During a hands on demo of a more advanced version of Final Fantasy XIII-2, Impress Watch noticed something a bit strange about the game’s opening. If you were to have a save file from Final Fantasy XIII you would be able to hear the game’s opening narration from a number of different characters instead of just one.
Whether or not there are more bonuses other than this to be had has yet to be seen. Siliconera reports that the equipment system and level up system has been changed as well. Each character can equip four different items at a time and monsters can wear items that will change how they look in battle. Noel and Serah will still level up using the Crystarium system, but rather than having multiple paths, there will only be one path with various branching grids.
