Okay, so it's coming out a little later than expected. Many thought it would arrive in the first half of this year.
But as it turns out, Square Enix plans to launch Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 some time this fall . It seems it'll be a simultaneous worldwide release, so good news.
If you didn't already know, the game features the FFXIII protagonist Lightning going solo in her quest to save as many souls as possible before the world ends in 13 days. The setting is the city of Luxerion and characters from the series will make an appearance, as you might've already seen in the new Extended Trailer . The sequel will boast an overhauled combat mechanic that may be reminiscent of Kingdom Hearts and a more free-roaming structure.
For some hardcore followers, it's sacrilege. For others…well, they're trying to be optimistic, I guess.
