Director Motomu Toriyama says one thing they focused on was facial animations, they're "completely synchronised" with English dialogue.
Toriyama-san said that "features which were popular amongst gamers at our survey last summer have been enhanced even further" for Final Fantasy XIII's western launch.
"One of those features is characters' facial animations, which work as the core of any human drama. Their movements are completely synchronised with the English lines and, due to this, each scene in the game is truly spectacular," continued the game director.
"Another feature to be mentioned is FFXIII's new strategic battle system, Paradigm Shift. Just like the Japanese version, this system adds elements of real-time actions to the battle, which has been made almost over-the-top, so that the more you use the shift, the more exhilarating the combat becomes." He asks that we be patient for now.
"Don't get distracted," he said. "You will see the truth when you hold it in your hands. Please be patient a little longer for the 'day of a battle against the fate'!" Final Fantasy XIII sold mega loads of copies when it debuted in Japan in December exclusively for PS3.
The western release is marked down for March 9th on Xbox 360 and PS3. Are you itching for the latest Final Fantasy from Square? Check out the trailer below.
