first scan.
better than the chocobo head he had last time
I actually kinda liked that.
this guy really likes to change his hairstyle doesn't he?
Can't wait for this game, if its better than 13-2 as 13-2 was to 13 it should be awesome edit: They should really do vs 13 before this tho shouldn't they?
13-2 took 1 step forward in the gameplay and everystep back where characters, story and the world were concerned.
i thought it was pretty good, better than 13 in every way in my view, the whole 13 series is one of the worst ff games ive played but still better than most rpg's that come out other than a few rare gems (infinite undescovery, lost oddest, star ocean 4....bar the voice acting, magna cart 2, jsut a few of the great rpg's this gen ;-) )
because people complained about the story providing the context for the gameplay and now they just had to shoehorn in things like world building and atmosphere to appease the crowd who doesn't know how storytelling works
for the love of God Square Enix.. when will you understand enough is enough? @below, open your mouth.. and enjoy the "privilege" of being below.
Dude, shut up. Its getting old.
Not old at all since Square is releasing another unwanted sequel.
They should make Versus XIII already, not another FFXIII spin-off.
Another team is working on that dude. Why can't people understand this?
Ok, but why we must wait almost 7 years?
This comment made my head hurt. Versus 13 is a 13 spin off. It includes Fubulla Nova Crystallis and L'cie. Even Type O was a spin off before they renamed it. It had 13 in it's name.
yeah i know dont think people know what they are on about and are just going by this site hype train.
I know that, maybe I used wrong words. By "FFXIII spin-off" I mean games releated scricte with FFXIII (Lightning and others - FFXIII, FFXIII-2 and now Lightning Returns).
I agree that it is completely ridiculous that it is taking this long and I am extremely excited to see the game in action at E3 but I feel like some people think the same team that is making Lightning Returns is the same team that is supposed to be working on Versus and thinking thats the reason it's taking so long which is not the case.
Squeenix we don't like lightning.
Don't know whether to be pissed or cry over this. Honestly wanted to try for indifference over this piece of crap, but this? Taking established characters well out of their original context, say its a different story yet make the new story so dependent on the original one this new one has no real foundation, no reality.
Lightning is the best. She should be the main character in all of the final fantasy games from now on.
I haven't followed the FFXIII trilogy as closely as others but I thought LR takes place 100s of years in the future, or something. How is Snow still around?
At the end of 13-2 time stopped and people stopped aging.
Oh. Didn't know that. Thanks.
He was L'cie again in 13-2 but also after the ending of 13-2 time doesn't exist no one can die or be born until the world ends which is where this picks up 13 days before the end. Lightning got turned to crystal and its safe to assume snow did too? He wasn't really a big character in 13-2 he really only showed up for one small portion of the game with no real answers to why he's there or what happened to him (his dlc wasn't much of anything either) Noel and hope have already been confirmed as well.
Snow looks like something from Kingdom hearts.
yea kinda reminds me of xemnas,or saix
And so it continues, more Final Fantasy games dumbed down and selling worse than the old GOOD ones, yet Square are too blind to see, if they carry on this way, making games nobody wants they will go bankrupt.
13 actually sold better than some of the older games. SE cashed in on the 13 series. Why do you think they are bothering with a sequel? They see profit in it.
It sold better because it was on multiple consoles and because more people have consoles in this era than back in the PS1 era. Final Fantasy VII was only on PS1 and it sold 9.72 million. Final Fantasy XIII was on PS3 and 360 and it sold a total of 6.92 million. Final Fantasy XIII-2 sold in total of 2.99 million which is less than half of it's prequel. I think that explains to everyone how bad FF13 was. I don't think Lightning Returns is going to sell any higher than what FF13-2 did.
They've made a huge mistake.
I hope they change Noel's look too, he was in the trailer briefly and he looked the same as in XIII-2. Good character. I can picture him with a sort of ponytail or something in this game- sort of like Zhao Yun's hairstyle from Dynasty Warriors 6 onwards.
They did a terrible job with Snow in FFXIII2, and pretty much every other character from xiii. That game was terrible and was a huge mess. This new game will have to do alot to make me want this more than ni no kuni or that new tales of game.
Oh look. More FF13 crap
