Lightning’s Return Draws Near

January 16th, 2014 by Tony Garsow

*Video contains potential spoilers.

In just under a month Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will arrive on North American shores for fans anticipating the third and final chapter in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. Square Enix North America has made available new screenshots from the forthcoming game, while Square Enix Japan has started a video series that includes the various bosses of the game. Be forewarned, of course, that potential spoilers are abound.

An English demo made a brief appearance on Xbox Live yesterday, and we assume that it’s premature release was unintended. Despite that, it likely signals a forthcoming demo release for both platforms soon — though if you’re able to navigate the Japanese PlayStation Store you can pick up a Japanese language version to test drive yourself.

We’ll provide you with updates here at Final Fantasy Network when details about the demo emerge.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will release on February 11th in North America and February 14th in Europe. Available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, PlayStation Network users will be able to download a digital version at release (9.6GB space required). A Collector’s Edition for North America will also be available.

    I really hope to get a demo. I already ordered the CE but it would be cool to get familiar with it so I can just jump in when it releases!

  • 1Truth

    There’s no way this game will score 80 or above on Metacritic.

  • Tony Garsow

    I downloaded the Japanese demo from the Japanese PS Store and while it’s quite brief it was enjoyable.

  • Daniel Masterson

    It could get a 0 on metacritic, I will still enjoy this game just like I enjoyed XIII and XIII-2.

  • 1Truth

    Each to their own. bro.

  • Daniel Masterson

    ok…. and its to each their own.
