A new trailer highlighting the core gameplay elements of Final Fantasy XIII-2, courtesy of GameTrailers. A lot of this is old information, conveniently gathered in one place. It seems towns will be featured this time around, and the minigames that come along with those. Sidequests also appear to be more varied, a nice change of pace from the series of Gran Pulse Cie'th Stone missions in FFXIII. What strikes me as the most peculiar is the ability to recruit monsters to aid you in battle. I assume this is to make up for the change in the way the Eidolons behave in FFXIII-2, but I'm really interested to see how it will play out.
