Final Fantasy Versus XIII two years later

Noctis and Stella compared to 2009.

The new Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer is finally out in high-definition. So how does it compare to the media we saw two years ago?

We decided to put together two small comparisons — one of Noctis, and another of Stella — to find out. What do you think? Do they look better now? Do they look worse? Or are you unsure? Drop a comment and share your thoughts.

Keep in mind: the images from 2011 are ripped from a video. The images from 2009 are official screenshots released by Square Enix. Their quality may differ. Also note: the visuals in the trailer are reportedly before the graphics were given a significant boost.
