Square Enix are set on ensuring the PS2 has life left in it yet, and have unveiled some new FFXII screenshots. As you'd imagine, the male characters in the game give the recent Castlevania leads a run for their money in the androgyny stakes, the hero Vaan in particular.
Story wise, It seems Vaan is your average angry young EMO, who lives on the streets because the evil Archadian Empire has enslaved the people of Dalmasca. He by chance meets Princess Ashe, the true heir to the Dalmascan throne, and together they set out on a quest of enlightenment throughout the land of Ivalice (yes, the same Ivalice from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on the GBA) and along the way they uncover the dark secrets of the Empire, and form a band whose cause is the downfall of the Archadians. We're not sure if there are wookies in this episode, but we'll keep you informed.
Final Fantasy XII will be out sometime late this year, and during the wait you can either watch Star Wars, or check out our six new screens.
