After the somewhat disappointing sequel to Final Fantasy XIII, fans had doubts on whether or not they’d ever see the strong willed Lightning again. Fortunately, Square Enix hasn’t given up on the character, or the XIII series for that matter, as the Japanese company will be publishing a spin-off title early next year that features an improved battle system and a new story.
It’s a race against the clock as there are only thirteen days until the end of the world, but the one and only Lightning is up to the task. It’s not really a big deal for a woman of her stature. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will hit the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11, 2014 in North America, with a Japanese release happening later this year.
