More Final Fantasy X-2 Details

Square has released additional information regarding Final Fantasy X-2 for the PlayStation 2. A total of six well-known jobs will be available in the game: White Knight, Black Knight, Fencer, Gunner, Thief and Dancer. As previously reported, jobs are changed automatically when you change a character's costume. In order to change costumes (and jobs) you have to activate a corresponding sphere. By default Yuna is a gunner, Paine a fencer, and Rikku a thief. The latter is capable of stealing time, MP and gil, among other things. As a gunner you can press the R1 button on your controller to initiate a quick trigger and thereby perform a chain attack.

Final Fantasy X-2 will utilize the Active Time Battle system, which was a part of series until FFIX, but certain improvements and changes have been made. During battles your foes will act much more dynamic than in previous installments. Instead of attacking you and then returning to their previous positions, they will change their positions. It is also possible to talk to either foe or friend during battle.

Apart from Lulu, Wakka, Rikku and Kimahri, Tidus has been confirmed to appear in the game. In one CG scene he and Yuna are seen escaping from a military force. Whether this is the game's reality or only an illusion of Yuna's, remains to be seen. Bahamut also is seen unleashing his Megaflare on opponents, which hints at the fact that summons may also make a return in the game.

The recently revealed third playable character Paine will have a voice similar to Lulu's. She is rather cool and plays a role comparable to Auron's in the original game.

Final Fantasy X-2 will be released in Japan on March 13th 2003.
