The latest issue of Famitsu has explained how players will time travel in Square’s latest epic, Fina lFantasy XIII -2.
According to Dengeki PlayStation, who got hold of the mag early, each area of the game has gates which players can find and turn on. Once activated the characters can then travel to different periods by standing on the gate. Some areas have multiple gates to trigger, although gates only stay open for a limited amount of time, but can be reopened.
It’s not 100 percent clear how the game’s time mechanics will work. However, the time element is a central part of the story. Screens within the magazine show that there may be some collection involved in each area, so perhaps characters will be required to travel through time in order to do this, which should mean a large variety of environments to explore.
We will bring you more details in the future.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 releases in January 2012 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
