Learn Everything You Need To Know About Final Fantasy XIII-2

Thanks, Square Enix. I spend all this hard time putting together multiple posts detailing all the great new features of upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2, and you go and sum everything up in one trailer AFTER I had put all that work in. I’m telling mom!

I’m kidding of course, but for those of you that are still a bit up in the air about how the new game will work, Square has put together a very helpful trailer showing off new gameplay mechanics, catching players up to speed about the events between the first and second game and also introducing some of the new characters.

Have a look below.

If that doesn’t do enough for you, we’ve also got a fresh batch of screenshots in the gallery at the bottom of the page showing off everything from simple menus to mysterious new characters to GIANT CACTUARS!

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is hitting NTSC-land on January 31, 2012.

What say you, gamers? We gonna need a bigger sword for that cactuar?
