“When we started working on Final Fantasy XIII-2, we kept in mind that we didn’t want a long, drawn-out movie sequence. We wanted it to be more hands-on so people could get into the game at a faster pace. That’s why the opening battle sequence of FF XIII-2 showcases the new direction of a more integrated battle system. The tutorial also kicks in earlier, which is now playable. We just wanted people to get into the game faster than with Final Fantasy XIII.”

— Final Fantasy XIII-2 director Motomu Toriyama explained to GameInformer why the game’s opening is so action-packed.
