Lightning Returns: FFXIII Opening Cinematic Reveal

By Andrew Ogley, 5 years ago
Following the release of the extended trailer, Square Enix have released a new video clip of the opening cinematic for their upcoming title,

The new clip opens with a view of the city of Yusnaam, which is alive with banquets and festivals. As the cinematic continues, an epic battle erupts between Lightning and her old ally, Snow. The five minute long video again shows the gorgeous looking CGI that we have come to expect from the Final Fantasy series.

Additionally, following on from the previously released costume video, Square Enix have revealed yet another new costume for our eponymous heroine, this time featuring her Aerith Gainsborough garb.

Finally, to wrap up the latest media, we also have a couple of new in-game screenshots.
