Final Fantasy XIII-2 To Include Gambling, Chocobo Racing

Square Enix Xbox 360 Sony RPG News Playstation 3 Microsoft

You read that right. Over at the Tokyo game Show, producer Yoshinori Kitase (pictured above) was involved in Sony’s “Play Live” broadcast. He, of course, talked about Final Fantasy XIII-2. So, what has the producer reveal to the fans of the upcoming game (they are there, people)?

First off, he has revealed that the game will have an amusement centre. It will be filled with various mini games for the player to take a break from the long journey. One of them will be Chocobo racing. That is pretty cool. Kitase also revealed that the game will include a casino. Yes, there will be a Final Fantasy game where you can gamble. I wonder what is the Final Fantasy equivalent for blackjack?

The second piece of news Kitase revealed is an indication of what to expect in terms of downloadable content. Everyone who buys the game can expect weapons, costumes and more monsters. Kitase reassured, however, that the content on the disk will be sufficient without downloadable content, thus it will feel like a full game with DLC being added on to further the experience, unlike several other companies.

Kitase also did a plug for Final Fantasy X HD, being developed for Playstation 3 and Vita, by writing the following message on an oversize Vita: “Let’s Meet In X.”

Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be released in Japan on December 15th, North America and Asia on January 31 and Europe and PAL territories on February 3.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
