Today we have more updates and features straight from Square Enix to share with you. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is a new chapter in the adventure that gives us the player direct control over the iconic (and one of my favourite characters) heroine Lightning in a constantly moving, expansive environment, on a quest to save a doomed world from complete destruction. How will you spend your final days?

In terms of release date the best we can tell you is some time this year. Keep your eyes and ears open and I promise to shout loud when I know more.

  • Under our control:

Lightning will be the playable character – with a highly evolved range of techniques for battles and exploring the environment. Customise Lightning with a large range of different outfits and weapons; that affect not only the way she looks, but also her actions and abilities.

  • Action Orientated Combat:

A new battle system gives a level of direct control over the action unlike any Final Fantasy game, while having iconic elements that are known and loved throughout the series too.

  • A Constantly Moving, Beautiful World:

Stunning artistic direction depicts a doomed world filled with choice and diversity. Living, expansive environments featuring a rising and setting sun provide unique experiences for every player.

  • Making Use Of Our Time:

A world on a course for total annihilation presents unique challenges; where certain areas, missions, and people will only be available during selected periods. How will you use your remaining time?

  • A Connected Experience:

Stay connected to Final Fantasy and its characters, with unique features that link the in-game world to the real world.
