Even though the entire gaming world is Killzone 2 -crazy right now, time marches on and this industry switches gears insanely fast. It won't be long before Final Fantasy XIII begins to dominate the headlines, which means that any and all new info is always appreciated.
You need to check out this video over at Kombo; it features FFXIII producer Yoshinori Kitase talking about the epic RPG, and yes, there's plenty of game footage. It would help if you could understand Japanese, but the video is cool enough, as you may spot some never-before-seen footage that is bound to intrigue all the role-playing lovers out there. We assume you've already seen the lengthy DKS3713 trailer , and this Kombo video clearly holds some of the same scenes. But there are a few differences, and we just wish this latest behind-the-scenes look was of a higher quality. At this point, we have to assume that everyone is convinced that FFXIII will be a visually glorious production, but we're really trying to find gameplay footage. Perhaps when the demo releases in Japan with the Blu-Ray release of "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children," we'll start seeing some video snippets online. But that's still a few months off, so we'll have to be satisfied with this for now.
On a related note, is anyone worried that the seemingly more impatient generation will balk at anything with the depth and length of FFXIII? Everything is faster and more in-your-face these days and although FFXIII will most certainly be pretty, it should most certainly have an intricate storyline and battle system. We're just hoping the new "twitch-gamer" crowd doesn't have a negative impact…
