Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailer shows off Historia Crux system

Wednesday, 18th January 2012 23:04 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A new trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2 has arrived to assist those still wrapping their heads around the time-travel component.

Called the Historia Crux, the time travel system is central to Final Fantasy XIII-2′s plot, which skips off in all directions along alternate, history-changing timelines. Players have the ability to return to previously-explored areas, too.

The anticipated RPG sequel is expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at the end of January in the US, and in early February in Europe.

Thanks, Siliconera.

    Gotta admit, I liked the demo. The game really does fix almost every problem the original one had.

    I mean, I quite liked the actual combat system of FFXIII. The problem with the game was *everything else*.

    I actually found the one true sticking point with 13 was the lack of direct control over the other people standing in a line next to you. Sure you could set up all sorts of stuff and I know that it was done to create a better flowing battle but I still missed being able to choose when to use what exactly.

    @2 Although its not exactly the same, you can now change who you’re controlling in the middle of battle in FFXIII-2.

    Having monsters in your team that you can switch in and out during battle, each with their own unique “limit breaks” that you manually activate, also breaks up the monotony a bit.

    @1 same here,it was kind of fun
    they fixed a lot of things but they ruined some others,naturally.Word has it the story is even worse than the previous.Some good ideas in there which aren’t executed well and fall completely flat.
