One of the best features of Final Fantasy XIII was the new streamlined approach to the battle system of the game. While some complained that the new system was a bit too simplified, Square Enix has taken these complaints into account in the enhanced system for the sequel.
Three years after Lightning and the others saved Cocoon, some survivors decided to start over by rebuilding on Gran Pulse. Lightning, however, is nowhere to be found and thought dead by many, but Serah believes otherwise. When her town is suddenly overrun by monsters, a mysterious man named Noel appears to save her. Together, the two set off on a journey that transcends time and space, hoping to find Lightning.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is due out in January 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
