Back in 2009, Square Enix showed a Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer. In it, FF Versus XIII hero Noctis Lucis Caelum sported a silly name and some magnificent hair. His name is still silly and his hair is still amazing, but dude's changed.
Over the weekend, what are supposedly new screens from Final Fantasy Versus XIII appeared online. The screens show how the game is coming along—more importantly, how Square Enix's new development tech is factoring in.
Some FF fans prefer the old Noctis. Some like the new one, especially how Square Enix has refined his character design.
As Japanese commenters are pointing out online, it looks like Noctis has aged. Well, technically he has. That original trailer was shown in 2009. It's 2011.
And the release date for Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still TBA.
