Final Fantasy XIII Demo Walkthrough

by on August 30, 2009

If you’re like me you’ve probably been trying to get your hands on any RPG fix you can in wait for this epic game and so any new footage/information that comes around is like a mini blessing to you. So here is Motomu Toriyama walking us through a Japanese demo of the game. In it he talks about the combat system a little and also mentions that the English localization is just about complete and ready for input into the game and they will be going through the extra effort to re-sync the characters lip movement to match the English voice acting (how nice of them :D). Personally I hope that they will leave the Japanese voice acting on the PS3 version at least, so I can switch between them at my leisure as I’ve never been too fond of the English voice acting that accompanied my RPG’s (might as well use that extra space for something, right?) but taking into account Square-Enixs’ track record this probably won’t happen.In the interview following this he does mention it could happen in the future but was dropped due to time constraints and wanting to have a smaller gap between the two release dates for the game (Japanese and European/US). There is also mention of the unveiling of a new character in Japan next month by the name of Sarah, whose name has been mentioned a few times in the earlier footage of the game but has never been seen. So have fun watching and let the waiting continue.
