FFXIII: Vocals, Visuals & Trial Runs

With FFVII:Advent Children Complete just over the horizon, the demo for Final Fantasy XIII can finally be yours. But what should you expect?

From a technical aspect, the demo is from a 2008 build of the game, and according to director Motomu Toriyama represents only 50% of the title's current state. When at full power, the team claims FFXIII will draw CG quality scenes in real-time.

Throughout the demo, players will be able to control both Lightning and Snow, with Sazh sometimes showing you the way to victory. Speaking of which, while the traditional victory fanfare may be present in the demo, a new version has been cooked up for the final release.

Last but not least, you're vocal cast has been revealed for the main cast. Expect to hear alot from Sazh, as he has been given the most dialogue in the game:

Lightning: Maaya Sakamoto Snow: Daiskue Ono Vanille: Yukari Fukui Sazh: Masashi Ehara

Finally, good news for those of us with HD sets: the demo supports full, glorious 1080p output~
