The Evolution of Battle in Lightning Returns

We are just mere weeks away from the return of the incredibly popular tomboy protagonist, Lightning, so what better way to get you pumped up than a look at the enhanced combat system. While the set up for the past Final Fantasy XIII games have been somewhat disappointing, both in story and structure, it’s the entertaining and fast paced combat that keeps the series evolving.

In Lightning Returns, there are various new and modified mechanics within the ATB battle system that will hopefully revitalize the XIII name. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be out February 14 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
