Oh, and it lights up the night
If you’re still interested in Square Enix’s pretentiously dubbed Fabula Nova Crystallis plotline, then you’ll probably be eager to watch the first trailer for upcoming spin-off Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The video – which shows the titular heroine sporting a fetching new costume and a pair of sunglasses – introduces the game’s apocalyptic countdown mechanic. Essentially, you’ll have 13 in-game days to save the world, but you can lengthen or shorten time by making different decisions. Multiple endings will encourage replayability.
While that certainly sounds like an interesting concept, the game doesn’t look too hot in the trailer embedded below. For a series that’s always prided itself in its stunning visuals, this footage looks extremely bland. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section.
