Square Enix Shows Two Final Fantasy XIII-2 Trailers at Tokyo Game Show

Mystery man from the logo gets a first introduction.


Square Enix usually gives just one trailer to its games at Tokyo Game Show. For Final Fantasy XIII-2, they prepared two different trailers.

As reported at Famitsu.com, the trailers are respectively for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game. The PS3 version features the Mai Fukai theme song Yakusoku no Basho. The 360 version features the Cherise theme song New World.

The differences between the two trailers go beyond just the theme songs, though. While the two have similar looking battle scenes, Square Enix included a different selection of event scenes.

As we detailed earlier, the event scenes include our first look at Hope and Snow. They also show a new blonde-haired young female character named Yuru. The mysterious man from the game's logo is revealed to be "Kaias," someone who apparently does not die.

The footage shows Yuru and Kaias traveling together. But it also shows Yuru meeting up with Serah and friends.

Famitsu spotted a few time-related elements in the game's event scenes. The site observed phrases like "Paradox" and "Time Contradiction." This made them speculate that perhaps the game will have some time paradox elements due to the time travel component that sees Noel and Serah travel back and forth between time periods.

Other scenes showed town residents turning into Cie'th (what becomes of the game's l'Cie characters if they don't fulfill their "focus" mission) and Lighting saying something along the lines of "this is a future that I was not able to protect."

The Xbox 360 trailer apparently ends with Kaias doing something to a fallen Noel. Unfortunately Famitsu didn't share specifics, so we're going to have to wait for the trailers to be released at large to see for ourselves!
