Released in Japan this past April, the game features the same job-based battle system as its predecessor as well as fan favorite characters. The story follows the events of the first game and features a new protagonist. Agnés, from the first game, has been kidnapped and the player must come to her rescue. The western release has been announced for some time in 2016.
Haven’t played the first game but I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. I enjoy old school Square Enix style RPGs so this will most likely be up my alley. A game like this is just what Square Enix needs right now as well, to continue the acclaim the original game received since a lot of their more recent releases haven’t had the renown success a lot of their titles have had in the past. I’m looking at you, Final Fantasy XIII.
