Final Fantasy XIII-2 Has Another GameStop Pre-Order Bonus But only if you're a PowerUp Rewards member. 11.21.11 - 11:23 PM

Over in Japan, the game will get a special on the BS11 TV station, where it'll get a behind the scenes look with some of the game's staff. Sazh's VA, Masahi Ebera hosts the show on December 14th, and here is the commercial for the special:
And if you want to sample the game's music, you can go to the official soundtrack site. If you're quick enough to grab the North American Collector's Edition of the game, it'll include the 4-disc soundtrack.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 releases on January 31st in North America.
