There may be some debate over what actually constitutes a bad Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII cameo, but we’re pretty sure that we can all agree that the Chocobo Eater is not a character that any of us would like to see. The beast first appeared in Final Fantasy X, leaving us distraught at the idea that anyone would want to feast on our feathered friends. And now it’s back, chomping on a white winged bird thing.

Fortunately, the franchise’s pink haired protagonist is more than a match for the carnivorous critter. The video below shows the titular heroine kicking the absolute stuffing out of the creature, before attending to the injured Chocobo’s wounds. Drown out Hope’s whining voice, and this legitimately looks amazing. Remember when developer Square Enix said that high-definition towns were too hard to render? Well this game has them, as well as awesome customisation options and a super speedy battle system. Unbelievably, we’re actually excited...
