E3 begins in just three days time with the big guns making their all-important keynote speeches, starting at 12:30 PM EST with Microsoft and their next generation of games. Despite this, many developers and publishers release new information about their game in the week running up to the big event so that the news doesn't get lost in the chaos. Although Square Enix will be appearing at E3 with a list of games that includes THIEF
and Murdered: Soul Suspect
, they've decided to show off their new information for http://www.trueachievements.com/Lightning-Returns-Final....htm
before E3 starts.
As everybody had guessed by the game's title, Lightning has returned. Another familiar face that will be returning is that of Snow Villiers. Dressed all in black, Snow has come back to fulfil the prophecy that aims to stop Lightning in her tracks.
The new trailer sees the characters meet again. How will things work out?
If you can't view the trailer, take a look at the latest batch of screenshots. They focus on the "lively city of Yusnaan" and some of the "colossal monster battles" that Lightning faces throughout her adventures. The new action-oriented battle system is also on display.
The theme song for the trailer, The Savior
, was composed by Naoshi Mizuta. We have a trailer with a bit of an insight into the process for that too:
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
is due to be released on February 11th, 2014 for North America and on February 14th for Europe.
