In my hands-on preview, I talked about how Final Fantasy XIII-2's trying to shake things up a bit. You'll find some new things in these screens, including a bizarre new character who'll be popping up throughout the game. The woman in the feathered suit is Chocolina, a flamboyant chicken woman who's a traveling merchant in FFXIII-2. She'll be providing the usual hook-ups and providing some comic relief when the sequel comes out next year.
