Final Fantasy 13-2 To Feature FF13 Save Unlocks, New Game+ Mode

Final Fantasy XIII-2

Final Fantasy 13-2 is headed our way at the end of January, a little more than a month after the game's December 15 release in Japan. The past few months have been filled with info about the game's features, and how it differs from the disappointing FF13. There's still more coming too, even though the game will be in gamers' hands in little more than a week from now.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama sat down for a chat recently with Dengeki PlayStation (via Andriasang) in which they revealed a number of new facts about the game. Those who put time in on FF13 ought to be pleased to hear that save data from the previous game -- you don't have to have beaten the game, just played it -- will unlock "special monster decorations" and improve your success rates in the game's gambling area.

There's also some sort of New Game+ mode that opens up after you've completed the game once. It's not clear how the feature works, though a second playthrough will give players the opportunity to pick up various items that couldn't be gotten the first time through.

FF13-2 will also feature an auto save system in addition to its save anywhere option. Coolest of all for time-sensitive gamers is the fact that each of the game's episodes top off at no more than three hours, which ought to help split the play time up into easily digestible chunks. 

As a longtime fan of the series, I'm still feeling the pain of having to push through FF13 for a review last year. I'm willing to give 13-2 a chance though, since it seems to be returning to some of the mechanics and features that have traditionally been associated with the FF series (and RPGs in general).
