Game Overview

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is a role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It will be released on November 21, 2013 in Japan, on February 11, 2014 for North America and February 14, 2014 in Europe. Lightning Returns is set to conclude the Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga.

The game takes place in the new world of 'Novus Partus', contains new characters and will also feature a new version of the 'ATB' battle system, but Lightning will be the only playable character. Unlike the previous two games of the saga, Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning Returns is described as a world driven game, in which the players' choices and actions will affect the world around them.

Did they just adjust down again? This
was at over .90 just a month ago if I
remember correctly.

The sales have been quite good this
year, this might do over 1 mil, which
isn't bad. The series has been killed
on Xbox though. The FF13 series has just
not gone down well with Xbox fans at

@ishiki Spot on, the battle system is
fast and engaging and offers a lot
depth, It requires planning and
precision before and during the battles.

damn formatting.

it's got the best battle system out of
any FF imo. And the best balance of
challenge in a FF game. It's the most
interesting RPG mechanically since Demon
Soul's for me.

The dialogue,
Framerate, and textures are quite
The story is more thematically
interesting than people give it credit
Imo it's the bad dialogue of
which is worse than the already bad
dialogue of the
XIII series, in a
series that's largely always had
dialogue issues outside of a couple
(Compared to like SMT,
Planescape, etc).
