Looks like Lebreau from Team NORA is alive and well in Final Fantasy XIII-2. She hints that something may have happened to Snow since she tells Serah to take care of herself.
While the game begins in Pulse, players will travel back to Cocoon, an event newcomer Noel sounds excited about. Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan this December. Square Enix plan to release the game in North America and Europe early next year.
