Square premieres Promise and Despair videos.

Square Enix officially announced the release dates for Final Fantasy XIII-2 in North America and Europe today, following their initial Tokyo Game Show confirmations.

The RPG sequel will launch on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 31, 2012 in North America and on February 3, 2012 in Europe.

Square Enix also re-confirmed downloadable content, “available soon after the release of Final Fantasy XIII-2.” More details will be shared “at a later time.”

“New World” by Charice will be the game’s official theme song.

The game’s English Tokyo Game Show trailers (that’s right, two!) can be seen below. But beware! Some may agree Square are showing a bit too much. For the single Japanese trailer, see here.

    This game looks like it has a ton of cool things But A TON of bad things =\

  • Kougeru

    Wow…that’s some revealing trailers there lol. Charice has a good voice on the other hand. No wonder it’s not ready yet though, they havn’t synched a lot of the lips yet lol. Gonna be fun having a Behemoth on my team for once.

    I really like the song!! Charice should of did the song for the first game. I love Kaias even though he’s on the wrong team. It would be nice if he becomes playable.

    That first trailer does seem a little spoilerish actually. Either way, they are both great and the new song is really good. Also, February release date sounds perfect to me! All good news!

    My guess is the some of those scenes can be changed, depending on player choices and actions. The time travel aspect of the game is obviously very much tied into the story, apparently your choices might even control if an important character lives or dies.

    What Hope says is interesting to…

    Is that a hint that you might be able to go back in time to events during or prior to FF13? Perhaps an event in the past plays a big role in the future?

      @Zero:

      Thank, I totally forgot that this game is based on player decisions, if you haven’t stated that, I’m probably not gonna buy this one (due to the scenes in the first trailer).

  • FaithlessMr

    The first trailer is definitely spoilerish. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone trying to avoid spoilers as most as possible.

    That being said, I couldn’t decide which trailer was best. The first does give away more of the characters and their purposes, the other kinda shows the older characters and how they’ve changed.

    I feel Something Not Good About FF-XIII-2 ><",i Don't know why ?!
    But Great trailers i love it

  • Aldridge517

    NOEEEEEEEEEEEL!!!!! >:O That was a sweet ass trailer ;D

  • Azure’Sora

    Noooooooooooo, Why did hope’s voice changed so much >.<

  • FinalFantasy_fangirl

    After watching the trailers a few times Hope looks slightly weird. For me the the biggest question for me is will we the Oerbas again.

      @FinalFantasy_fangirl: *horrified* God please, NO FUCKING VANILLE THIS TIME!

      • FinalFantasy_fangirl

        @l1lyone:
        Lol…. Vanille was ok. Hope was annoying to me and I cringed everytime Snow said Hero.

        • http://www.last.fm/user/frogjab l1lyone

          @FinalFantasy_fangirl: These three: Snow, Hope and Vanille were annoying in a varying degree but V. was the most annoying one. And now i’m afraid they hold her as a surprise.
          *praying Lord* don’t let this happen…please :'(

  • Pirate King

    Spoilers for the first trailer… did someone really “ok” that trailer?! I want Vanille back, but only in Japanese so I dont have to listen to her annoying ENG VO… They better have ENG and JPN VO this time!

    • zerolegacy0

      @Pirate King:I agree, if they they had the original Japanese in the game I wouldn’t have to import it. Vanille’s voice actor is 10x better in the Japanese version. Her name is Yukari Fukui, and she played Nono in Diebuster, and Nia in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

    A HA! Is Kaias’ voice actor the one who did The Dad’s voice acting in Nier?
