It’s been nearly four years since the release of Final Fantasy XIII, and while it won’t mark the end of the ‘Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy’ series, the upcoming release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is set to conclude the story arc of the titular Lightning.
Granted, after all these years it can be a bit difficult to keep all these story elements straight. The last two games featured different playable protagonists, and with all the time-travelling that was featured in the series’ last outing,even the most die-hard fans of the series might need a bit of a refresher.
It’s quite fitting then that developer Square Enix has released a ‘retro-spective’ (and I use that term quite literally) trailer which recaps the events of the last two games. As a special treat, the video features 16-bit sprites and graphics (not unlike those from Final Fantasy VI), and same goes for the old-school music.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is set to release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 11 in North America, Feburary 13 in Australia, and February 14 in Europe.
