    News Post Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII First Trailer

    The first trailer likely meant for the Jump Fiesta has been accidentally released early. Which means that youtube already has it while it has been pulled from other places. So the trailer is likely to be pulled from various youtube places in time.



    The areas of the environment show off what they had concept art of before. Though it looks like interaction with the game is still very similar to past games. So it has not shifted as significantly as some might have feared with their announcement of the game. Lightning in several scenes is shown with different equipment, a shield and a longsword. But her clothes remained unchanged, they may not be wanting to show it off.

    The combat looks like it is modification of the same combat system from FFXIII and FFXIII-2. Though there seems to no longer be sections of bars that need to be filled. Actions do consume an action bar like in past games and different actions consume different amounts. There was an additional stat present, but it is not clear what it controls. It also looks like there is no longer a menu to go through the different actions. It seems you have only 4 actions per paradigm, you may be able to swap out the actions in the paradigm.

    Hope narrates most of the trailer confirming in some respect that he is going to be present in the game, as previously stated. Though Lightning is only ever seen in the trailer. She mentions finally having awoken from her sleep, making reference to the events of FFXIII-2. The fate of everyone else is unknown. There seems to be a religious aspect to the game if Hope's narration is anything to take away from the game. But details on the story is still slim.

    It will be weird if Lightning is the only controllable character. Understandable being about her return. Still a rpg with one character will be alien. The game seems to mix action type games w/ rpgs even more.

    Once more with 13 days before the world us going to end. I wonder if Caius will be present or if they'll finish the story. And perhaps finally show the god Bhunivelze or Lindzei & Pulse. The story won't go where I would like it to, leaving dissappointed onve more in FF XIII's universe.

    It'll definitely be a little weird, but other Action RPGs do have limited numbers of playable characters. It is certainly uncharacteristic for a FF game, but we'll get to used to it.

    I suspect that we'll get some answers. Probably not everything, but I think we'll get more than you figure. It should be the final game in the FFXIII series I think, Versus notwithstanding of course. So they can't really leave us with too many unanswered questions.

    Thanks, I figured it would happen eventually. I tried to find an official video from Square Enix's channel, but nothing. So at least for now I edited the post to have the working video in there. The audio seems a little clearer than the last time.

    Yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to it. They always end up doing something different. And this one is going to be very different. So I'm up for something new from them. Still think they should have just stuck with FFXIII-3, no sense in breaking with patterns at this point.
