The one for exchanging the coffees?

(I've JUST got the Blue Narciss [boat] and am spamming Chocobo H/C up until before I get the Gold Chocobo [if I get it before the airship, the game will glitch and skip half the story])

Went to the 'chocobo dream world' when my Yellow one evolved into a Blue one. The final one is white from what I can tell, I guess people just referred to it as gold because they're used to it from FFVII.

Final Fantasy XIII’s launch date is slowly creaking into sight, meaning Square Enix is gradually releasing more and more details about the game. But what will actually happen? We’ve pored over the latest trailers to try and work it out. If you haven't already, you might want to watch the latest FFXIII movie before going any further.

Got all that? Good. Now, based on what we've seen so far and using our extensive Final Fantasy knowledge, here are 9 absolutely completely plausible plot predictions for FFXIII.

1. Serah dies

01Serah_dies--article_image.jpg

Look at her. Sweet, innocent, youthful and cute. Yup. Lightning's sister Serah is prime tear-jerk fodder. She's just a bit too loveable to quietly sit in the background. Sure enough, the latest TGS trailer spends a lot of time showing Serah reaching out for help, or being cradled in fiancé Snow's burly arms, whispering what could be her final words (‘Please, protect Cocoon’). In fact, FFXIII devs recently confirmed that she gets turned into a crystal - although what exactly that means is still unclear (we presume it’s a bad thing).

It's been 12 years since Sephiroth made the stabby with Aeris in FFVII - long enough, perhaps, that Squeenix have decided it’s just about time to traumatise a whole new generation of gamers. Better get those tissues ready.

2. Cocoon crashes into the ground

02Cocoon_crashes--article_image.jpg

Cocoon is a perfect futuristic city that hovers high above the feral world of Pulse. Created by a powerful crystal, her citizens are safely housed in this high-tech haven. But everything is just a little too pristine. Creepily so. Twin this with the fact that Lightning’s mission is to destroy this false paradise and there's surely only one way this can happen; what goes up, must come down.

Remember how monkey-tailed madman Kuja smashed up the city of Alexandria in FFIX? Or how Sin rampaged through FFX’s metropolis of Zanarkand? Total urban destruction isn't exactly new to Square. So whether Cocoon plummets down towards terra firma, or Lightning riots through the streets like Godzilla on heat; you know it’s not going to be in one piece by the end game.

3. Baddie Jihl Nabaat morphs into a superpowered badass, is killed

03Jihl_morphs_fixed--article_image.jpg

There’s only one way it can go for any FF antagonist, and that’s not very well indeed. In the case of FFXIII’s bad gu…er…girl, Lieutenant Colonel Jihl Nabaat already looks to be the power-hungry tyrant that FF veterans will cherish defeating.

It’s pretty much a given that in order to defeat Lightning and her cohorts, stern faced Jihl will activate an ancient relic full of mystical power and transform into some monstrous overlord capable of destroying worlds. FFXII’s Vayne, FFVI’s Kefka, FFV’s EX Death – they all transmogrified, with the latter turning into a giant tree. The only real question here is what she turns into, and, more importantly, what her weak spot is.

4. Other baddie Yaag is remorseful, helps Lightning at the last moment

04Yaag_remorseful--article_image.jpg

Rumour has it that Lieutenant Colonel Yaag used to be Lightning’s superior, before she defected. According to the devs, while Jihl is plain evil, Yaag is simply misguided. His motives are noble – he only wishes to protect the people of Cocoon. Indeed, when his troops are pointing their laser sights at Snow’s man-chest, Yaag asks him if ‘the life of just one of you in exchange for millions of lives is fair?’ So despite starting off on the other side of the pitch, it’s inevitable that our pony-tailed soldier will suddenly realise the error of his ways and join Lightning for the final fight. After all, Gabranth did the old switcheroo in FFXII. And then he…er…died.

5. Hope forgives Snow and is adopted by him

05Hope_forgives--article_image.jpg

Fresh-faced lad Hope Estheim may seem a bit too young to be fighting the good fight. But he didn’t really have a choice. His mother was killed when resistance leader Snow asked her to take up arms against the enemy, PSICOM. This left Hope under the protection of Snow, despite the boy’s deep resentment towards the blond bombshell. And since Hope’s father works for Cocoon’s government body, Sanctum, he can either trail his newfound nemesis or head to the orphanage.

The latest TGS trailer shows Hope and his estranged father watching as a questionably half-naked Snow is about to be shot, and – yes, that does seem to be a look of brotherly concern on the youngster’s face. And we know how much Square Enix love a good reconciliation.

6. Lightning starts to turn into a l'Cie corpse

FFXIII’s story revolves around the Fal’Cie and the ’Cie. The former are divine beings, transformed by crystals that fuse with them. The latter are regular humans chosen by the Fal’Cie to carry out a mission – or Focus, in Final Fantasy speak. If a l’Cie fails to carry out their quest, well, they turn into an undead monster called a l’Cie corpse. As we mentioned earlier, leading lady Lightning’s Focus is to destroy Cocoon. A seemingly impossible task, no? Maybe that’s why this year’s E3 trailer shows our girl clutching her chest, gasping the words ‘I can barely keep myself alive, let alone some kid!’ at a gormless Hope. Oh dear. Better meet that deadline, eh?

7. Vanille is working for the enemy

07Vanille_enemy--article_image.jpg

With the introduction of several new characters, pig-tailed Vanille has stepped out of the limelight. So you can be forgiven for forgetting that in a very early trailer, she’s seen walking towards nasty Jihl, who tells her that ‘for every task, there’s a perfect tool’. In the new TGS trailer, she collapses at Serah’s feet, crying ‘I’m sorry!’ An admittance of guilt?

Furthermore, the same trailer shows a despondent Vanille screaming ‘Shoot me!’ at a furious Sazh, who points a gun at her and yells ‘you think you’ll be forgiven if you die?!’ Now, remember that at some point, Sazh’s adorable dimple-cheeked son will be abducted by PSICOM. Could there be a touch of FFVII’s two-timing Cait Sith in her? Either way, never trust a girl who wears more beads than clothes.

8. Lightning betrays the Fal’Cie

08Lightning_betrays--article_image.jpg

On the subject of betrayal, will Lightning really carry out her monumental mission? She does seem to voice her resentment towards the Fal’Cie to anyone who’ll listen. Her most recent admonishment comes when she addresses her motley crew during the TGS trailer: ‘the Fal’Cie think humans are tools. I’m not going to die for one of them.’ When Sazh asks her what they’ll do, she coldly replies ‘destroy it’. Well. Even if she does go on with her mission, at least one Fal’Cie is going to get their butt kicked. If they have butts.

9. FFXIII is given the movie treatment, ala Advent Children

09_FFXIIIMovie--article_image.jpg

During a recent interview, FFXIII’s producer and all-round legend Yoshinori Kitase was asked whether or not FFXIII would go the way of FFVII and be expanded with a CGI-movie. ‘Anything’s possible,’ he replied, a cheeky glint in his eyes.

XIII already has a web novel (available here - if you can read Japanese, that is) that explores the run-up to Lightning’s adventures. Also, XIII is already part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis collection, which includes FF Versus XIII (currently M.I.A) and Agito XIII (the PSP installation). Although these games aren’t directly related, they’re set in the same universe. So it’d make sense if the Crystallis brand branches out into further forms of media. Come on, Square - you know we’d buy it.

Looks like a bad amv. I think they're trying too hard to sell if off as a huge sob love story. Needs less girlishness, more manliness.

Its not really a love story considering as Serah (whos engaged to Snow) basically dies early in the game.

This game will focus on all the characters, giving them back stories, lots of emotions. The only other FF game to do this was VI. There will not be 1 main character (even though Lightning is some what considered the main protagonist)
