Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailer, now in English

We’ve been pretty excited about Final Fantasy XIII-2 at the old GR corral since it was revealed earlier this week. The only downside was the game was revealed at a Japanese event and many of us just don’t understand the language, so all we could do was look at the pretty pictures. But no more! Square-Enix UK just released an English Language version of the trailer. Behold!

Obviously this has some spoilers for FFXIII, so don’t say you weren’t warned.


Pretty nice, huh? But wait, there’s more! In our excitement for XIII-2 being announced, we forgot to show you the new trailer for Versus XIII. Yes, it still exists and the trailer shows the PS3-exclusive has some interesting gameplay on top of stunning graphics. See for yourself:

And let’s not forget Final Fantasy Type-0, formerly known as Agito XIII, the third part of that wacky FABULA NOVA CRYSTALLIS business. Originally planned for phones, it’s heading to the PSP and is the first PSP title to be on two UMDs.

If you thought FF might take a break after launching XIII (yay!) and XIV (boo!) last year, you were mistaken.

    I did love FFXIII, so I'm absolutely looking forward to the sequel. And Versus also looks pretty good, so might have to keep an eye on that one.

    I love XIII so much! It was one of my favorite games of last year! So, so excited for this!

    Holy-effing-crap, I think I just OD'd on fanboy joy. XIII-2 looks and sounds amazing. Wasn't Etro the goddess who (SPOILERS) turned Fang and Vanille into crystals 500 years ago? In either case, it sounds like this is going to be awesome. Versus-XIII still looks cool, although I wonder if SE couldn't make up its mind what genre it wanted the game to be. It looks like a hybrid RPG/3rd person shooter/action game, almost as if someone ate God of War, Call of Duty, Metal Gear Solid, and Crisis Core together and pooped. Gonna keep my eyes on this one. And as for Agito (Type-0, pardon me)... I dunno. The trailer isn't doing it for me. Agito's always been the one that I'm on the fence about, at least out of the three main XIII games, but I dunno. I have mixed feelings about it. Part of it may have to do with the fact that the trailer's in Japanese, but the setting and gameplay look like lesser-clones of Crisis Core. Oh well. I guess I just have to keep my eyes on these three.

    "How do you make a Sequel of a Sequel?" they did it with halo and the made a prequel of a prequel with it as well :| im happy for ff13-2 and im happy to finally see more of versus 13 (anyone else think that girl looked like Aerith? type 0 looked cool as well and im happy its coming to DS but i probably wont get it myself until i see someone else play it and hear them orgasm about it

    I really should play Final Fantasy XIII, but since my only option is to play it on the 360 I get disheartened knowing I'll be playing an inferior version.
  • Letter11 - January 21, 2011 12:06 a.m.

    Thanks GR! I can't even remember the last time a trailer got me so hype. Versus 13 looks freaking amazing! I hope I can play it in Japanese cause I hear Tamaki's voice actor from Host Club, and he's awesome. I thought these games were supposed to have a common thread though, they all seem very separate from each other.

    How do you make a Sequel of a Sequel?
  • Ilyere - January 20, 2011 11:50 p.m.

    So I heard that all the cut content from FFXIII is going into the sequel? No wonder they were so quick to announce a sequel. I expect no less than perfect this time round, though that may be asking for too much... Conference = Best birthday ever (How sad...)
  • EvilChicken - January 20, 2011 11:07 p.m.

    @Clovin64 Have you played Kingdom Hearts, if you did I just want you to know this Kingdom Hearts combat system = Final Fantasy Versus XIII combat system. Kingdom Hearts was an amazing game with a really great combat system, and since Final Fantasy Versus XIII is made by the same creator of Kingdom Hearts, I expect a great game. Then again that's what I thought of Final Fantasy XIII, but that wasn't made by the same people as Kingdom Hearts
  • Reaperman64 - January 20, 2011 11 p.m.

    Final Fantasy 13 was great, it just didnt hide the linearity like the other FF games, which are all linear...loved ff13, either my secind or third fav of Final fantasy
  • Clovin64 - January 20, 2011 10:35 p.m.

    I poured almost 140 hours into FFXIII and I expect no less from XIII-2. as for Versus XIII, it looks interesting, but I hope it turns out to be more than simply Dirge of Cerberus with a sword.
  • Manguy17 - January 20, 2011 10:21 p.m.

    balls, i was so excited i didnt read the "this has spolers" bit until halfway through the video when i realised things were being spoiled, yet nothing i didnt guess showed up..now must i not watch this until i play another 15+ hours of FF-XII? or do i risk watching further than 0:42?
  • renkun67 - January 20, 2011 10:18 p.m.

    They should change Final Fantasy Versus XIII to "Michael Bay Presents Final Fantasy: Modern Warfare: Freedom Unite"...
  • TheWerebear - January 20, 2011 8:59 p.m.

    I agree 100% with everybody that was disgusted with XIII but to be entirely honest, this trailer looks like the game just might redeem the title.
  • venom65437 - January 20, 2011 8:47 p.m.

    Still not impressed. I have to see this game deliver before I'll let SE have any more of my money. FF13 was an abomination.
  • Sleepingdragon - January 20, 2011 8:42 p.m.

    ok? they translated it into english and i still dont get what the trailer meant. Anyway is it just me or does every Final Fantasy sequel must have the main girl character with a half skirt?
  • MkLangley - January 20, 2011 8:31 p.m.

    Looks amazing, i love her valkirie amorm and the goddess Etro reference.
  • paganpoet - January 20, 2011 8:26 p.m.

    I'm interested to see how they alter the battle system in XIII-2. That was by far the highlight of the game for me, maybe the best battle system in a JRPG ever.
  • HereComesTheHypeTrainCHOOCHOO - January 20, 2011 8:24 p.m.

    Looks like it has Kingdom Hearts style gameplay with the gorgeous visuals that rival FF13. Sign me up! Probably won't reach North America for a year or two though.
  • usedforglue - January 20, 2011 8:21 p.m.

    I wish they would just remake ff7 finally instead of putting out games I'm not that interested in. FF13 didn't hold my interest for more than about 6 hours before I sold it. Maybe I should have finished it, but the game just wasn't doing it for me.
