FFXIII to include FFXIV beta code; Hope's summon, Chocobos in leaked Jump scans

SCRAWL: "Next week's Shonen Jump has leaked a bit early, considering it's still Friday, but we have them. The new scans reveal both Hope's summon in Final Fantasy XIII as well as what the beloved Chocobo will look like this time around.

The magazine also reveals that Final Fantasy XIII in Japan will come with beta access to Final Fantasy XIV."

Hope's summon looks like Alexander from FF VIII and FF IX. I am also happy to see Chocobos making a return. Also access to the FF XIV is a good deal.

Stunt3296d ago

Hope's summon's name IS Alexander, lol.

Lucreto3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

It doesn't state it is Alexander but you can tell it is him. It is one of my favourite summons so I am glad it is returning.

Look at Square trying to get smart and chime in on the "Beta help sell game" concept.

sikbeta3296d ago

Everyone loves Chocobos, is there a scientific explanation of WHY?

Somnus3296d ago


It DOES say Alexander in the scan.

just Japan?

1.3 Do you really think Final Fantasy needs help selling?

I am happy to see a chocobo on FFXIII , but this one is pretty weird @[email protected]

Btw i know i saw carbuncle and siren on a pic this means there are 2 more playable characters? or one character can summon more than 1 aeon/esper/thingy?

There will be moogles? (sorry if i ask too much :3)

"Btw i know i saw carbuncle and siren on a pic this means there are 2 more playable characters? or one character can summon more than 1 aeon/esper/thingy?"

- From GAF, everyone seems to believe that Carbuncle and Siren will most likely be "story related" summons and not connected to a particular character. Most people on that site believe Vanille's (the other remaining character whose summon has yet to be revealed) summon will be water based (e.g. Leviathan or something new). Hope that helps!

Julie3296d ago

oh i that is really nice to know story related summons! =) because 1 per character felt like a bit meh... -_-

What about moogles i have yet to see one on FFXIII :(

ty again kupo!

NicCageMYHero3296d ago

One of the thoughts is that the summon is connected (spiritually?) to each playable character, so that's why you cannot mix and match but I agree that 1 for each seems "meh". Hopefully each of those summons are amazing.

I haven't seen or heard anything about Moogles either. I still think a TON of information on characters, summons, spells, etc. have yet to be revealed, so hopefully we'll get a few moogle-like surprises!

meepmoopmeep3296d ago

i'm certain Moogles will make an appearance in one way or another.

Julie3296d ago

I hope meep, i was playing FFIX and there are moogles everywhere so cute! and funny =)

By the way on FFIX Eiko told me that moogles are faeries :3
And Quina told me that he/she was hungry and wanted to eat some frogs , i wonder if they taste good :p

Lets Hope that FFXIII have some nice minigames but the thingy i want most is a card game like tetra master

meepmoopmeep3296d ago

did you say FFIX?

that's my favorite! i even legally changed my name to Bobby Corwen!

i can't wait until VIII & IX get on PS Store so i can download and play them on my PSP
i have them on disc but.. playing VII on PSP was so awesome!

and hooray for Moogles, kupo!

Montblanche FTW!

If you think FF games in Japan needs help then you haven't a clue what you are talking about.

ABizzel13295d ago (Edited 3295d ago )

@ nycredude

Obviously you must be one of the two people following me, because you ALWAYS seem to be around to make some ignorant comment no matter what I say.

Where did I say anything about Sqaure needing help in Japan. If you had any kind of brain you and the other 3 idiots (probably moreganfell and thedisagreefairy) would have realized that I meant Square made a smart move by adding the FF14 beta to the game, since it gives gamers even more incentive and justification for purchasing FF13.

[email protected]$$ who doesn't know Final Fantasy sells. It would be nice if you quit stalking me. I know I'm hard to resist, but I don't want you or moreganfell so leave me alone.

I thought FF14 was being released spring of 2010?

rob60213295d ago

I think FF13 is targeted for Spring 2010, All that's been said about FFXIV is that it's supposed to come out in 2010, maybe spring 2010 on the beta, with a late in the year release.

zerocrossing3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

hope they do pack a FF-XIV beta in with FF-XIII im just hoping they fix some of the little probs in it i had with FF-XI either way it looks to be a great early 2010.

Edit @ koehler83

Damn thats right... wonder what the chances of having a western beta anytime soon is gunna be.

koehler833296d ago


But only in Japan.
