Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is still a good few months away but Square Enix seems determined to keep the game front and centre in RPG fans’ minds as we head towards the holidays.
The publisher recently released a lengthy new gameplay trailer for Lightning Returns showcasing a wide open area called the Wildlands where many of the game’s side-quests are found.
In the trailer game design director Yuji Abe talks us through some of Lightning Returns’ new features including a completely revamped battle system where players can walk around and perform actions by pressing each abilities’ corresponding button. You can also switch between ‘schema’ (similar to the job system from previous Final Fantasy games) on the fly by pressing the L1/LB or R1/RB button during battle. Take a look below:
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 11th in North America and February 14th in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this upcoming title from Square Enix’s 1st Production Department.
