Someone was kind enough to YouTube the FFXII Intro movie. I originally found the link over at good ole VGCats. Watch it here.
Absolutely. Freaking. Breathtaking. I have made a point of not looking too much into the story of FFXII, in order to prevent ruining the game for myself, so I've no idea what exactly is going on -- save what can be inferred from events as they play out. I know enough to say, for those of you who are not aware, it takes place in the wonderful world of Disney. I mean Final Fantasy Tactics.
Ah, well I don't think the idea of judges was too bad. Although, I will say that Ivalice isn't the best conduit for a sequel. They've some 'splainin to do! I'm not saying FFTA was bad, but Final Fantasy Tactics was much more developed. Oh well, I'm sure it'll coalesce nicely after Square has their way with it.
The only thing I've read is that the world is brought from tactics and the main character is even more effeminine than previously. That seems to be the growing trend with Final Fantasy games.
Anywho, it looks fun!
