FFXII's plot can be summed up as "So a multifaceted plot of political intrigue, a fantastical high adventure of a roving band of treasure hunting sky pirates, and a Final Fantasy game liberally swiping as much as it can from the two Star Wars trilogies walk into a bar; the first two want nothing to do with each other but the third one's standing on the table between them shouting "I'm Captain Boshe von Ronsenburg!" and "Boshe lives!" while a chocobo kwehs' and a one winged angel crashes the joint.". Granted the eventual loss of leadership and constant executive meddling didn't help things either, but it wasn't as bad as FFXIII-1 had been which didn't have leadership at all until the 11th hour when they got called out on their bullshit and had put up a demo for the Advent Children Blu-Ray release; but I digress. As for gameplay FFXII tried to do what Xenoblade Chronicles succeeded in and failed.

I feel like that's pretty good going for an FF game when the source of vitriol is a meme (stemming from a short 15 minute mini-game segment), a combat system that emulates Xenoblade, and a generous nod to the Star Wars franchise.

This is the closest thing there is to a screenshot for now.

She's gone from collecting Einherjar to pursuing Lu Bu.

"Don't pursue Lu Bu".

But Lu Bu is easy to handle if you take your time with him.

Both Japanese and English websites have been updated with various details and a longer trailer, the links are in the OP if anyone wants to check them out.

I want to say that the booth on the left end of the picture is the Final Fantasy XIII equivalent of the TARDIS and thus that guy between Lightning and the TARDIS is actually the FFXIII equivalent of The Doctor, but then I remember that this game was written by the same guys who took three games to realize that the best way to foist your shallow one dimensional character onto your fanbase is to not let anybody else in to show her up or become the surprise protagonist (wutup Fang).

Still, it would be a far greater explanation as to how Lightning is getting back to the Dawn of the First Day 72hrs remaining then whatever bullshit they're probably going to end up shitting out of their uncreative rectums (probably something involving Caius since he's still not Marty Stu enough yet).

It's one way to make Lightning look less ridiculous.

That npc has an amazingly derp face. The derp is strong within that one.

I'm excited about this game. I love lighting so a game all about her in a race against time = win for me.
