New Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer features five minutes of gameplay

A new trailer of Square Enix’s upcoming Final Fantasy Versus XIII has made its way to the web, showcasing over five minutes of gameplay from the action role-playing game — not to mention a series of hilarious English translations that will no doubt amuse you. "The figure that still lies asleep in the Fantasy," eh Squenix? A full sentence, that is not. See, now you have us talking like Yoda.

Silliness aside, the gameplay looks quite promising. It appears to place a heavy emphasis on melee combat, but guns and mechs appear briefly as well. Take a look for yourself below.
