Kitase guarantees you'll be satisfied

Famitsu this week has new details on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
Here’s the bullet summary:

Lightning’s new costume is designed by Tetsuya Nomura.

You’ll be able to change Lightning’s costume and costume color during the game.

Time is always flowing, except for when your menu is open on the field.

Every NPC’s whereabouts and actions will constantly change.

Certain information can only be obtained at specific times.

Lightning is the only playable character.

Lightning uses “Styles” in battle. Each Style consists of a certain weapon, shield, accessories, and abilities.

You can customize Lightning’s appearance and ability considerably.

By defeating monsters, Lightning can earn points to increase her available time, and items to strengthen her equipment.

The battle system name has not yet been determined. Right now, they’re calling it the “Amazing ATB” battle system. Rest assured, it’s tentative.

Though you’re only controlling one character, it feels as if you’re fighting with multiple, according to the mag.

Monsters appear even in the city.

Black haze will appear in specific areas at certain times. The new area will become monster territory.

Half of the game’s monsters are new.

The game’s conclusion can be experienced straight from the package. (No download content will need to be purchased afterward, unlike Final Fantasy XIII-2.)

Kitase guarantees you’ll be satisfied by the outcome of previous games’ characters’ stories.

I like everything I'm reading except the fact Nomura was mentioned.
Granted, Lightning's outfit is actually one of his better designs, but the less he's involved with this game the better.

Also, "Amazing ATB" should be the final name of the battle system. I like it.

Kitase doesn't know what will satisfy me.

Let me guess: A FFVII HD remake?
Kitase was probably assuming that most true fans' standards aren't that low.

You have much to learn, young one.

Uh... No? I like XIII. And I don't see a point in making remakes.
Stop assuming things.

I was refering to the conclusion to the characters' stories.

Unless the game comes with a Lightning Blow-up doll on pre-order, I won't be satisfied with the sort of crap Kitase shovels out.
