Today is the scheduled release date for Final Fantasy XIII-2. I have not confirmed if it has been officially released here in the Philippines, but I'll try to check later after work.
So the game is not a direct continuation of the earlier game. Based on the trailers released, we'll get to use Serah Farron (who was the useless crystal girl in FF XIII) and a new character named Noel although the old characters such as Lightning, Hope(who's entered puberty) and Snow will still be there.

Here's the opening movie released that I got from Youtube.
Oh and Pinoy siopao Charice contributed a song to the game which is surprisingly good. Here it is.
Update: I'm at Datablitz Park Square right now getting my copy. So excited!
