FF XIII Trophy Support and Battle Restart

December 09, 2009

Continuing the onslaught of news leading up to the release of Final Fantasy XIII in about a week, there has been some new information regarding how Final Fantasy XIII will be handling PS3 trophies.

Like most games, most the bronze trophies will be attainable simply by playing through the main story line, and the silver and gold trophies will be much more difficult. However, one of the gold trophies will apparently unlock a Final Fantasy XIII XMB theme for the PS3. It is not yet known if this feature will carry over to the 360 version of the game.

Another battle feature was revealed as well, and that is the battle restart. This feature will allow the player to reset the battle at will. Though it was not explicitly stated, there will most likely be some sort of cost associated with this feature, for example it might cost a certain amount of gil, or experience to use it, otherwise the player could abuse it and never die, though that is purely my speculation.

First Final Fantasy XIII Review (Famitsu)

December 08, 2009

The first review for Final Fantasy XIII has been leaked. Famitsu has given the game a 39/40 (10 / 10 / 9 / 10).

For comparison's sake, here are some of Famitsu's reviews for previous Final Fantasy Titles.

Final Fantasy I - 35
Final Fantasy II - 35
Final Fantasy III - 36
Final Fantasy Ⅳ - 36
Final Fantasy V - 34
Final Fantasy VI - 37
Final Fantasy VII - 38
Final Fantasy VIII - 37
Final Fantasy IX - 38
Final Fantasy X - 39
Final Fantasy XI - 38
Final Fantasy XII- 40
Final Fantasy XIII - 39

The general trend seems to be increasing, though this could be related to different judges and their expectations changing over the years. For example, IGN has only ever given out 3 perfect 10/10 scores before, two of which come from this current generation(MGS4 and GTA IV), the only other game was LOZ: OoT, which was two generations ago. That is all relative though.

Final Fantasy XIII Chinese Famitsu Scans

December 06, 2009

Some Chinese Famitsu Scans have been uploaded, and their primary focus for this issue is Vanille's new summon, Hecatonchires. Here is a quote from a Q&A with Motomu Toriyama regarding the summon.

Q. What is the design and concept for Hecatonchires?

A: The summon’s concept is a “Shooting Blaster.” Because it can shoot and strike
from long distances in Driving Mode, the enemies’ position influences the
effectiveness of attacks, and it can shoot many times at once.

Q. The fact that it turns into something like Magitek Armor (from Final Fantasy
6) is a surprise.

A. As a matter of fact, we weren’t trying to make it look like Magitek Armor
in the beginning. We wanted a bipedal vehicle included, a design we called
a “Power Suit Tank,” but in the end, the result really does look like Magitek
Armor. (laughs)
