<div class="bbcode_quote_body">The first question on the floor was one to clarify how, if at all, the Xbox 360 release would affect the PS3 version. The short answer is that it won't. Final Fantasy XIII is being developed first for the PS3 in Japan, a region that won't see an Xbox 360 release. The Xbox 360 iteration is a port of the PS3 build, but Square was quick to point out that you can't say this will cause a delay of the PS3 release in America. Separate teams are working on the two versions and both are moving along on schedule. There shouldn't be a delay in any releases.



Previous Final Fantasy games have taken at least six months to bring them from Japan to North America, and then another six months to reach Europe. The team plans on cutting this time down considerably for Final Fantasy XIII. Because of this shorter time, there are no plans for additional content over what the Japanese original has.



There also are no plans to have the games be different on Xbox 360 and PS3. Nothing has been decided for sure yet, but the team is looking at ways to compress the audio and pre-rendered cutscenes that take up a lot of data without affecting the quality when bringing the game from a blu-ray format to the DVDs that Xbox 360 reads.</div>

Square Enix Reveals New FFXIII Info

Square Enix has released some new tidbits of information regarding Final Fantasy XIII. The trailer, which the company has shown off in various lengths since the game's debut, depicts heroine Lightning entering a train carrying citizens set to be deported from the Cocoon. Among those convicts is Vanille, the red-haired girl set to become a member of Lightning's party. Snow, the other playable character featured prominently in various trailers, is the head of a resistance movement fighting against the theocratic government of the Cocoon. In their struggle against the government, the party will not only have to deal with normal soldiers, but also far more potent opposition including powerful officers, weapons and monsters.



All those foes will be visible on the field map. Running into an enemy will trigger an encounter. The transition between exploration and battle will be seamless. As previously mentioned, Final Fantasy XIII employs an enhanced version of the good old Active Time Battle system. Accordingly, battles are command-based. Once a command has been selected, the respective character will execute it immediately. During each turn, a character can only execute a certain number of actions. Each character has a certain amount of action points at his or her disposal. Various commands require one or more action points to execute. If Lighting has three action points at her disposal, she can for instance use three standard attacks (each consuming one action point) or use all three points to cast Fire II. Depending on the order of the commands' input, characters will perform different actions. In the upper right-hand corner of the screen a bonus gauge is visible. Above the gauge the number of successful chain attacks is displayed. The developers haven't shed any light on the workings of this bonus gauge yet, though.



Final Fantasy XIII is set to hit retail store shelves on both sides of the Pacific sometime later this year.</div>

I am very excited for this game, there's never been a mainline FF game I haven't enjoyed.

Final Fantasy XIII looks amazing. However I'm more excited for Versus XIII. Since it will have a more Kingdom Hearts Feel to the gameplay. Never liked JRPG's to start with. Final Fantasy X(&amp; X-2) was the only FF games I ever enjoyed in the past few years.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Final Fantasy XIII Demo is set to be released in March with the Blu-Ray release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. However their will be two versions. Special Edition which get's you the Demo and the normal Edition which doesn't get you the Demo. Special Edition will also include new trailers for all the Final Fantasy games in production.

I'm happy they dropped the battle system from FFXII, but I have to honest, I expected the game to look better from how much they talked up the chrystal tools. I still remember old documents or articles where they claimed that the White engine was able to render near pre-render scenes in real time.



Looked good though, better than most of the other RPGs out now, but not the jump I was expecting.

Man, .... this looks amazing. If it wasn't already announced for 360 I would buy a PS3 for this.

Now We need to See Final Fantasy Versus XIII Gameplay. More excited about Versus than normal XIII. Since suppose to be a more Kingdom Hearts kind of Gameplay.



Everyone bitched about the battle System in XII you knew they had to do something about the battlesystem. This could just be one of the battle Systems. Other Final Fantasy Games had ways to switch to different battle systems if you didn't like the default one.
