    lol, that look!

  • MrKappa

    God damn Snow is looking bad ass, in the very least his look suits one who governs a place called the city of pleasure.


    ok… i do not know what to say about this. @_@

    Snow looks badass! His new character design is MUCH better than XIII-2’s

  • new_tradition

    Holy shit!11

    I like it ’cause he looks so hawt, but I’m still kind of laughing since we know the kind of guy he is xDDD

    “City of Pleasure”, eh? Go figures-the guy probably mourned for Serah the whole time, has some gorgeous NPCs hanging off him, and he’ll probably still be true to her :3

  • Budgiecat

    now we can punch his stupid Seraaaaah! screamin face with Lightning in real time

  • shogunknight

    Looks like Terry bogard without the cap

  • Bobby Jennings

    Jesus christ…sexy

    Snow here is even better looking that the main dude from VS13.

    • Nice Boat

      He reminds me more to Setzer from FF6.

      • Raiu

        Rather, he reminds me of Riku from KH… Just without the blindfold…

  • kenshee

    Oh damn, he looks cool O.o

    Sort of a natural progression really, looked kinda cool but sort of immature in XIII, Had his sort of weird lion look when he was traveling in XIII-2 and after the events in XIII-2 seems to have been mourning and probably turned quite a lot more serious.

    Considering his age, let’s all furiously hope he didn’t turn into a brooding teenager but instead a calm and collected if maybe a bit melancholy adult.

    Final fantasy can use those types of characters.

    With Lightning in the lead and snow becoming cooler, are they perhaps focusing on the older characters and trying for a more mature style?

    XIII-2 felt… “younger” than XIII, Noel, serah, alyssa and Hope were the most prominent characters and they were all about 20 years old? (and mostly looked and acted younger) The older characters had a lot less screentime.

    If Hope’s aged some more and we maybe get Fang back, I’m really hopeful about the character line-up in this next game :)

    … Why did I get this hyped and hopeful over just the LOOK of an old returning character?

    “He still regrets that he was unable to save Serah.”
    Snow, you should be used to that by now.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    I can’t seem to remember what Snow was doing in XIII-2, according to the main timeline of the game. He wasn’t effected by time since he could travel through it, right?

    • Aldridge517


      The last time you see Snow in XIII-2 he vanishes in thin air. Maybe he travels through time, maybe he disappears from existence, idk. I’m still trying to figure out how time works in XIII-2, I know it’s not in a straight line.

      • KnifeAndFork

        none of this plot makes any sense so don’t bother trying to figure it out. Just punch the writer

  • DarthBrian

    Oh crap. I guess that means I have to suffer through more Troy Baker. Ugh.

    Oh well, still excited for the game. ^_^

  • MrRobbyM

    Damn Snow, you looking sexy.

    *suddenly interested in game*

  • Nice Boat

    I hope he brought the Steel Guard

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    sigh, I want “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” I mean FFXV already.

  • Raiu

    Snow has a complete makeover? Cool and classy as well….

    I still prefer VS13’s main though…

  • LastBoss

    I want a Lightning v Raiden, hidden boss battle!!!

  • MasterSensei

    He regrets not being able to save Serah yet he becomes the govenor-general of the city of pleasure…hmmmmmm

  • Aldridge517

    City of Pleasure?! What kind of pleasure? o.O

  • SpectralRaiden

    So that explains everything–Marluxia is Snow’s Nobody; It’s all so simple now;-P

    • Aldridge517

      He made me think of Marluxia too.

  • Demolish

    will be good if they returns all the characters :)

  • Micheal Scott

    Ha wow Snow looking good in a suit
    City of Pleasure? well ill stop by there ever now and then ;D

  • TimesTicking

    WTF is going on with this FFXIII-3 game?

    • handsomejack47

      Something about how the world will end in 13 days and you have to find a way to stop that. Apparently, to get every single thing in that game done, you’ll have to play through the game a number of times.
      Last I checked, the game was like 80-90% done.

  • Xtradivarius

    definitely a lot better than his previous designs,at least he dropped the ridiculous haircut.
    I hope he is more mature than before,and no more hero bull**** please?

  • handsomejack47

    Oh god the fangirl obsession over him is going to be INSANE.
