Written by: / / No Comments

Square Enix has released the final episode of its three-part ‘Inside the Square’ video series featuring key members of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII’s development team discussing some of the interesting new gameplay mechanics at the heart of this upcoming RPG.

The game thrusts players into a scenario where the world will end in thirteen days, and each 24-hour cycle will be characterised by differing environmental conditions and NPC patterns depending on the time of day. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII also features a far more open world than previous entries in the Final Fantasy series so it’s possible to reach practically any area you can see in the distance.

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.
