Square Enix has unveiled the concluding chapter to the story of the popular character, Lightning, at the 25th anniversary event of the Final Fantasy franchise held in Tokyo, Japan.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is a new FF adventure that gives the player direct control over iconic heroine Lightning in an expansive environment, on a quest to save a doomed world from complete destruction.
“We are pleased to reveal that Lightning is returning as the playable character in this title, and are excited to see how fans react to the more direct battle system and expansive environment that can be explored at will,” said Producer Yoshinori Kitase.
Lightning will be the playable character - with a highly evolved range of techniques for battles and exploring the environment. Customize Lightning with a large range of different outfits and weapons; that affect not only the way she looks, but also her actions and abilities.
A world on a course for total annihilation presents unique challenges; where certain areas, missions, and people will only be available during selected periods.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is due for release in 2013.
