Over the past few months, Square Enix has released a three-part series of developer diaries that documented their work on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
. At the start of September, part one
introduced gamers to the development studio behind the title and focused on those whose visions are what made the game into the title that players will explore later this month. At the start of December, part two
focused on the game's designers and music composers. Finally, in January, part three
explored how the countdown clock, explorable environments and gameplay integrated in the title and also what the development staff would do if the world was to end in 13 days.
I will be honest and tell you that a lot of the following footage will seem familiar. If you would like to revisit these three videos in a single place while viewing "additional footage and insights" then you have come to the right place. The following director's cut takes players Inside the Square once again for the definitive tour.
With just a few days to wait, gamers will be able to get their hands on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
when the title is released on February 11th in North America and on February 14th in Europe.
