Final Fantasy XIII-2 PAX 2011 (Moogle, pink hair, sparkles) trailer rulez

Before opening hands-on time with Final Fantasy XIII-2 to PAX attendees, Square Enix unveiled a new trailer mixing cinematic elements, exploration, and combat. We shall call it the Final Fantasy XIII-2 PAX 2011 trailer. We watched all two minutes and change of it and aren't any close to figuring out what happened to XIII's protagonist, Lighting, but we're confident her younger sister Serah will find her soon enough - obviously Serah won't be able to deal with a creature as powerful as Atlas with just her ridiculously constructed Moogle crossbow.

As far as we know, this is the first FF trailer to ever show the main character trip and fall. It's hardly an encouraging sign, but maybe through the course of the game Serah will discover that she's stronger than she thinks. Then again, maybe she won't. Final Fantasy XIII-2 launches next January for PS3 and 360.

  • OMFG SHE JUMPED - August 27, 2011 8:12 a.m.

    Well, maybe I'm wrong, but I think I saw her jump at a non scripted point (Like, you can make her jump anytime, not only at certain points) AND THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME

    All I want to know is where the hell is Versus XIII!? It's the only one I was looking forward too. :(

    Even though Snow has yet to appear, Iam still looking forward to this game. Despite all the crap it got, I loved final fantasy xiii.

    Where the hell is snow?!?!?! SERAH IS MARRIED, isnt she!?!?!?
  • Letter11 - August 26, 2011 6:59 p.m.

    They probably won't tell us anything about Snow or the others to ensure we buy the game to find out what happened to them, Lol.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! why did they bring back hope? why?
  • Cyberninja - August 26, 2011 5:53 p.m.

    i didnt hate hope and i loved FF13
  • Clovin64 - August 26, 2011 5:20 p.m.

    After months of wishing for an old squadmate to return, they give us Hope? Really? Just kick me in the stones why don't you...
  • SirNinja - August 26, 2011 7:24 p.m.

    There's a very good chance they'll bring back more former party members than just Hope. And as the saying goes, they'll save the best ones for last.

    Saw this trailer a few days ago=S

    Good trailer, but really? Hope? They tease Hope over Sazh/Fang/Vanille/Snow? Ugh. You think he could have learned to quit being an angsty loser and grow a pair in the three or so years between the two games?
  • RequiemCOTF - August 26, 2011 4:52 p.m.

    Hope got over most of his whininess and angst in the original when he received his Eidolon. And it looks like he's kicking ass in this trailer, so don't dismiss him too quickly.
  • profile0000 - August 26, 2011 4:26 p.m.

    Oh, come on! They are bringing back Hope? Ugh... They pick Hope over Sazh/Fang/Vanille/Snow. I dunno, could he have learned to quit being an angsty loser and grow a pair in the three or so years between the two games?
  • samsneeze - August 26, 2011 3:42 p.m.

    So, they let the whiniest character conceived by anyone ever stay in the game, but Sazh and Fang are nowhere to be found? What the heck happened to Snow. You know, the pedo that was supposed to be marrying Serah? I mean, sure, he was an idiot. But you can't just drop characters like this and bring in new love interest all willy nilly.
  • jcross3 - August 26, 2011 9:45 p.m.

    Agreed. I actually liked Snow in the first game and I am a little upset to see Serah running around with this other dude. I also want Sazh back but I could understand why he wouldn't fight in this since he got his son back.
  • sniper430 - August 26, 2011 3:18 p.m.

    Wait, I hated 13, why do I want this. Stupid Squeenix trailers >.<
  • eliguy83 - August 26, 2011 3:12 p.m.

    Is it just me or was that Hope? This actually looks like it's going to be really interesting.
