Final Fanasy XIII Gameplay Revealed
New trailer shows off eye-popping visuals for the series' high-def debut.
by Alex Simmons, IGN UK

UK, January 28, 2009 - Square Enix has shown off the first in-game footage for Final Fantasy XIII in a trailer just released on the game's official site.

During the two-and-a-half-minute clip we're treated to our first proper look at the game world, which bears a remarkable resemblance to the 'real' world in The Matrix trilogy, with a Nebuchadnezzar-style ship gliding gracefully through the green-hued metropolis, in front of a hooded Vanille.

The action then kicks in with Square proving once again it's still towers head and shoulders above its peers when it comes to CG animation, with a battle between Lightning and a squad of General Grievous-style robots demonstrating why the Final Fantasy series – and in particular Tetsuya Nomura's distinctive art style – has won the hearts of gamers across the globe.

The main action begins with a conflict on a high-speed train, where Lightning takes out several troops with some sort of personal electric field that heightens her abilities and allows her to perform some flashy acrobatics. Other highlights of the CG elements of the trailer include a hi-octane fight between the four main characters – Lightning, Snow, Vanille and Sazh – and a bunch of machinegun-toting troops, plus an epic scrap in which the hot blonde takes on a giant scorpion mech.

But what of the gameplay? Initial impressions are that the combat system will be a natural progression of that seen in Final Fantasy XII, with players cuing up turn-based-style attacks that then play out almost in real-time. The effect is nothing short of spectacular with the battles looking more dynamic and action-packed than in previous Final Fantasy games. There seem to be hints of Kingdom Hearts action as well, given how Lightning knocks an enemy skyward and jumps up to follow it, continuing the combat while airborne.

Other hard facts are few and far between apart from a release date of 2009 in Japan, with a worldwide date yet to be confirmed. Story elements are hinted at but not directly revealed. From the looks of the trailer, an oppressive force is attempting to forcefully remove residents of the Cocoon into the Pulse area -- two sectors of the Final Fantasy XIII world that seem to be at odds. Regardless, we certainly hope it comes this year because judging by the trailer it's going to be a return to form for Square's much-loved series, which has gone off the boil somewhat following a string of solid but not brilliant handheld remakes. But don't just take out word for it, check out the movie for yourself

S'alright. Maybe I'm not making a big deal out of this because we'll probably grow old and die before it ever comes out.
