Famitsu, in a recent interview with the Director of Squeenix’s sequel to the lackluster Final Fantasy 13, revealed some details that may change cautious intruige into proper anticipation.

In an article translated by andriasang, Toriyama gave us more information to coincide with the promise of DLC and Chocobo Racing. One that will be a plus to those on the 360 is that pre-rendered cutscenes are more or less gone, now made in real time, so the game fits on one disc, rather than three. The  Crystarium growth chart from the first game comes back to, but will not limit your growth, so you can grind to your hearts content without any drawback from the start.

The biggest thing I can see that makes my brain do a happy face is the fact that not only can you change your party leader during battle, if they die, the battle continues. A potential question mark is over the inclusion of Quick Time Events, however it is reported there will be little to no penalty for failing them with only a subtle bonus if they are completed.

The sequel will see the light of day on January 31, 2012 in North America and February 3, 2012 in Europe.

    Still exited. XD Although I think it’s too opinionated to say “lackluster” for FFXIII. While a lot of people didn’t like it, still a lot of people did. >.>

    Lackluster? *Goes to emo corner and cries*

    I hope that this an the FFX HD Collection make square some money so they can finish Versus and start that KH3 game finally… or a FF7 remake but that will probably be pushed to PS4 ;3
