Final Fantasy XIII trailer

Final Fantasy XIII trailer

Square-Enix FINALLY released a new trailer of Final Fantasy XIII, announcing the demo to be bundled with the new version of the Advent Children movie. And what a trailer it is!
Update 2: It looks like every site out there has posted the video last night, so it should be safe to have it here too. I've captured the Xbox Marketplace trailer, with subtitles.

Looks excellent.

Will be a long wait though before we get a EU version of it.

Why did the combat system just look like a faster paced version of WKC? looks impressive graphically...

I see the Japanese trailer was captured but, any reason why the 360 logo isnt on? just sayin...

Looks absolutely beautiful! I'm really looking forward to playing through this one as I haven't played any of them since FFVII. Too bad we have to wait til 2010.

why should that bother you? just sayin... BTW. it's exclusive to the ps3 in japan.

Uhmm... Yeah. Hope all you JRPGers are happy... I just don't get them or this. But you all seem to like it. Does nothing for me. Looks like a quality title from the graphics... those look polished. Have fun.l

Because they were just advt for the 2009 release which is only in Japan and on the PS3. Xbox 360 and PS3 in Europe and US in 2010.

Are you serious?!? LMFAO!!!!! Only a couple short cutscene clips and the battle clips were ingame!

Are you serious? You can't tell the difference? between 1:05 and 2:15 (give or take a few seconds) It's realtime.

What a looker.

I can't udnerstand why people are so enamoured with this games graphics...it looks alright but it's not THAT good looking. Well unless you are stupid enough to think the CG is realtime, which it is not. Clearly the best looking jrpg this gen though...but that isn't saying much necessarily.
Commented on 2009-01-28 20:35:26
You know, I was actually kinda intrigued by the trailer, 'til they showed the generic battle system. Goes to show that nothing but special effects have happened to this genre.
Commented on 2009-01-28 20:38:03
Simple rule to go by, if it looks crisp and smooth with pixel perfect lighting and cloth physics that dont clip then its CG. Generally if it looks too good to be true, more often than not it is.

I don't see how people can still be confused between what is and is not CG, it's like night and day still and will be for a few generations to come. The models look good but the environments are the easy giveaway with flat geometry and simple textures.

The game looks good, but not THAT good.

the reason i asked is that there were parts that clearly looked pre-rendered, but on a forum i just came from people were saying it was all realtime as though it was a fact.
and i agree, the game doesn't looks all that great, killzone 2 pwns this imo. but that's what you get when you want to go multiplatform(lots of cutbacks). hopefully versus remains exclusive and we'll see if it makes a difference.
my hype for this game just hit an all time low. if SE screw up this game, i don't think they'll ever be able to recover.

These HD videos are converted from the 41MB file on the official site right? The quality of the video doesn't look so good.

It's fairly easy to tell the difference between CG and real time in this case because Square's CG is so high quality. There's a lot of games that may or may not have a mix of CG and there's literally noone that can tell. DMC4 - all real time cutscenes, but you couldn't tell if not for the zoom feature. MGS4 - mostly real time cutscenes, a few prerendered using game assets. Ryu ga Gotoku Kenzan / 3 - there are a lot of cutscenes that may be one way or another, noone but Sega really knows.

looks good. hope theres more to it than just robots and trains though.

anyone know when the Advent Children movie is coming out that has the demo with it?

Then i suggest you go back there and inform them that they are a bunch of retards ;)

April 16 i think. Not 100% sure though.
Commented on 2009-01-28 21:22:49
Alright, I'm on the hype train.

That' looked good.
Commented on 2009-01-28 21:46:57
i generally cant stant the final fantasy series. but that trailer was pretty freaking cool. the combat system, which is still very traditional looking, is a bollock load faster then any of the previous final fantasies (excluding crisis core) to a point where it actually looks fun. might have to give this a go.

still liking the look of Vs more tho.

Why am I not surprise that you said something like that? *sigh* Jesus Megido, I know its ok to have high expectation but damn what is it that your looking for exactly? just curious. I've been around gamersyde for a while and I never read anything about you being impressed yet. lol

On topic : THIS ROCK! Finally some VA. Can't wait to heard some English ones too. Battle system look even faster then X-2. O_o

it does look that good though...look at the behemoth model...Ive played crysis on very good settings and this still impresses me alot...some of the best modelling Ive seen...overall I am really impressed, and we haven't even seen the summons yet...of course its not going to look as good as the cg though... I don't even bother comparing, the ingame graphics have impressed me enough

    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (1 Hour ago)

    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (6 Hours ago)
