PS3 and X360 versions have different themes.

Square Enix revealed the theme songs to Final Fantasy XIII-2 during a Japanese TV broadcast. The PlayStation 3 version will feature Fukui Mai’s “Yakusoku no Basho,” and the Xbox 360 version will feature “New World” by Charice.

The PlayStation 3 song is in Japanese, while the Xbox 360 song is the same song, but in English.

Square Enix didn’t say why each version has a different theme song.

Watch the clip below.

    I love Charice and OMG. The environments look soo lovely! Especially the city one

  • Kurai Warrior

    What about the English version?

    What a surprise another gay j-pop song from S-E. What happened to the tear jerking ballads of old?

    • Kougeru

      @TheronGuard00: Songs are different for each person. This may be “gay” to you but for people who speak the language it can either be lame and to some it may even be tear jerking if the lyrics touch them. The 10 seconds of the song they had in that video are far too little for me to make any real judgement.

    I’m iffy on it, but has anyone noticed a lack of enthusiasm over this sequel? A friend of mine, whom happens to be a FF nut said she doesn’t care that it’s coming out at all.

    • Kougeru

      @hush404: Opposite for me. Every FF fan I know is pretty excited for it due to the changes being made. Ive been playing a lot of old RPGs lately including old FF games I honestly don’t see the problem with FF13’s linearity. All RPGs were pretty linear and the ones that wernt like BoF4 had a lot of annoying areas that you were not rewarded for going to, just a waste of time for the most part.

        @Kougeru: I agree. I didn’t mind 13 that much, I thought, at least it was pretty :P I dunno, it’s just my excitement factor (and that of a number of people I know) seems nill. *Shrugs. I’m kinda waiting for news on VS 13. Heck, Type0 has me excited too :P

    Interesting about the different theme songs but no biggie… Im ready to see the tgs trailer… Im still hoping SE will announce Kingdom Hearts HD and I would like to know more about Crisis Core and Dissidia on PS3

    Just in case anyone is confused by the video, “Yakusoku no Basho” (literally means means “The Promised Place”) and “New World” are the same song. One is in English and the other is in Japanese. The PS3 will have the Japanese version and Xbox 360 will have the English version.

    • Sal Romano

      @zerolegacy0: Just added that to the post to avoid any further confusion. ;-)

      • zerolegacy0

        @Sal Romano: Glad I could help. You can call it retribution for my charades earlier today. (^_- )

  • Revorse

    From the few seconds it sounds alright. I wonder if they’ll do the same in the US, or just slap the English version on us.

    • zerolegacy0

      @Revorse: I’m not 100% sure, but I think the Xbox 360 version is the worldwide version and the PS3 version is Japan only.
      I don’t believe there will be another Leona Lewis fiasco this time with two separate songs. It seems Square really was listening to fans this time.

      • Revorse

        @zerolegacy0: Wait….does the JPN PS3 version have something that the US PS3 version wouldn’t have? Besides the song?

        • zerolegacy0

          @Revorse: No, as far as I know right now there is no difference between them other than the song.

  • whiteferrero

    yes! glad i have a ps3! i’d rather hear a jap song. oh w8, is this true for the eng versions of the game as well?

    • zerolegacy0

      @whiteferrero: I think the English version is the worldwide or international version, so the Japanese version is likely Japan only.
      It’s a shame really, but not many people outside Japan like Japanese songs.

      • whiteferrero

        @zerolegacy0: aw oh well. eyes on me was awesome. and melodies of life was great as well, eng and jap alike.
