Lightning Returns New Developer Video Released

By Andrew Ogley, 4 years ago
Fans keenly awaiting the Western release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII may be interested in the latest development video released by Square Enix that reveals some of the new game mechanics featured in the new title.

In the relatively short video, the developers explain what the doomsday clock is and how it affects the gameplay as it inexorably counts down the 13 days to the end of the world. The team members at Square reveal what they would do if they were faced with the same problem before continuing with the more down to earth details of the newly enhanced combat system and how much it has changed, along with the new possibilities and customization it presents. Throughout the clip, voiced by Ali Hillis, we are given sneak peeks behind the scenes at the studio, and we get to catch a few glimpses of the new gameplay.

Lightning Returns is already available in Japan. It is set for a February 11th, 2014 release in North America and a February 14th release in Europe.
