Why disturbing? They develop the chara in this way since the begining. It wasnt the same after Amano say good-bye u.u

Rol games are popular in Japan and Final Fantasy is a strong franchise, they're expecting to sell about 1million copies in the 1st week.
Yesterday was the japanes release date.

UPDATE: the rumors says that the fist million is already sold, this not includes special console with game package.

for me as a final fantasy fan its okay that lightning is like a female cloud. i mean since the series exist there were always characters or names from old episodes included like the chocobos, "biggs&wedge" or "cid". lightning doesnt seem to be a cheap copy to me like kuja ff9 (sephiroth ff7). but okay ff9 was an exceptionally big mix of old episodes on purpose.

since i know that maaya voiced lightning i never thought of cloud again lol just about maaya. so lightning is 1 of my alltime fave charas now of course <.< too bad i will only be able to listen to her in this role here in the web for now :(

This game is indeed selling very well ^^

Here is the video interview of Maaya : http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm9123989

Some of the Japanese guys are being bad in the video comments. They're saying that Maaya got fat, and that because she's 30 now... And that she doesn't know anything about video games (but to me that's not a bad comment ^^).

Its disturbing because no matter how good Lighting looks I can't shake the image of Cloud in drag. :D

Most of the comments are in the order of "kawaii" though and one proposal. She looks healthy to me, Maaya always seemed a touch on the skinny side. Even if she has put on weight its just more of her to love.

edit: and I just though, it could be her hairstyle making her face look rounder.

I'll never be able to play ff13 if I think of that lol.

Maaya doesn't look fat to me >_>; but then again, I'm pretty bad at judging people's weights XD;

I almost hate to do this to you but behold! Cloud in drag as Lightning needing more fibre in his/her diet.

... That does look a bit like Cloud from AC... Just needs to be blonder.

... Why does it feel like I just told a very American joke... >_>;

:o Would be good news though :3 30's a nice age to settle down, best to do it early. (sides, a mini maaya sounds like fun

After reading reviews about the game FFXIII...some gamers said that FFXIII is cg movie with rpg minigame...Well some says the storyline is too linear.

Wah....I hope it's a joke

Sounds like Xenosaga again...

Then again, that's not a bad thing to be honest, I loved the style in Xenosaga(even if everyone else seemed to hate it >_> ;)

I'm about 11 hours in, it is indeed extremely linear, it's practically one straight corridor in which you can only move forward so far.

that said, the presentation is stellar, and the combat system is fun and challenging, got my ass handed to me a couple times by cannon fodder monsters when i wasn't paying attention for a few seconds :P

the linearity may not be your cup of tea, but so far it hasn't really bothered me.
