Special Effects Showcased in Latest Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Trailer

If there’s one thing a Final Fantasy release isn’t, it’s easy to create. Hundred, if not thousands of characters, expansive environments and lengthy playtime all lead to some of the most difficult games to produce. With the series’ latest titles, however, one of the most difficult aspects are the numerous special effects shots that must be put into the game. Square Enix is showing these off in the latest video for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which features Lightning and the rest of the cast jumping and slicing through the Nova Chrysalia world.

The game is due out February 14 2014 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Those who pre-order will receive Cloud Strife’s uniform, Soldier’s Band and Buster Sword.
