GamesCom 2013: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Goes Overboard With CG Hair

Posted by Robert Ramsey

How much does this cost

Square Enix has always been known for its love of CG cutscenes, but we think that the opening part of this new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII might be taking things a touch too far. It's almost like moody heroine Lightning and gritty-rebooted Snow exist purely to show off their designer hairstyles, despite the imminent end of the world that they keep banging on about.

Thankfully, the video is also full of gameplay which features some slick looking battles and some silly looking new costumes. Quirky father Sazh makes an appearance too, and although we honestly expected his afro to have had a massive overhaul, he remains unchanged. Do you think that you could pull off these dos?

Sadly, at 32 I don't really have that much hair to pull off any do at all.

Why in the world isn't Sazh's hair bigger?! Lightning's boobs are bigger; the fro should be enhanced as well!

Hasnt FF13 jumped the shark yet? Admittedly I wasnt a big fan of the 1st game but between this and 14 and versus FF is completely out of control. And does the PS3 need a new FF13 game in Feb 2014?

Is Snow auditioning to be the new-new-new Judas Priest lead singer?

Hey, Snow finally got that dead animal out of his hair! It may have been a bird of some kind. Speaking of dead animals, I remember when Moogles used to be cute. Now they all look like bee stung little horrors that need burning with fire.

I must have watched this like 50 times. Surprised pushsquare upload it, since there were several trailers in the past month or so that wasn't. The only thing I am bummed about at this point is that the release date for the west is several months after Japan.

I am an absolutely HUGE Final Fantasy fan. I even loved 13 and 13-2 but I feel like passing on this one unless it comes out for PS4. In a weird state that spending any money on PS3 games feels like a waste.
