March 9 is slowly creeping up on us, which means we’ll all be sitting on our couches and playing Final Fantasy XIII until the wee hours of the morning. To keep us busy, Square just released a new trailer set to the game’s main theme, “My Hands,” performed by Leona Lewis. (At least I think that’s the main theme.) This trailer features the English voice cast, so put on your headphones and take it all in!
A few thoughts:
• Leona Lewis has a nice voice
• The animation is damn good
• The voice acting is no worse than your typical BioWare game’s (I say this now having played Mass Effect for around five hours now)
• The story feels very Japanese (not that that’s an insult, but you absolutely can tell this game was developed in Japan)
• I want an asymmetric haircut like all the male characters have—maybe they’re all AFI fans?
But yeah, it looks good. It’s been a while since I’ve played a JRPG from start to finish.
