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:
