Catch yourself up on the story of Final Fantasy XIII-2 By Erren Van Duine on November 8, 2013 at 2:53 AM

Square Enix’s latest digest video out of Japan is here to focus on the story events of Final Fantasy XIII-2.

With less than two weeks before Lightning Returns is out domestically, the video gives an overview of what happened to the cast of Final Fantasy XIII as Serah’s sister and newcomer Noel set off in search of both Lightning and a better future.

Unfortunately, the dialogue and plot descriptions are all in Japanese – still, the scenes will be familiar to anyone who played the game to its completion. If you have yet to play FFXIII-2 I’d advise avoiding this video altogether as the latter half spoils the end of the game as a deliberate lead up to the next and final title in the series.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII hits Japan on November 21st and will launch in the West in February.

    I’m still at the beginning of FFXIII-2 somewhere after we took a ride on the back of a creature in the jungle with Snow.

  • Wassim Mokhtar

    HA! I beat you to it Square! I just finished XIII-2 for the second time!

  • Somber

    Soundtrack selection is really impressive! They match exactly with every scenes.

  • Nokuto

    I like Caius’s Japanese voice better.

  • Anime10121

    Liam O’Brian was a MUCH better Caius to me, heck, the western versions in general sound better to me except for Yuel, who’s voice was perfect in both languages.

    After this maybe we’ll get a new LR trailer.

  • Nokuto

    Yeah, Caius’s English voice is not bad, but there’s something about his Japanese voice that I like. I don’t know…

  • Anime10121

    Been waiting for another “real” one myself 😀

    Cant wait for the Japanese launch trailer! As I’m sure that’ll be quite epic considering Vanille and Caius have yet to “officially” appear in a trailer 😛

  • Sapientia

    Caius (and Yeul) was in the TGS trailer…I mean, not for very long but still there.

  • Karysonson

    Considering its coming out in 2 weeks……..yea I dunno

    It seems there won’t be a theme song for LR, but the game will feature more musics than any other title.

  • Anime10121

    That’s right, I’m so used to those epic 7 minute trailers we’d usually have by now that I forgot all about the TGS trailer. They even released it in English. I have shamed my Final Fantasy fan hood 🙁

    For shame Anime for shame 😛

  • Mateus.E

    Well,Liam usually surpasses any competition.The guy is a beast.Well,Sir Nokuto,at least you didn’t trash talk Caius’s eng VA.Hmm,I haven’t heard his jp VA…hmmm.

  • Anime10121

    I know right, I’m 100% heterosexual, but even I swoon when I hear that voice! Liam just nails Voice acting 😀

  • Sapientia

    Keeps more of the game a surprise, though. I mean good god, I remember one of FFXIII-2’s trailers showing (spoilers)…in The Void Beyond after you leave Academia 4XXAF, Noel is *killed* by Caius. They showed that in a trailer, and while I personally was fine with it, I think it irked a lot of people.
