Final Fantasy 13 was released in 2009 for the Playstation 3, but the first prototypes for the game were created on the ps2 prior to the release of FFXII.In this page we can see some pics from the old-gen version that were recently published in two official japanese artbooks / guides. Unfortunately, it seems that Square did only some early testing of the battle system before switching the development to the Ps3. Even the characters (Yuna and Rikku from FFX) are placeholders, but, interestingly, in the last screenshots they appear to be cell-shaded.
Thanks to Proto1 for the contribution!
