ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Noel looks like someone from FFX-2... Or was it FFX. Actually he looks like Fang.

YEAH PLAYABLE SERAH FUCK YEAH.
 

Yoshichan

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

As expected, looks gorgeous! Need more pictures ASAP! This game is gonna be the best. Can't see anything too radical of change in the battle pic though... hmm, double trouble?

For some reason I expected them to change the battle system
I expected this too actually. Probably because X-2 had a completely different battle system from X, so there's a precedent there. Eh, I guess they save time and effort (and money) this way, and the FFXIII battle system was one of the few good things about the game.

As much as I feel like FF13 is a missed opportunity.

I'm all in for this. Glad to see they didn't change the battle system because I loved that part of the game.

Life is somehow incomplete if you're not hyping at least one Final Fantasy title at any point in time.

Is this the first time Noel has been mentioned? (I haven't heard/seen anything since the teaser).

Playable Serah? Kingdom Hearts lookalike teenage boy? I guess Final Fantasy is now made for 12 year old girls.

This series keeps jumping more and more sharks.

Pity they are keeping that wretched battle system. I was kind of hoping they would have a great change up like X2 was for X, which delivered their best to date.

Kinda sad I know exactly where the narrative is going and personalities of the characters by just one screenshot. "Save it for later, you can fight, can't yout?" the boy says to the hesitant afraid girl...I swear I've heard that equivalent line in 10 other jrpgs.

Odd. That character design screams Kingdom Hearts way more than FFXIII ever did.
Yeah, you could have told me it was from that series and I'd believe you.

I'm going to assume that Noel is the old Fang (Fang used to be a boy until they decided Fang is going to be a girl).

They said they'd improve the battle system.

YEAH PLAYABLE SERAH FUCK YEAH.
Serah was the Osaka Street Whore right? One of Snowe's sidekicks?
EDIT: Lightning's sister/ Snowes girlfriend. I can't remember any of these characters outside the main 6
