New Final Fantasy XIII 2 Screenshots

August 12th, 2011 Comments off

That looks like one helluva weapon...does it have a red dot sight?

Final Fantasy XIII 2 is slated for a January 2012 release, and here are the newest screenshots.  I know what you’re thinking…are there chocobos?  What about Moogles?

Moogle2

Where would I buy a toy moogle for myself?

Moogle1

This moogle has magic in his clock wand.




So the question about Moogles is answered.  They appear to have a few extra talents.  One of which is on the main screen (outside of fights), which allows your Moogle to search for hidden treasures.

During battle, your Moogle magician can alter the passage of time.  The screenshot below is a use of the Mog Clock, to gain a tactical advantage before battle ensues.

Moogle magic can slow time, I hope its like the effect in the Vanquish series.

You’ll hear more as we ramp up towards the release date!  It looks like another good Square Enix game, which picks up after the events in Final Fantasy XIII and utilizes many of the same battle systems and controls.  Check out http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_XIII-2 for full-blown coverage.
