I assume you're talking about XIII and not VS. That would make sense considering the trend FF protagonists have been taking. The protagonist for XIII clearly has breasts, though.

Saw that trailer on YouTube today and I really have to wonder are they once again showing only parts from the movies of the game... It's such a cheap trick mentioned even in Gamer's Manifesto (part #3).

The video IGN has clearly shows a status screen and a map on the upper left corner during some of the scenes; So, at the very least, I want to believe those are using the game engine.

I'm going to have to strongly disagree with you there, I think she looks great.

I feel stupid judging a game based on a 1 minute trailer, but I've got very high hopes for this, looks like it could very well end up being the best FF ever.

It has been mentioned that everything in that trailer is rendered in-game in real time. These are not the CG movies, but simple in-game cutscenes combined with actual game-play (when all the status menus popped up). If you pause during the "game-play" scenes, you'll find that the graphics retain the same level of details as the cutscenes.

With graphics like these, I doubt they'd need CG movies anymore anyway.

I'm pretty sure this is how things will unfold (based on what i've read from sites like IGN)

XIII and VS XIII are related.
I'm pretty sure VS is the direct sequel to XIII (evidenced by the name).
VS will be like kingdomhearts, so action orientated and it is also made by the same group who did KH series.

It's pretty interesting that they have already announced XIII and it's sequel so early on, so I guess you can bet on the story to be solid at the very least.

Well, according to official info, the games will have nothing to do with one another. Different characters, different worlds. "Same mythos", whatever that means.

I mostly get them from 2ch or, here.

Here are some new scans:

FF Agito XIII (Moblie Phone) Scans:

http://img11.imagevenue.com/img.php?...ader162095.jpg

Some notes courtesy of Duckroll from GAF:
- FFXIII might have online features, but it won't be the focus
- FF Versus XIII will not have online features
- The battle system for FFXIII will make use of both "time" (ATB probably) and "3D space" (probably meaning the battles take place within a 3D area that actually affects the gameplay)

Nice big Update from IGN:

Thanks for the new screens.

I love the graphics; and while I initially thought the heroine of FFXIII was incredibly unattractive... those screens have now changed my mind ; ) I'm still very skeptical of all its gimmickry -- look at that weapon she's holding.. It's a bloody SWISS KNIFE.

I'm just really skeptical of all this shininess. I really hope they pull this off fine.

I think they will make it very good to say the least. But did somebody say there are four FF XIII variations in the works? That's excessive, FF XIII and FF XIII VS would be just fine.

And the heroine isn't unnattractive, I like her, she has a bit more of a mature look.

It's true that the graphics are nicely done, looks like AC, but graphics isn't all in a game. Well, I dun have high hopes for Square-Enix, FFX was the first game which disappointed me, then it went on with FFX-2 (really lol), Advent Children was just orientated to look good as well and ... Star Ocean 3 wasn't that good and Grandia 3 was just ridiculous... They just focus tooo much on graphics and forget to put in a good storyline, so better to await nothing good of them since the story is most important in a game imo...

Just to clear things up, I did say that they were related which can mean alot of things. Discovered the relation is actually a pretty dodgy one (basically it is mythology that is related, i.e moogles, chocobo and magic spell names). Kind of sad that the games share the same title, but are only as "connected" as VII and VIII were (so basically not at all). (article link from iron maw). So that's my bad. But then again, it is early stages of development, so anything could happen.

Also, I said I was pretty sure, but I was obviously incorrect about that, my mistake again.

From official sources, three titles were announced (again from IGN), buying the rights to a name is a possible indication of another game, at best. Many companies buy the rights to certain names and never actually use them, happens in almost all industries.

Anyway, about the discussion on the Heroine. Many people are saying she is unattractive (bordering on ugly), but she is supposed to be realistic. She isn't ugly, nor is she strikingly attractive, which is basically what most people are. I agree with Urzu 7, she does look more mature than the more recent FF female characters.

About the Agito scan, it says there: "School Drama?"

Sounds like you can create a character or choose one and your character starts in a training school like Gardens from FFVIII.

The girl with a scythe, the guy with playing cards and the girl with a flute and mog doll got my attention. We dont see such weapons all the time in the FF series. Setzer had playing cards but no other characters used scythes and a flute/doll combination.

A quite surprising new detail was next revealed, the female character who has been seen in almost everything to do with Final Fantasy 13 so far, is in fact not the main character. However, the developers say she is strong and independent, and that she will have a prominent role in Final Fantasy 13.

Wuhu!
I'm actual happy because I prefer a male main character. (It is is a male main characters though... ) More news at the site.
