WATCH: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trailer details combat system

January 24th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Square Enix has released a new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII detailing the game’s new take on the Active Time Battle system.

The trailer, called “Evolution of Battle,” goes into detail on the fusion of customizable abilities and real-time reactions which define Lightning Returns’ combat. It also offers a brief in-game look at Lightning’s clash with former ally Snow Villiers.

A demo for Lightning Returns went live on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 earlier in the week. Players can explore the game’s Yusnaan province, try out the combat, and unlock an exclusive Siegfried outfit by sharing their scores on social network service Outerworld.

Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII releases on February 11, 2014 in North America and February 14 in Europe.
