First off Happy News Year everyone and I hope you all had a great one. If you’re a Final Fantasy fan & played Final Fantasy XIII, I’m pretty sure you’ve been keeping up with the upcoming sequel Final Fantasy XIII-2, whether you liked FFXIII or not. 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. Next week Jan 10th a demo will be released on the PSN Store. Hopefully it’s different than demo I played at San Diego’s Comic-Con last year in July. None the less I hope your hyped for this game as much as I am.
Square Enix is hard at work on what is going to be their next gen engine, moving away from their past titles’ art work and into photo realism.

The studio plans to allow other studious to use the engine which will cut production time in half and lower the cost of game development as a whole. Whether this will allow for cheaper games, we’ll have to wait and see. Take a look at a very early sample of what to expect after the jump.
