    Looking good. Love that minor throw back to FFX with the chocobo eater (guess it might be intentional with the HD collection nigh?). I’m watching this on my phone, so I can’t properly pay attention to the customization going on, but it seems there’s a lot to fool around with. Really stoked for the game ^^

      Lightning is just a pissed off man. Fang is better actually…

    This might be the best content they have shown from the game. Yuji did a great job showing how the battle system works.
