Final Fantasy XIII-2 demo coming to PSN and XBL next week

January is looking pretty quiet up until the very last day. If you looked at our list of games for the month you’ll notice it’s particularly short, with little between now and January 31 when a few big titles, including Final Fantasy XIII-2, hit retail. If you need something else to tide you over, how about a free demo to one of the month’s big titles, like next week’s downloadable preview of FFXIII-2?

The demo will hit the net January 10 on PlayStation Network, while the 360 demo will appear on Live the next day, January 11. Though Square Enix hasn’t said just what will be in the demo, our bets are on the action-packed Valhalla opening. Hadn’t seen it yet? Then watch our playthrough of the first chunk of the Japanese version below:

    I guess i have to go finish the first one this game is under-rated i think if you gave this game a differnt name lots more ppl would like it ..... does that make sense

    Hey, I realize this is only tangentially related, but why don't you guys call them Full Access Previews/Playthroughs anymore? I preferred that title for these features.

    I'm looking forward to this. I enjoyed XIII, aside from the common story/linearity complaints. The only thing that worries me about XIII-2 is a comment from someone online who claimed to have beaten the Japanese version. They said that you play as Serah and Noel through the entire game, with the main characters from the prior game (including Lightning) only appearing in cameos. I sure hope that isn't true.
