  1. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is just a little less than a month away from release at this point, and Square Enix is looking to whet fans' appetites not only with a new demo out this week, but also a new trailer that looks at the evolution of the battle system in this final part of the trilogy. Unlike the previous two installments of Final Fantasy XIII, Lightning Returns' battle mode is a solo venture, making it somewhat more action-oriented in turn. You'll need to initiate special tactics, such as staggering the enemy through certain combinations, and know when to guard or evade if you hope to defeat enemies as you progress. Take a look at the trailer below to see what I mean. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 11.
  2. Square Enix released the latest trailer for the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII today, and it highlights several interesting things. For one, Lightning narrates the opening by saying how she's tasked with rescuing lost souls in the current world and guiding them into the next. Hope also figures into the game prominently as a character as well, and seems to be the one overseeing Lightning's quest. Snow and Sarah also show up briefly, as does one other old friend in a surprise appearance: Fang. There is a brief moment where Noel explains his reasons for fighting against Lightning as well. In all, Lightning Returns seems to be wrapping up a lot of loose threads and bringing characters together for an explosive finale, and it'll be interesting to see how it all concludes. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated to release on February 14, 2014 on Xbox 360 and PS3.
  3. http://www.rpgsite.net/previews/447-e3-2013-lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii-handson My apologies to any GP E3 goers that were going to write a preview for this title, but hey, more opinions are always great! Anyway, this Hands-On is pretty interesting. Apparently combat is changed up from previous XIII entries quite a bit, and is *gasp* more interesting than ever before. I personally didn't have too many troubles with the original system really, but it could be dull sometimes. Anyway, give the preview a look!
  4. A new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII reveals that the third entry in the Final Fantasy XIII series will miss a 2013 release and instead launch early next year. This is hardly surprising seeing how Final Fantasy XIII-2 released in January of last year, so it makes sense that Lightning Returns would need at least 2 years to finish and polish up before its release. Another not-so-surprising reveal in the trailer is the appearance of Snow, whose appearance is slightly different this time around and who is still looking for Serah, Lightning's sister. Looks like the two have a little clash at some point in the game as well. And last but not least, the city shown in the trailer is revealed to be called Yusnaan; you can expect to hear more about it over the course of the next 8 months or so. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on February 11, 2014 in the US, and February 14 in Europe. You can view the latest trailer below.
  5. UPDATE: We've added concept art and the announcement video below. As the 25th Anniversary Celebration for Final Fantasy kicks off in Japan, Square-Enix broke news of a direct sequel to Final Fantasy XIII-2 called Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This title will mark the end of Lightning's story in the series, reportedly. Series director Motomu Toriyama says that Lightning will be a much stronger character in this game and will face her final battle, so he asked the character designer to convey the "power" in her eyes. Series producer and showrunner Yoshinori Kitase also noted that the game will be much more active and the world features more interactive environments than before saying that "players can control Lightning as they see fit." He also brings up how players can customize her outfits, and that not only do they affect her appearance but her abilities as well. The controls and movements will be more extensive here as well, with Lightning being able to hang off ledges, pull herself up, duck behind corners, and even move around during battles. As far as the world goes, it will be based on four different islands and touches on three different themes: gothic, mechanical, and fantasy. The story will also feature a real-time countdown of sorts, as the world is set to end in 13 days from the game's outset, so Lightning has 13 days and 13 hours to stop it. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated to release sometime in 2013 for PS3 and 360. Check out concept art and video footage of the game's announcement (with English captions) at the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Celebration below.
