Final Fantasy XIII scans

Final Fantasy XIII scans

Japanese magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump reveals new screenies from role-playing games Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII. It is possible to distinguish some summons like Ifrit and Shiva Siren, at least if you use common sense.

Update: added a few V-Jump scans

Sorry to tarnish your common sense, but that is not Shiva, that is siren apparently, carbuncle is the green guy, ifrit is obvious mind. There are more scans at NeoGaf. Shiva is the bicycle remember?

Anyway, if any of the scans I've seen today are real time, this is going to be mighty impressive.

Final Fantasy games have always nailed their visuals. It's whether the game has any soul that let's the most recent iterations down for me.

Since when have Final Fantasy games NOT looked impressive? As for the "soul" thing, the only FF after 6 to have it is 9, so I don't know see how this can be any worse than 7, 8, 10 etc. (all good games regardless)

I really stopped caring what happened to the characters and plot after the first disc in 9.

all of the images are CG..it was described as being CG from the trailer, and a few other images ive seen confirm it...no doubt it will look good tho

Yep it s siren

"Will the beautiful heroin called Lightning lead earth to its destruction ?
The shockful FF13 story is where the truth about the summons is made clear."

"Catch new mysterious beeings"

ant that s it for the news

Those real-time screens look a lot like Mass Effect, with slightly more detail. But I wonder how the game will look while walking around the environments, or in terms of NPCs and animation.

cant wait...

doesnt actually look anything like ME to me...that section wasnt up and running on ps3 yet...it was made before the engine was up and running on ps3. If it looks like that, graphically it is much more impressive than ME

Can't wait for this game! This team is TOTALLY AWESOME, I can't believe Square handed FF to Matsuno :(

This game will rock! Can't wait for it in 2009
Commented on 2008-01-17 20:51:30
Ifrit and Shiva? Oh yes!
Commented on 2008-01-17 21:07:00
Looks pretty good. Just a shame we won't be this until 2009 at the earliest. Makes me wonder why they even bothered to show this game off so early on when it's so far away... :/

kinda strange if that would be siren either way.. that picture looks as though it was a real human being.. perhaps its neither and its a friend of one of the characters in the game :)
Commented on 2008-01-17 23:25:18
looks really good. is the gameplay still turn based or real time?

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (7 Hours ago)
