TGS2013: Lightning Returns Demo Gameplay

September 19th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Lightning will eventually find herself in the Wildlands, a vast and green expanse that is home to open grassland and dense forest alike. As Hope puts it, “red in tooth and claw” is a good way to describe the waste where many vicious monsters await. In the above video, the demo from this year’s Tokyo Game Show, we see Lightning navigate her way through a section of the Wildlands. After several monster encounters Lightning will come across a white chocobo — the Angel of Valhalla being bullied by some manner of foreboding beast.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will release on November 21st in Japan, 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.

  • Ok, so I just had a weird thought when watching the game’s trailer again, and I would just like to hear opinions.

    The character “Lumina” is not human. She is just a form that the chaos took in order to torment Lightning into abandoning her divine mission. Any feedback would be appreciated.

  • Daniel Masterson

    Wow, this game looks more and more impressive. I cant wait till this comes out. Here is to hoping they announce a collector’s edition.

  • Wow, I never expected the game too be that open.

    The graphics are certainly better than XIII-2. The world feels alive, the battle system is fast and dynamic… just what I want from a FF game.

  • AnimaMagna

    That would make sense, given the remarks she makes and her deep affinity with Chaos. Still, I really hope the “new character” they were teasing wasn’t just one of the old cast. But then, I doubt they would call it new if it were. By the way, do you hear Masashi Hamauzu in the Wildland music? Epic!

  • @AnimaMagna The new character was the one seen in the trailer jumping off the roof holding a rope. It kinda looked like Noel, but then, if it WAS Noel, why even bother hiding him? I didn’t watch this gameplay trailer tbh. They’ve messed up the story for me but I at least want to keep my gameplay experience as fresh as possible. But I will be looking forward to hearing Hamauzu’s music yet again. I really enjoyed some of his tracks on XIII-2, so much so that I like to listen to them on-the-go.

  • AnimaMagna

    So (I have watched the trailer by the way) the new character is a totally inert mock-up of the Savior meant to scare Lightning and terrorize the people of Luxerion. That really would be lame.

  • @AnimaMagna We don’t even know anything about the character. Maybe in the extended trailer we’ll see more of him.

  • Ehren Rivers

    There may still be a new character in the extended trailer, but as AnimaMagna said the moment you mentioned doesn’t depict one. It’s a doll, and a fairly incomplete one at that, meant to mimic the appearance of the Savior. This was actually revealed several months back, when it was said that when Lightning arrived in Luxerion an unknown person hung an “effigy of Lightning” that the townspeople at first mistake for an actual person. In an earlier trailer, Noel was seen standing on a building on the opposite side of the plaza as Lightning arrived.


    Here’s a screenshot of the doll, the clearest moment I could find. I checked frame-by-frame, and the person who pushes the doll off the top of the building is not shown.

  • Stevenm281

    The character you say jumping from a building with a rope is actually someone being hanged, the cult do this to girls with pink hair in case she could be the savior.

  • Stevenm281

    I like that we hear Type-0 music in the background… they’re probably showing off Agito.
