Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase took to social media this week for an update on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the third and final installment in the newly-christened Lightning Saga. After a bout of recap via Twitter and Facebook, Kitase informed fans that a major milestone has passed in the game’s development. The team will also make use of playtest focus group feedback to further polish a game that was described by Toriyama as “the most polished Final Fantasy title yet”.
Officially announced at the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event, Lightning Returns is still on track for a 2013 release. The last progress update in September had the game’s completion at 30%.
