Final Fantasy XIII-2 First Screenshots and Story Details

We now have our first look at Final Fantasy XIII-2’s in game graphics, courtesy of Square-Enix and their E3 line-up reveal.

As you can see, the game is running on the PlayStation 3, which, like Final Fantasy XIII, is presumably the lead platform for the title. Images show off Serah as a playable character, along with a new male character named Noel.

Square-Enix also provided a quick look at the game’s story:

Set a few years after Lightning and the others saved Cocoon, some survivors have decided to start over by rebuilding on Gran Pulse. Lightning, however, is nowhere to be found and thought dead by many, but Serah believes otherwise. When her town is suddenly overrun by monsters, a mysterious man named Noel appears to save her. Together, the two set off to find Lightning…

FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 is the follow-up to the 2010 hit title, FINAL FANTASY XIII, and the latest installment in the world-renowned FINAL FANTASY series, which has shipped over 97 million units worldwide. FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 features an all-star production staff including producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Motomu Toriyama, character designer Tetsuya Nomura and art director Isamu Kamikokuryo.
