Featured Release: Final Fantasy XIII-2
There has been a dearth of new video games over the last few weeks. So, with a few couple new games this week, it seems like the 2012 video game year is finally kicking off.
This week’s feature is a sequel to a sequel, something the Japanese publishers seem to love (Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, much?). The Final Fantasy series is one of the most iconic in video game history, dating back to it’s original iteration which released in the U.S. in 1990 for the NES. However, when Square Enix released the much-anticipated Final Fantasy XIII in 2010, it was not too well received by fans despite receiving generally good reviews. The development team has taken some of the complaints from XIII under consideration while developing the sequel.
FF XIII-2 takes place 3 years after the last game ended and furthers the story of Lightning – the main character of XIII – as you play as her sister Serah. Having already released in Japan, the new game is once again receiving generally good reviews from the gaming press. Hopefully gamers won’t have to suffer through another 30-hour hallway with this game as they had for the predecessor.
