New XIII-2 “Battle of Valhalla” Trailer Released

And it is it beauty or what?

The newest trailer, released today for the sequel to one of Square Enix’s most controversial titles (you either love it or you hate it, and a lot of people hated it) is much more of a cinematic movie than many of the others have been. There are no screenshots, just one long, fantastic cut-scene.

This one focuses solely on Lightning and her battle to defend the goddesses’ shrine from Caius.  We do see the Shiva sisters briefly during the battle, but Snow is nowhere to be found. Lots of Square-style physics involved in the fight, and plenty of impressive moves and Lightning being awesome.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes out in the US on January 31, 2012. Watch the trailer after the cut.
