Official Final Fantasy Versus XIII Trailer Releases

A new video featuring six minutes of game footage reveals new details regarding how the upcoming Final Fantasy game from Square Enix plays.

Last week, we reported on a leaked video showing off a good bit of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the oddly named new game from Square Enix. That footage has since been pulled from YouTube. In its place, the publisher has released a higher resolution, official version of the video.

The first half of the video mostly shows off some of the oh-so-pretty cinematics, but there's plenty of battle footage in the second half, including an amazing fight against a Behemoth. At first glance, the gameplay shares more in common with Kingdom Hearts-style combat than the traditional Final Fantasy games. This makes sense, as Versus XIII is being directed by Tetsuya Nomura, the chief architect of the Kingdom Hearts series.

Take a gander at the video, and let us know what you think in the comments.
