Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII strikes this fall worldwide

Upcoming sequel to Final Fantasy XIII-2 coming out for Xbox 360 and PS3.


Square Enix has unveiled the release window of the Final Fantasy XIII-2 sequel, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

The upcoming role-playing game will be out this fall for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and will be released worldwide. The final chapter in the FFXIII saga puts players in the shoes of protagonist Lightning as she slows down the impending end of the world that will happen after 13 days and helps out the immortals in the city of Luxerion.

The game will feature a New Game Plus system and encourages multiple playthroughs, as players are not expected to uncover everything in a single run. The game's combat will mimic a traditional action game, but will feature the implementation of the series' active time battle system and paradigm shifts.
