I don't like that 6 days left timer though.

A few tidbits about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII came from Japanese magazines this week. One important detail is time does stop in the game. Like The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has an in-game clock and events change depending on the time of day.

The clock stops at certain points in the game. Time also stops when you’re in battle so you can take your time while selecting attacks.

Money will be easier to obtain in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII since enemies drop cash after you defeat them. Another tweak is Lightning recovers HP if she’s standing on the field and not doing anything. Sure, that consumes time, but the other options are potions that cost money, eating at restaurants or consuming precious EP which is probably better used to freeze time during a fight.

So after going through hell and back in FFXIII and XIII-2 to prevent the world from ending and succeeding, we're now told here that the world is going to end anyway and all we can do is evacuate a small number of people to a different world? Okay...

If Square is going to do a poor job with the story on all of their spinoffs, they should have just remade XIII with the improved battle system.

You worked out the entire story from a few trailers?
Wow

Oh lord...

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Will See Caius Ballad Return | GamingUnion.net

Quote:

Square Enix has revealed that Caius Ballad, the main antagonist from Final Fantasy XIII-2, will be returning in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

The news came from an interview that was conducted during Japan Expo 2013, involving PlayStation France and Motomu Toriywama, the director of Lightning Returns.

He was asked "We've already seen some of the the main characters from the two previous games, are they going to play an important role in Lightning Returns? Will they become allies or opponents of Lightning?"

As you can see, Toriyama wasn't directly asked about Caius in the question. Instead, the interviewer asked more about returning characters and their roles in Lightning Returns. However, Toriyama took this opportunity to announce that Caius Ballad would indeed be appearing in Lightning Returns.

"Yes, certain enemies will reappear," said Toriyama. "One of these will be Caius, because at the end of XIII-2 there is an uncertainty that hovers around his destiny and whether he survives or not. This mystery will be solved in Lightning Returns."

Since his appearance in Final Fantasy XIII-2, Caius Ballad has gone on to become something of a fan favourite. This was helped immensely by his theme tune, Caius' Theme, which was composed by Naoshi Mizuta. If Caius is to make a full return in Lighting Returns, it could make for a rather bumper cast, with Oerba Yun Fang also confirmed to re-appear. Square Enix has also revealed a return for Snow Villiers, Hope Esteim, Noel Kreiss and... Chocolina.

To pre-order Lightning Returns, you can go here for the UK and here for the US.

For a limited time only, anyone who pre-orders the game will receive a Cloud Strife outfit for Lightning, which will see her wearing Cloud's iconic clothes, but also grants the ability to use his Buster Sword.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is due to release on the 11th of February, 2014 in North America and the 14th of February, 2014 in Europe. It'll be releasing on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Well, looks like the games been reduced to this.




All those outfits. Now the question. Do they even hold a purpose or is this gonna just end up as a dress up Lightning game.

I just couldn't help but laugh at that pic, no matter how "sexy" they try to make Lightning it just looks hilarious.

The non-prom dress costumes in the video look pretty good.

As much of a dressing game as X-2.

Lightning really doesn't look right in frilly dresses and outfits as revealing as the Miqo'te one. She's more suited for... suits.

Square Enix and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s Play Community held a special Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII event, where various key members of the staff got together to talk about the latest features including equipment customization options.

While shops will be selling your everyday swords, shields, and gear; they’ll also sell various ‘decoration’ parts, such as glasses, piercings, pendants and more. These will serve cosmetic purposes, and won’t affect your stats. According to Square Enix, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is a world-driven game, so they wanted to make shopping a little more fun by having various shops around the world that sell regional specialties.

Performance customization will be a huge part in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, too, however. Square Enix felt that RPGs have always followed a pattern of going to town to buy new equipment, beat the next boss, repeat; so, they’ve decided to add a little twist by allowing players to freely customize their own style according to preference.

The three main styles are: Balanced, Magic, and Physical-type. For example, players who aren’t that great at action will be able to customize Lightning’s performance to focus more on defense and HP, so they can take more hits, or go with an approach featuring no defense and very high damage output.

The above video is a look at the new color customization option. The “Custom Color Drive” allows you to change the colors of your equipment by choosing from of a palette of preset colors, or you can customize your own colors and set them yourself. Your equipment will be divided into three main sections, allowing you to color it according to your preference.

This feature also works for collaboration items and other special equipment, so you can dress Lightning in an all-pink SOLDIER outfit, if that’s what you’d prefer.

Additionally, Dengeki’s coverage of the event has confirmed that Vanille will also be reappearing in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Director Motomu Toriyama revealed, “This time, Vanille is being sheltered by a religious organization, known as the “The Order,” who control the city of Luxerion.”

Square Enix will be revealing more regarding Vanille in the next update.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release in February 2014 in the U.S. and Europe for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Vanille was pretty much a given after seeing Fang.

Square Enix had a busy weekend with fans and members of the press during their special Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII event in collaboration with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s Play Community. One of the main topics discussed during their developer talk segment was about the world-driven game and its four continents, including one that was revealed for the first time.

“Yes, the concept known as world-driven is the base, as the time inside the game’s world is always ticking,” says director Motomu Toriyama. “The flow of the 24 hours will show a change in where the people live, along with the scenery in towns, which will differentiate the player’s experience, along with how Lightning will have access [to different things].”

“Again, the project called ‘FF’ usually has a scale of about 100 to 200 people involved in the development,” Toriyama continues. “This time, since there are four continents (the core of the development), we’ve formed units of 10 to 20 people who are in charge of each continent’s development.”

The above image depicts the four main continents of Nova Chrysalia: Luxerion, Yusnaan, Dead Dunes, and the newly revealed “Wildlands”. According to the director, the concept behind the continents is to have the way each continent can be played be different from the others.

Luxerion is a continent that is controlled by an organization known as “The Order”. There are clocks on every corner of the city, as the citizens are constantly reminded of the impending end of the world, while wondering how they’ll live the remainder of their days.

As seen in our earlier report, the theme behind Luxerion is “Murder,” where Lightning will be solving crimes in the Divine City of Light. Luxerion’s playthrough will consist of detective and tracking parts. While the detective parts will be more calm and quiet, the tracking part contrasts these with a more active play style.

Yusnaan is the gorgeous land of enjoyment, that is full parties and festivities every day and night. Getting Lightning into the palace will be one of the main focuses once you get to the bustling city. There are many types of entertainment to enjoy in Yusnaan, which will vary according to the time, so that will also be a big part of the area, including the many time-limited quests you’ll find there.

Toriyama describes the Dead Dunes as a place that appears to have nothing but sand, when compared to the other continents. While most desert areas in Final Fantasy titles consist of walking around and fighting monsters, this time Square Enix have decided to add explorable ruins, making it a simple yet amusing concept behind the land of sand.

The Wildlands is the fourth continent that focuses on nature and the open world play style. The developers in charge of the new continent, were told, “Give Skyrim a run for its money!” by director Toriyama. The degree of freedom offered in the Wildlands will be much higher, where you’ll also get to ride Chocobos to check out various key points of interest.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release in February 2014 in the U.S. and Europe for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Lightning’s Bust Size

An unexpected question posed to the development team at E3 was, “Has Lightning’s bust size really gone from a C to a D-cup since the first two games?”

To answer the question, Square Enix confirmed they did in fact increase her bust size. Because some of the costumes show off a bit of Lightning’s cleavage, it was thought that this choice would showcase the costumes a little more. With over 80 types of wear to collect, this is one little bit of motivation.
Pretty much confirms that the game's focus is Lightning fanservice.
