Miles to Go Before Final Fantasy XIII-2

I’m actually still playing through FFXIII (where so many fans find 120+ hours to play through these blockbusters seemingly each week is beyond me) and have enjoyed my time with the game so far. I can understand the linear criticism that many have leveled, but I really haven’t felt any negative impact as of yet and have enjoyed learning the battle system, particularly the paradigm shifts and summon assists.

Granted, I’m still getting to know the characters but I do have an early fondness for Lightning, so the news that she will be back in Final Fantasy XIII-2, which Square-Enix broke yesterday, is very welcome indeed. The new “getup” looks great as well! I’m just hoping I’ll have original finished by the game’s “Winter 2011” release here in North America.

A little more from Square-Enix on the announcement:

Production on FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 is underway, and builds upon the best aspects of FINAL FANTASY XIII. In particular, a brand new story and evolved battle system promise to stand out markedly against the standard for high-quality content established by the previous title.
