Multiplayer battles discovered in new Final Fantasy Agito XIII trailer

Japanese students have it rough. Not only are they expected to succeed in school, but they must also fight evil in deadly, magical card games. At least, that's what Yu-Gi-Oh! and Final Fantasy Agito XIII seem to tell us.

Agito is the PSP addition to the massive Final Fantasy XIII universe. Like many other PSP games, this RPG is meant to be a multiplayer affair, encouraging PSP owners to connect and battle cooperatively. This trailer finally showcases some of the Crisis Core-inspired gameplay we've heard so much about. (Skip to 1:38 to see non-CG footage.) Too bad Square Enix doesn't plan on releasing this game until 2010 ... or later.
