Final Fantasy XIII-2‘s casino mini-games, teased in the latest trailer, including chocobo races and slot machines, are played in the giant casino city called Xanadu, the latest issue of Dengeki has revealed.
It also has details on a new “Time Labyrinth” system. The feature sees certain floors in dungeons disappear, requiring the player to gather crystals and solve puzzles involving numbers and clock hands to advance. The less difficult dungeons are part of the game scenario, said director Motomu Toriyama, while more difficult dungeons will be available as optional side-quests.
The “Time Labyrinth” system was included in Final Fantasy XIII-2 due to complaints that the first game had few dungeons, said Toriyama.
Toriyama also hinted of Sazh’s whereabouts in XIII-2, saying that he’s taken to aiding Gran Pulse.
