Final Fantasy XIII-2
Final Fantasy XIII-2 Gameplay Vid Looks at Time Travel (Again)

Square Enix has issued yet another gameplay trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2 today, examing "a new dimension of exploration", that the RPG's time travel mechanics afford, with time gates enabling Noel and Serah to leap through time with the Historia Crux acting as the crossroads to different periods.

You'll activate these time gates by unearthing mysterious hidden artefacts that act as keys, allowing you to travel between various locations through time, meaning the landscapes you visit will be constantly shifting and changing as you touch down in either the present future or past.

Investigating each location during each time period will throw up new secrets and items too, so you'll want to be time jumping regularly we reckon. Check out the trailer to see more of Final Fantasy XIII-2's time travelling madness, then give the demo a whirl or wait until January 31st in North America and February 3rd in Europe to get your hands on the full game.

Is there a time gate to time travel back to 1997, and see what a good job and success they made of Final Fantasy 7? maybe Square Enix should jump through that one and then look at what they have made to past while to understand why their failure rate is so high.

All I want them to do is make the main villan look like the gender that it's supposed to be

If I see the villan and I honostly don't know what gender it is, your doing it wrong... I'm looking at you Kuja!

I stopped playing the demo after the first fight, as soon as I was able to walk around. So fucking boring. I used to love these games...

you people need to stop being so negative over this game i played the demo and its way much much much much much much much much better game than XIII itself loads of improvements so what if its getting DLC if we had the PS Store on the PS2 i bet you that DLC for final fantasy would have started way back with FF X or FF X - 2 DLC doesnt make the game worse if anything its gonna make it better :D

Looks like Final Fantasy is going all Chrono Trigger on our arses! I like.

The only thing I'm not happy about is that it's having multiple endings, I hate that because I never have enough time to replay through games just to see multiple endings...
