May I ask which distinguished lady is doing her Japanese voice?

(If it's a rookie, SE has some darn big balls.)

Did she just say Paradigm Shift battle system?

Sounds so much like the Ar Tonelico series...
Their dialogue at the end seems interesting. Any speculation going around yet?

Hay there evil meganekko.

I bet she'll have an irritating voice.

@ET: Now, that would entirely spoil the character. I was hoping for someone like Inoue Kikuko or Tanaka Atsuko for her. Heck, even Minagawa Junko would do.

She just strikes me as that type of character that is supposed to be machiavelically annoying.

But yeah, those would be good fits nonetheless.

She may be like Grace from Macross Frontier, and I think most of us know how THAT went, in terms of voice acting.

Based on her appearances, I'd say she seems a somewhat reserved and elegant but the fact that she is one of the villians of the series and also a cruel commander contradicts my judgement.

For that matter, the seiyuu could turn out to be one of the popular ones like Sawashiro Miyuki. Other possibilities may include Noto Mamiko. Considering that she is garnering so much attention before the release of FFXIII, I don't think Square-Enix would choose a rookie seiyuu to voice one of the important villian roles. Speaking of which, Noto-san has never voiced a villian role before, so chances are quite slim. Same thing seems to apply to Sawashiro-san but then.. Who will voice the character?

I was actually hoping that some of the characters from the Versus will make cameos or appear as hidden recruitables but it seems the chances are very slim as that the two stories are not connected in any way. The main characters of Final Fantasy XIII seem to be fighting for survival, whereas the main characters of Versus are doing it for their crystal or kingdom sort of thing.

Nonetheless, I like the new summons. The fact that Shiva can transform into a motorcycle which Snow rides, while Odin becomes a horse for Lightning seems like a good idea. The graphics of the two games also exceeds almost every other RPGs out there. I was somewhat disappointed at the release of FFXII over story-elements which looked too much like Monster Hunter with the RPG battle system but these new games to the series are awesome!!

These games are a good enough reason to get a PS3, not to mention that Persona 5 will most likely appear on the console too.

Er no. For once, I hope Sawashiro Miyuki does NOT get this role. Noto did some awesome lines as Johan in Monster (the ep where he disguises himself as his sister, who is Noto's default character). Still, I doubt that is really enough. As always, will reserve comments until cast list is fixed.

It's been a long time since I've seen such a delicious megane-girl.

I do hope she wouldn't suffer the same fate as all the other rivals in every other FF series: mutating into a hentai tentacle final boss.

Out of the huge list, these are the only games I am looking forward to. Of course, I also like: Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Final Fantasy XIII Agito, and The Third Birthday which are not mentioned this TGS event.

That's huge news. Final Fantasy XIII coming out in December in Japan only on the PS3 will sell obviously. I'm sure Sony wil be happy about that.

I'm actually more interested in Final Fantasy Versus XIII though.

This driving mode function kind of looks cool. I always liked inputting commands with Zell's Limit Break in VIII so I hope that's kind of how it works.

Quite bit info came out of the premiere party today so I will summarize:

-Jp release date confirmed.
-US/EU versions supposed to come out 5-8 months from now.
-EU release date will be announced very soon (and US too I guess).
-New trailer that we can't see.
-Serah revealed to be Lightning's sister.
-Snow and Serah kiss in the trailer.
-She apparently is an l'Cie as well.
-Another female with a tattoo appeared and somewhat wild hair.
-Jihl turns Sazh's son into a crystal to save Cocoon (whatever that means).
-Sazh's summon is Ifrit and it turns into a car.
-Like FFXII's Potion, they're making an Elixir drink for FFXIII.
-Possible PS3 slim bundle with FFXIII (Japan only right now).
-More to come in 2-3 weeks.


A bunch of pics from the party:

Trailer Description:
Quote:
The trailer opens with a voice over. A young girl says something like "The future is scary because you cannot see it." Character Snow Villiers is on some sort of bike craft with teenage girl Serah. Fireworks are exploding around — it's beautiful. Even though, she's considerably smaller than Snow and younger looking, they lean in for a romantic kiss.

Cut to an airship, which is descending. PSICOM soldiers deploy. Silver-haired Yaag Rosch orders the troops forward.

This is followed by a montage of game play scenes, complete with boss battles and footage of characters Hope and Snow running through the field. It gives a taste of what it's like to play FFXIIII. Sazh Katzroy's Summon appears and goes into Gestalt Mode — which is a race car. Very surprising transformation and Sazh hopes into the vehicle.

Quick scene of Lightning talking with Serah. Cut to Jihl Nabatt interrogating Sazh Katzroy.

Another quick cut to orange-haired girl Oerba, who drops to her knees and holds onto Serah's skirt saying, "I'm so sorry."

We get a scene of an aircraft flying through electric bolts.

Another scene. It's day time, and we're up in the clouds. Serah falls out of an aircraft, and Snow calls out after her.

Cut to Snow with his shirt off. His chest appears to be bandaged. There is male nipple action. He is surrounded by the Cocoon army. The troops have their weapons draw, laser sights pointed at Snow's chest. Yaag steps forward as Snow begins to talk them down.

Series of quick scenes: Sazh and Oerba having an argument. Hope pissed off. Snow pissed off. An explosion. Snow is carried by troops past a lady with brown hair and a tattoo.

Serah collapses onto the ground, saying "Protect me."

During the mid-point of the trailer, the game's theme song, "Kimi ga iru kara" (sung by Sayuri Sugawara) kicks in and plays throughout the trailer.
