When it was first announced, all we had was the Japanese trailer. And because there was plenty of dialogue, some viewers felt they were missing something important.
Well, you can view that Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailer now in high-definition and with the English voice; Lightning narrates and although she doesn't really give us any hints about the sequel, it does help. However, if you have not finished FFXIII and you intend to at some point, there are some definite spoilers in the video. You probably guessed that if you caught the Japanese version but we just figured we'd warn you.
There's just something about that trailer that irks us but at the same time, it has that classic Square-Enix polish. We have asked what "evolved" means and the more we think about it, the more we think the developers are heading in the wrong direction. But who knows? Maybe they'll surprise us all and deliver something that plays like an RPG; maybe it won't feature the real-time combat found in Versus XIII .
Until we catch the gameplay details, FFXIII-2 is up in the air.
