Final Fantasy XIII was felt very easy to some gamers, myself included, other than some of the Cie’th Stone mission monsters. Because of this, Square-Enix has decided to up the difficulty of boss fights to increase the fun and difficulty for aforementioned gamers. I think this is a great idea and makes me excited for the release of the game even more.
Along with upping the boss difficulty, Square-Enix is also adding in an Easy Mode, originally introduced in Final Fantasy XIII International Edition Ultimate Hits, for those gamers that are either worried about the difficulty, or found Final Fantasy XIII challenging already.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 releases next year in North American on January 31th.
