The official site, updated today tells us more about Noel Kreiss, the character featured the most in the trailer and screenshots so far:
"A young man wielding two unique blades who appears before Serah.
Melee is this fighter's combat style of choice. His dual-wielding method demonstrates an expert technique, which includes combining his swords into one new weapon.
Although straightforward and cheerful, no one knows much about his past, or how he stumbled across Serah in her time of distress"
A new location is also introduced, New Bodhum:
"A town constructed on a shore of Gran Pulse by NORA members and former residents of Bodhum. Surrounded by nature, it seems an idyllic place to live - the occasional monster encounter excepted."
