So the mysterious clock that appeared on www.finalfantasy13game.com a little under a week ago has finally ended. After a brief hiccup waiting for the video to actually become accessible, viewers were treated to a cinematic/gameplay hybrid trailer.
The first half features an skirmish between the main characters and their PSICOM foes in a oppressive, futuristic city. Nothing too far from the Final Fantasy norm so far. The visuals are beautiful and it looks like this game will be keeping up the series’s tradition of jaw-dropping cut scenes.
The trailer really shines with the unveiling of in-game gameplay footage. Damage counters fill the screen like a swarm of bees as the characters attack various enemies, including a giant wolf-scorpion robot. Also seen in action is the combo system wherein characters can melee and use magic in the same turn!
The video doesn’t sport any release date, instead going with “In Production.”
