Full Cinematics Revealed for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
The opening sequence to a game can tell a lot about it. Things such as character interaction, storyline foreshadowing, right down to the challenging battles to come, there’s more than just a pretty video to segue the games launch. Today, Square Enix revealed the full trailer to the upcoming Final Fantasy title.
The opening sequence delivers a glimpse into the city of Yusnaan, which is ruled by Snow as the Patron. The trailer also shows off some turmoil amongst characters, such as the tension between Lightning and Snow.
“The city is alive with lights and fireworks, and the people wander the streets as if in a dream.
This is the third region of the game world, after Luxerion and the Dead Dunes. Only a short time remains before the world ends, but the city is alive with banquets and festivities, the people free to indulge their every desire. Snow the Patron rules over it all and maintains the peace.”
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for launch on February 11, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 .
