The game is now available to purchase in Japan and if you understand Japanese, you can always import it for about a hundred bucks (it's region-free). But for those of you who would rather wait for the March 9 US launch, here's some gameplay straight from one of the most anticipated titles of the generation. This is a battle scene where the characters tackle a couple very strange enemies and as you can see, the combat appears to be both fresh and traditional. Rather than encountering the enemy on the field of battle in FFXII, there's a return to the separate battlefield after touching a foe. But the pacing of the combat itself seems similar...so, what do you think?
