Square Enix announced on August 31st at their Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event that they will be releasing the conclusion to Lightning’s story in 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The game will be set hundreds of years after FFXIII-2 in Novus Partus, which is made up of four island connected by a monorail and you’ll be fighting against a doomsday countdown of 13-days. Yup…there will apparently be an actual countdown clock in the corner of your screen. Additionally, Lightning may be the only playable character, but gamers will have the ability to customize her look and combat style throughout the game.
You can take a brief look at Lightning Returns:Final Fantasy XIII in the presentation clips from Square Enix.
