L99: LIMIT BREAKER
Wurde soeben auf dem Final Fantasy Lightning Saga Event von Square Enix angekündigt. Sobald neue Infos bekannt werden editier ich es rein
Final Fantasy XIII heroine Lightning will be back in a new game, Square-Enix announced today. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
Series director Motomu Toriyama spoke over an image of a rose, saying roses have many meanings. He then said that this game is the conclusion of Lightning's saga. (No, we're not sure what that means either!)
Toriyama said Lightning will make her comeback, returning as a stronger character than she was in the first two games, FF XIII and FF XIII-2. Lightning is going to face her final battle, so he asked the character designer to convey the power in her eyes.
The game will offer players a lot of ways to customize their version of Lightning.
12:09: After Sakamoto, Kitase takes the stage and closes things off.
12:08: About Kamikokuryo's oil painting...
It's his first oil painting in 10 years.
He set up a studio in his office and spent one month making it.
12:06: Kitase takes the stage and introduces a message from Maaya Sakamoto, Lightning's voice actress.
12:04: Kamikokuryo debuts his latest oil painting, which he was working on until yesterday. It's probably not totally dry, he says.
He takes off the cover and the crowd cheers.
The artwork is meant to represent an image for Lightning Returns.
12:01: Next, a look at some of the designs for the world residents, and some monsters.
12:01: Next, he shows a monorail. This monorail connects the islands of the world.
12:00: Next, he shows some of the world artwork, detailing some of the architecture.
He also shows some parts, like a sofa, a phone, a telephone booth -- some of these have a retro feel, he notes.
11:57: Kamikokuryo takes the stage.
The game is set in an area called Navus Partus.
He focuses in on the biggest city in the region, Lexerion.
11:56: Art director Kamikokuryo takes the stage.
11:56: They're developing the game with button response in mind, although they won't necessarily go so far as to call it an action game.
11:55: Lighting's weapons -- you can equip Lightning with big weapons.
11:54: They're talking about Lightning's customization.
Players will be able to select from a variety of Lighthing costumes.
There will be a lot of costumes -- not at the level of 10 or 20, but a lot more. They're currently looking into this area, so they can't share the final number.
The costumes can themselves be customized through parameters. Details will be shared later.
11:52: Let's see what I missed.
11:52: I'm back in WOOT!!!
11:46: The new game is officially titled Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII.
The game will have some sort of connectivity with the real world, apparently through Facebook. Details will be announced later.
11:46: I can't get back in to Nico Nico, so I'll just translate the Tweets I see.
11:41: Next concept keyword: "World Driven."
This is why they had globes on the stage.
Toriyama takes one globe and says...
Eek... I got booted out of Nico Nico.
Let me try to get connected again.
11:40: Toriyama shows scenes from XIII-2's Lightning DLC.
The Lightning they show will be even stronger than in the first two games.
She will have her final battle in the new title.
Players will be able to experience actions that are symbolic of Lighthing -- speed, etc. The game will also have customization.
"Lightning's final battle begins now," says Toriyama.
11:38: Next, he moves on to XIII-2. Here, Lightning has crossed human level and is more like a god.
11:37: The Lighthing they want to revive today is the Lightning as shown in the original game.
11:36: Toriyama introduces two keywords.
First, Lightning Returns.
Yes, Lightning is the Lightning we all know (this gets some laughs from the audience).
He will tells us the Lightning he wants to revive by first introducing the Lightning we've seen in the previous FFXIII games.
11:35: The new FF game is an all new game connected to XIII.
The concept is represented by a flower, which he's showing on the screen. The flower has many meanings. Like the flower, the new title has many concepts.
11:33: After some photography rules, along with a demonstration of how he will be posting updates to Twitter, Kitase introduces director Motomu Toriyama.
11:32: Kitase jokes that there has been much speculation about the possibilities -- smart phone games, social, etc.
He confirms that the project that will be announced is a new game for a console.
Klingt bisher doch recht vielversprechend, wobei ich bei der Facebook Sached mal abwarten will. Jedenfalls freu ich mich tierisch drauf und hoffe auf weitere Details. Ist für mich wie Weihnachten :-D
Und wie vermutet eher Action als RPG aber mal auf ein Video warten.
