Final Fantasy XIII-2 playable demo now available

If you're looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII-2 and the wait is killing you, there's some potentially good news: Square-Enix today released a playable demo for the game that is available for download on both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

The demo takes place in Bresha Ruins and lets you control Noel and Serah as they are pitted against a gigantic and powerful adversary called Atlas. An anomaly in time and space has caused Atlas to appear. By participating in the battle against Atlas, players will be able to experience many gameplay features and enhancements to the original Final Fantasy XIII engine, including cinematic action sequences in battles and environments with multiple areas and paths to explore (a change that those who played through Final Fantasy XIII should definitely appreciate).

Also featured in the demo is the brand new Paradigm Pack System. Players will be able to enlist defeated enemies into their party and develop them alongside Serah and Noel. Gotta catch 'em all, right?

“The demo provides an excellent opportunity for players to try out the evolved battle system and fully explore an entire area of the game,” said Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy XIII-2. “We are very pleased to give our fans the chance to see the multitude of game improvements for themselves.”

I don't tend to try game demos myself, and I probably won't try this one, but I have to say... the more I hear about Final Fantasy XIII-2, the more I want to play through it. We'll be sure to review the proper retail version following its release at the end of the month, but in the meantime, maybe you'll give the demo a go and let us know what you think?
