Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Square Enix has released a new set of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII screenshots.

Xbox 360 owners can now download a demo of the game, too.

View the screenshots at the gallery. The game is due out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11 in North America and February 14 in Europe.

        Whatever I’ll YouTube it xD

    Well, that was a thing. If it was an action RPG instead of this thing they’ve got going on now, I’d probably buy it.

    Or, at least patch in the ability to run and dodge during combat.

    Story made no sense, but I bailed half-way through XIII and never played XIII-2, so it’s no surprise.

    Will its almost time to put an end to this story of FFXIII

  • new_tradition

    The demo got pulled from Xbox. Seems it wasn’t supposed to be out yet.

    I hope that means the demo will be out next week for both PS3 and 360 if it’s already in the system so to speak.

    I’m trying to play through the Japanese one, but not understanding the language is making things a bit difficult (case in point: I got to that first boss, and I don’t understand why it respawned right after I beat it O_o).

      Wonder why they didn’t just say “oh well” and keep it up. Didn’t seem like there was anything wrong with it. Game ran fine.

      • new_tradition

        Might have been a marketing thing. Who knows xD

        Can I ask, is the demo the one where it has that opening CGI?

        • Six

          The demo starts off with a CGI scene that has Snow and Lightning fighting for whatever reasons, and he ends up making some really crazy ice thing.

          I had no idea what was going on.

            So, you’ve already went through the demo for the Xbox 360? How was the quality of the CG cutscenes? Please tell me that Square Enix has finally stopped using Bink and switched to a more efficient codec for the Xbox 360 version.

            • Six

              They looked good. I remember the CG cutscenes in FFXIII being pretty rough around the edges, but these were fine.

    For me “Tales of Xillia 2” gets priority over Lightning Returns. While i am a Final Fantasy fan through and through but in recent Years SE hasn’t been impressive in their works.
