Since first being shown at the 2006 E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles, gamers have been eagerly looking forward to Final Fantasy XIII. They have not been looking forward to the in-game bugs.

Add this interminable jumping bug to the list of bugs that, like the LSD bug, apparently slipped past Square Enix quality control.


In this newly found bug, characters can get stuck in what appears to be endlessly jumping flips. Boing boing forever! (Note: While this footage is shaky, it is certainly possible that it has been looped.)

Character Oerba Dia Vanille does not seem impressed!

However, do not view the discovery of any bugs in FFXIII as a bad thing! The game is out in Japan only the PS3, but won't get its multi-platform release in the West until this Spring. Meaning? Square Enix has extra time to iron out any such kinks hopefully.


Good things come to those who wait. Better things come to those who wait longer. For the rest of us, fingers crossed for downloadable patches.
