For players who finished Final Fantasy XIII, the game puts Lightning as the main character as she finds her long lost sister, Serah. This time, in the upcoming sequel, the situation shifts as Serah will be the lead character of the upcoming sequel.
I bet that just like Tidus was the "main" character in FFX when it should have been Yuna, it'll be the same this time with Noel.
That's stupid. The games storytelling mechanics wouldn't have worked if Yuna was the main character.
Yeah, because she was getting kidnapped all the time. You're not wrong in that gameplay wise Tidus was the main character, the one who's eye the player saw the world through, but in the full sense everything was all about Yuna. And imagine if, as the main character, they showed Yuna growing from someone needed to be protect into a protector? After all that was her role in game; someone who was sacrificing herself for the benefit of the world. Traveling with Auron who knew that the Pilgrimage was a crock that had to stop. @HeavenlySnipes: In that same vain given how she was in XIII, what little was shown anyway, do you really want Serah's perspective?
timid way she acted in FFX, I wouldn't want them telling me I was supposed to be her.
Tidus look like a girl didnt he cry in that game lol
Do most guys not cry from time to time?
serah was so garbage to play with, i rushed through all the parts with her to get a new main. lightning was fun and towards the end her attacks were crazy. ill see how this turns out but i doubt im getin this 1 day 1. i want vs 13 and kh3
Serah was playable in FFXIII?
all the parts when i was stuck with her on my team and not lightning. and i had to fight with her and she died ... lol nvm i was thinking Vanille. Disreguard comment above.
it seems to me that square enix just likes dumping money down the drain.
Well, overall as a company they haven't don't too well; but despite how some people may have felt about XIII it did do fairly well for them. I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I enjoyed XIII enough that I'm looking forward to the sequel.
The reason FFXIII felt linear was because there wasn't any world. They basically just guided you through levels, I didn't feel like I was part of a world. The world in FFXIII looks interesting but not showing it off by having different towns with identities, different explorable environments etc.. made FFXIII feel like they were presenting the game FPS style. Go through level (cutscene) go through level (cinematic boss fight) go through level....
This seems to be one of the main things that they worked on for this sequel.
Maybe only two playable character in FFXIII-2??Noel&Serah? FAIL-
I had read in some interview that Lightning will eventually be a playable character at some point in the game. Unforunately I don't remember the source that I read the interview from.
Lightning's playable, here's a vid.
same music same battles probably same monsters same gay sounded actors lighting was sexy and y the hell can i use only 1 summon per person 6 altogether ff12 had like 15 summons com on son
I couldn't stand Serah the little that she was in the game. Really wish they killed her off and ended the game on a cliffhanger so it didin't seem like this game was just a tacked on cash in. Lightning was a decent main character and by far the most interesting of a cast full of scrubs. Really hope it doesn't take forever to swap out party members in 13-2 so I can boot Serah put as soon as possible. Edit: agreed! At least we don't have to worry about vanille coming back... I hope. SE's writing has been shotty at best so I can be definite that they would throw in a lame resurrection plot.
LoL so true! Serah and Vanille were in a combat to death to settle who was the most annoying character in the game... But Vanille won because she was a playable character while Serah was present in just a couple of cut-scenes. BTW where is Snow anyway? Why is Serah in this "dangerous adventure" with another man? You know I hate...
Can't wait for this one a must buy on day one for me
what's happen to snow ?
my guess is that snow is in the same place as lighting
I was under the impression Noel was the main character or that it was a joint effort between Serah and him. Okay then... Why do so many people care who Serah adventures with or screws? She isn't real...Maybe and honestly hopefully Snow is dead.
