New Final Fantasy X-2 Details

Only one day after Square officially unveiled its newest PlayStation 2 RPG, Final Fantasy X-2, yesterday, Famitsu Weekly has posted an interview with members of the game's development team in its most recent issue. First of all, Tetsuya Nomura will return as character designer. FFX-2's protagonist, Yuna, will be joined by two other main characters, Rikku and a third unknown female. The changes compared to Final Fantasy X, however, do not stop on the visual side, as the battle system will be entirely revamped. Toshiro Tsuchida, who was responsible for FFX's battle design won't return to the development team. Sphere grid, overdrives and overkills will all fall victim to the changes in the battle system. The action elements on the field map will be executed automatically, meaning they won't require timing a la Kingdom Hearts. Last but not least, there will be no Rikku version.

Final Fantasy X-2 will be released in Japan sometime in March 2003.
