Two years ago, many gamers were deceived by the long-awaited Final Fantasy XIII. While not being singularly bad, it did not meet gamers’ high expectations for having a below-average story, and for being way too linear. I agree with those points: I initially stopped playing the game at around 2/3rd through. I finally managed to complete the game a few months later when a friend told me the end was worth seeing.
Now, back in January 2011, a sequel was announced: Final Fantasy XIII-2. Is this game any better than the original FFXIII ? Without hesitation, YES, this game is WAY better than the first one!
It hasn’t been a week and already we are seeing the first DLC content for Square-Enix’s bread and butter, Final Fantasy XIII-2. According to the press release,
In this first Coliseum battle, “Lightning and her former superior officer stand in the way of Serah and Noel. When defeated, Lightning and Master Sergeant Amodar can be added to the player’s party.”
Square-Enix also promises that “Additional episodes which enhance the experience and complement the narrative of FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 with storyline branches for key characters in the story will be revealed at a later date.”
Get it now on the PlayStation Network, I mean, the Sony Entertainment Network!
Hit the jump for more screens from the DLC.

The sequel is set to release Jan 31st, which is the end of this month. If you want to get some hands on with the new features on FFXIII-2, well here’s your chance.

None the less I hope your hyped for this game as much as I am.
Square Enix recently released a video preview of the Master & Monsters system in FFXIII-2 . This new feature brings a unique feel to the fast paced Paradigm shift system, giving you the freedom to fully customize your captured monsters and their attributes, summon them to assist you in battle or unleash powerful spells that can also lead into button-pressing action sequences that are unique to each monster.
