Opening Cinematic Released for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

After a launch trailer odd enough that it couldn’t even be called one, the opening cinematic has been released for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This comes not from Square Enix, but from YouTuber Japanese Entertainment. Thankfully, however, it’s in 1080p and just about perfect quality. The opening is more than five minutes long and very cinematic in nature, featuring some colorful and interesting shots. As it shows the credits, the cinematic takes us through a dance party that goes wrong, the ensuing battle and…more battles and betrayals as classical music plays in the background.

Check it out below. The same YouTuber is also releasing a full walkthrough throughout the next week. Watch that at your own risk.
