Was watching that clip as painful for you as it was for me? Perhaps I'm far too cynical, as having witnessed the decline of the Final Fantasy franchise over the past few years has clearly left me jaded. Either way, share your thoughts in the comments below.
This third and final spinoff set in the Final Fantasy XIII universe is set to launch sometime next year. To stay updated on the game's progress—if the trailer hasn't already managed to completely turn you off—keep it locked to GameRevolution.
