It’s unclear if Snow will be playable, but he joins Serah and Noel to fight in at least one battle. This trailer from New York Comic-Con shows Snow protecting the two lead characters of Final Fantasy XIII-2 from a giant gooey monster in a cinematic action. Snow stays in the fight and gives monsters a knuckle sandwich. What’s interesting is this battle has four characters – Snow, Serah, Noel, and their Viking monster buddy. This video also has the still unexplained "change leader" command, which was in the Tokyo Game Show video too. Does that mean players will be able to switch between Noel, Serah, and perhaps other characters?
There’s a lot more Final Fantasy XIII-2 to see below. The latest video takes us to Lightning’s world where she leads an army riding Odin and there’s a glimpse of her reunion with Serah. Keep an eye out for puzzles and chocobo racing too.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 31, 2012 in North America.
