Square has released a new video for Final Fantasy XIII-2, called "Further Gameplay Variety."

Inside is a glimpse into the side quests and the Serendipity Casino, which is sure to wring countless hours of side missions and activities. Not surprisingly, Chocobo's are back, and looking as awesome as ever. Unless you hate them, then their return is surely not welcomed.

Those who played the demo may recognize the puzzle section, which entailed stepping on block patterns in the right order to unlock new areas and treasures. It's not surprising that there's more where that came from, and as far as I'm concerned, the more the better.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is coming out next week, January 31.
