Importing saves for extra content seems to be the norm these days when it comes to sequels. For the most part, importing your save will allow you to get extra equipment, bonus character skins, or for story based games like Mass Effect, allow you to continue your character’s story. Square Enix is forgoing all of these options for Fina Fantasy XIII-2 and going with something completely different and… unique.

If you still have your Final Fantasy XIII save lying around, Final Fantasy XIII-2 will let you listen to the summary movie of the original in the voice of any character. Thanks Square Enix, you guys are really pushing the envelope there as I really wanted to hear Vanille narrate the story again. In other news, the game’s equipment system has also been revealed. Each character will be able to carry four items and will have a weight limit that cannot be exceeded. Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be released on January 31st for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
