New Trailer Heralds Lightning’s Return

Square Enix has recently unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming addition to their Final Fantasy series, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

The third game in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Lightning Returns once again puts players into the role of Lightning, heroine of the first game. The setting of the game is that of a world living on borrowed time. Lightning wants to save the world from destruction but it is a race against time as the world approaches doomsday.

The game promises to feature a new battle system focusing more on giving players control of the action while also retaining the more iconic elements of battle in the series. The game will also feature a time system where certain areas, people, and missions are only available during certain times, encouraging players to plan well as they try to save the doomed world.

Lightning Returns has no set release date but it is expected to arrive sometime in autumn 2013.
