The latest issue of Jump has some new information about Final Fantasy XIII.
final boxart? Iv never seen that before?! looks cool..
Not final boxart :p Fan boxart, not too sure why it was used as the image. Hell they haven't even shown the Japanese box art yet.
thats looks like a mock-up of the American box art i believe, European is usually the plain white with the name and logo across the middle. but id expect the us cover to loook kind of like this. on a side note. Where the hell is this game, i'm tired of waiting for this.
They only just reporting these characters huh?? Thought they would of a long time ago since the game is nearly finished for the ps3 anyways..
I wonder, When Final Fantasy XIII releases in Japan will it beat Dragon Quest 9 Sales, Cause japan's game market hasn't been that great for Consoles, and it could explain why there's been a lack of jrpgs overall compared to last gen. Still waiting for Capcom to make a Breath of Fire for the consoles. O and Vanille's weapon? A needle attached to a wire /Fishing Rod....pretty lame, unless if it was like KUNAI WIT CHAIN, Yea I said it. But I iguess ts not as lame as having Shiva as two Individuals and combine into a bike or having characters with names such as Snow, Vanille (sounds like a Porn name) and now a boy named Hope... lol, Creative aren't they.
Hope has got to be the most womenly name ever given to a boy, eh his pose. SE fire the person who name this character now! Even worse than Snow.
the name HOPE for that boy is soooooooooo wrong in so many levels
Isn't Hope more of a uh... girl's name? First we get Snow, which isn't so bad but it's quite a softie name, then next we get Hope, which is like naming your son "Betty".
Damn, I totally forgot about this game...
The whole Vanille fishing rod thing is a mis-translation, her weapon is a type of staff. Watch this vid- http://g4tv.com/videos/3882... they show gameplay around 40secs in and it's the first time you see her in battle with the weapon.
Heres the new image http://finalfantasy-xiii.ne... The name is a little wack but atleast the character designs aren't a bald muscle space marine like 95% of games have these days.
He looks like a mini version of Vaan from FFXII. Don't you think?
and so ffxiii is not looking so promising now, i am getting sick of all the gay feature they keep on adding, i will buy it still but i am expecting it to deliver no more than ffxii (apart from awesome graphics). what i can't figure out is why s-e have lost it so much recently what happened to all the greatness story-wise they used to achieve i'd much rather have better characters and story then this pretty stuff and a rubbish characters with a meh storyline. oh well heres hoping they re-find that magic with ff-vs
I hope the game will prove you wrong. I for one think the story line looks promising. And what makes you think VS will be any different?
I've had the privelege of playing the demo and I can tell you that the character development in this game will be nothing like FFXII and more on the lines of the older games. The battle system is back to the good old turnbased but this is more fast and flashy. The story sounds very promising and judging a JRPG from little tid-bits of info from magazines is pretty foolish. FFXII was made by a new team and FFXIII is being made by the older FFVII-X teams. The reason FFXII wasn't made by the normal team was because the developers were working on games like Kingdom hearts and some had already started with XIII and Versus.
or we just gona hear some news every 4months?!! it is getting boring
Ok I will admit it, starting to sound and look a little like get on your hands and knees and smile like a donought but ffxiii is still showing alot of promise and will still be an awesome game. Lets not shut it done yet cause some of the guys at square try on their mothers clothes when no one is looking! Give it a chance cause it will rock worlds weather straight or bent!
