Final Fantasy XIII RETRO-spective January 30, 2014

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

The third entry in the Final Fantasy XIII series, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, is coming in just a few weeks.  To help prepare anyone interested in picking it up who may not have played any of the previous Final Fantasy XIII games, Square Enix has produced a FANTASTIC retrospective on the series story, with a little twist.  Instead of cutting together gameplay footage from the game’s CGI cutscenes, this new video is done very much in the style of the classic 16-bit RPGs like Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III is the US SNES version’s name) and Chrono Trigger.  This could have been done because that era is considered by many to be the finest era in the history of Console RPGs.  Well, check out the video below to see for yourself.  It really puts the RETRO in retrospective.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is coming February 11th, 2014 to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.  A Collector’s Edition for the game is for sale exclusively through the Square Enix Online Store.  Anyone who preorders any version of the game from a participating retailer will get an exclusive Lightning costume based on Cloud’s outfit and Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII.
