Yuna, the female lead, is an honest and determined young woman who learns the secret art of summoning and controlling aeonspowerful spirits of yore. These two people of widely different backgrounds and abilities must work together as they journey through the world of Spira. This installment of FINAL FANTASY features a distinct Asian influence, bringing a fresh feel to the characters, music, settings, and story. Voice-overs will be featured for the first time in the series, utilizing the "Facial Motion System."
High-polygon, motion-captured player characters, designed by Tetsuya Nomura, bring lifelike realism to the screen.
The camera will automatically shift its perspective to correspond with the movements of the characters, a feature now possible due to the title being largely polygonal.
Characters will be able to rotate in and out of the party even in the heat of battle, allowing a "tag team" approach to fighting.
