20 minutes of Final Fantasy XIII gameplay footage

Square’s “ultimate single-player RPG” is slowly approaching release, and footage, once rare as hen’s teeth, is now starting to flow like a river. Pick up a copy of Advent Children on Blu-Ray and you’ll be treated to an honest-to-god demo — although as we saw with FFXII, a demo can actually be kind of misleading.

The first part is the video above, and you can watch the second part here. I wish the quality were better, but that’s just how it is, right? Hard to tell what the gameplay is like, but it looks pretty straightforward — it is after all just a demo. There’s more footage here of the same stuff. The game itself will be out in Winter for PS3… and like a year later for the 360.
