Final Fantasy XIII Screenshots

2 min read


So here they are guys. The latest collection of Final Fantasy XIII screenshots. Apparently a Japanese demo was released earlier this year and as a result Square Enix has released some updates and changes that will be included in the final game release.

Here’s a list of some of the changes you could read through, otherwise scroll down and check out some visual awesomeness.

* Battle difficulty will be greatly increased. In fact, Toriyama expects XIII to be “the most difficult FF ever”.

* In the demo, party members are CPU controlled. In the final, you’ll be able to issue them directives.

* Continuing your “Chain” in the demo isn’t very important in the demo, but will vital in the final.

* The classic FF victory fanfare isn’t present in the demo, but will be in the final.

* Victory poses may be incorporated into the final; the matter is currently under consideration.

* If the first hit of a chain kills an enemy in the demo, your character continues attacking air for the duration of the combo. This will be remedied in the final.

* Snow is barehanded in the demo, but will have weapons available to him in the final.

* Encounters occur solely from the front in the demo, but various encounter styles will be present in the final.

* The final will have a level system.

* The demo only allows you to control one character, but the final will have a new system for managing other party members in battle.

* The final will have command shortcuts.

* Selecting your target in the demo can be a bit of a chore; the final will have a more streamlined targeting mechanism.

* The final will have an “item” command in battle.

* NPC dialogue will be subtitled in the final. In the demo, there is only voice.

* Sazh’s rather bizarre battle animation will be altered to be less strange, and more “jolly”.

* The Time Gauge maxes out at 3 in the demo, but you’ll be able to add more segments in the final through a new character growth system.

* Summons will be present in the final. The mysterious “TP Bonus” that appears after battles in the demo relates to them.

* Finally, the occasional frame rate drops in the demo will be fixed, according to Toriyama.
