As we all know, development on Final Fantasy XIII started on PS2 before it switched over to PlayStation 3. We never really got a chance to see what it looked like in its PS2 days – until today. Thanks to scans from “Final Fantasy XIII Scenario and Battle Ultimania”, we see just how it all began. Turns out it was cel-shaded at first.
Some okay-quality scans can be seen after the break. Take in mind that the names Yuna and Rikku are only placeholder names. You can clearly see the battle system resemblance from the PS2 days to what it is now.
