Add this title to my (lengthy) "to buy" list: Four Warriors of Light (Final Fantasy Gaiden)

I've been keeping an eye on Square-Enix's soon-to-be-released Final Fantasy side story, Four Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden, since it was unveiled earlier this year.

Although Square-Enix has posted a number of gameplay clips on the DS title's official website over the past few months, I don't think they've released an actual trailer until now. Here it is:

Instead of sharing my own reaction to the trailer, I'd like to share the reaction "batbeg" posted in the game's official thread over at NeoGAF:

"Giant baby-headed octopus will give me nightmares. Music is godly. Graphics are insane. Music is incredible. Art direction is fantastic. The music has it's hands down my pants right now."

I'm especially in agreement with batbeg when it comes to his (her?) second, fourth and sixth comment :)

Anyway, Four Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden will be released in Japan on Oct. 29. If Square-Enix doesn't announce a stateside release soon, I'm going to import this sucker--despite the fact that I don't know a lick of Japanese.

That video is apparently not available in my country. Drag.

Hmmmm, I don't think it has anything to do with the country you're in, unfortunately - it looks like the clip has been made "private" for some reason.

I can't seem to find any other YouTube videos of the TGS trailer right now (is Square-Enix removing them?), so your best bet is to go to the official site for the game (http://www.square-enix.co.jp/hikarino4sensi/).

After skipping the intro, click on the button that says "TGS 2009" (along with some Japanese words I don't understand).
