Squre Enix has summoned a new Final
Fantasy XIII-2 trailer guiding would-be adventurers on successful monster
hunting and training. With over 150 foes to fight and collect, it's
one the game's meatiest features. Find out out how you can make it
work for your in this “Master of Monsters” video.
Hold up — where's cactuar? We're sure
there's a Cactuar. And by that we mean there better be a Cactuar.
As depicted in the
video, Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII sequel will lean heavily
on capturing monsters and bending them to the player's whim. Once
collected, non-human party members can be evolved, outfitted, linked
to special quick time moves, and even infused (read: fed alive) to
other monsters to increase their skill sets.
aside, the monster-collecting feature appears to be a fairly deep
component, and it could conceivably add hours to the game for
completionists. Witness the other changes in store for Final Fantasy
XIII-2's combat system in the recently released "Enhanced Battle System" video, or follow us over the first five hours of the
upcoming sequel in our latest hands-on preview.
