Final Fantasy XIII Logo
Hello all. Welcome to my walkthrough of Final Fantasy XIII. I am your wonderful guide, Koharu Nami. I should warn you that this is my first walkthrough so it could be horrible.

This is also the first numbered Final Fantasy that I have completed. I love this game more than anyone you probably know. Expect small errors. If you spot one feel free to fix it, but this is my walkthrough, so please don't do major edits without my permission. Thank you. :)

Good to know... Edit

  • I wrote this walkthrough when I was 15, I'm sorry for any annoyance caused.*(I have edited and removed most stupid comments, but...I don't know...)
  • I affectionately call this game The XIII.
  • I don't have an Xbox 360 but this walkthrough will include Xbox 360 controls.
  • My walkthrough is littered with emoticons.
  • I will try very hard to make a guide on how to get all 36 trophies/achievements.
  • This game is more like a beautiful shiny movie with buttons, which is not a bad thing.
  • I like shiny things...like this game.
  • My play style is the kind that likes to skip fights and get to cutscenes cause story is mainly what I play for.

Gameplay Edit

Exploration is simple. The Playstation Lstick Neutral stick moves the people and moves up and down the menu. The Playstation Rstick Neutral moves the camera around. Playstation-Button-X/Xbox Button A selects. Playstation-Button-C/Xbox Button B cancels. Playstation Button S/Xbox Button X opens the map of the area. Playstation-Button-T/Xbox Button Y opens the menu. L1 outside of battle will open up the shroud menu.

In battle, use the D-pad to select whichever action you want to do. Pressing Playstation-Button-T/Xbox Button Y before the ATB bar loads will execute the attacks that have loaded. L1 will open up your Paradigm menu. R1 will bring up enemy info. Pressing the start button will pause the game. There's more about the buttons but I'll get into that in a separate section.

Paradigm and Crystarium systems Edit

Ffxiii changing paradigm

Paradigm menu in battle.

I won't go too deep into the Paradigms since the game will go in depth later on. There are 6 Paradigm Roles in this game: Commando, Ravager, Sentinel, Saboteur, Synergist and Medic. When you combine any one of those together you get a Paradigm.

The leveling system is shiny and makes cool noises. First you need to select a Paradigm Role. To advance in the Crystarium you must hold down Playstation-Button-X/Xbox Button A and watch the shinyness move along the line to different nodes until you run out of CP (Crystarium Points). To earn CP you must kill enemies. HP, Strength, Magic and Role Level nodes can be found in all Roles. Certain abilities are restricted to the Paradigm Role it belongs in. Techniques like Quake are found in Roles different than that of another character. You can find Accessory slots and ATB gauges within certain Roles as well. The Crystarium system is limited and will expand as you get further in the game, so attempting to be all powerful is futile.

As the Crystarium expands, you can press Playstation Button S/Xbox Button X and get a full view of that character's whole Crystarium. Some characters' Crystariums are in an awesome looking shape. For example, Snow's full Crystarium is in the shape of a snowflake (at a certain angle). Surprising huh? Onto the main event.
