Lightning Returns is the recently announced conclusion to the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, unveiled at the Final Fantasy 25th anniversary event. For those of you not in the know, the game will feature Lightning as the sole playable protagonist and will be the last game she stars in. Following the recent reveal of the all new title, developers spilled the beans to Famitsu about Lightning Returns. Motomu Toriyama, Yoshinori Kitase, Yuji Abe and Isamu Kamikokuryou have joined together to detail everything from gameplay to art direction to story details, so strap yourself in.

Special thanks for forum member Ramenzilla for finding this.


The continuation of the Final Fantasy XIII series has just been announced at Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event live on stage. The game entitled “Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII” is the conclusion of Lightning’s story set to be released in 2013.

The game takes place hundreds of years in the future in a world known as Novus Partus, a place consisting of four continents which are linked by a rail system. However, in this future, Novus Partus is only 13 days away from doom. Lightning’s actions need to be carefully considered without wasting time or they’ll progress time on the doomsday clock. Players will have the ability to rewind the clock to retry if their actions are wasted. Artwork of a major city known as Lexerion can be seen below.

As the only playable character, the battle system has been drastically changed giving her the ability to block in real time and drain the doomsday clock to her advantage. More customisation is a key feature now we’re limited to one character. Lightning’s looks and combat style can be changed with more control than ever before.

Unfortunately a trailer was shown to the press but not made public on the Nico Nico stream, so for now, take a look at the new artwork and images released of the upcoming title below. An official website for the game has been launched telling us to come back on September 4th for more details. Hopefully we’ll see the trailer then.

Square Enix have launched a new page on the Final Fantasy XIII website, ‘A Storm Gathers’.

The page is basically just a news brief of the upcoming Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event and its XIII Saga related announcement. The event, as has been posted before, will take place on September 1st and will be livestreamed over Nico Nico Douga.

You can access the page here.

Square-Enix has announced that their event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the beloved Final Fantasy series will in fact be streamed live for the viewing pleasure of their fans. To be held on September 1st and 2nd, the event will be held over six stages with the main event- the reveal of the continuation of the Lightning Saga- being shown on the 1st at 11:30.

For those of you lucky enough to be able to attend the event in person, it’s to be held in Shibuya where one can win a raffle in order to view the show live. For those of us not lucky enough, the event will be streamed on Nico Nico Live.

In a recent post on their official North American website, Square Enix has detailed their plans to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Final Fantasy during PAX Prime. A live display of the series will take place on August 31st and Square will be giving out some nice prizes for participating fans.

Interesting to note of course, is a small mention of a presentation by Yoshinori Kitase, Motomu Toryama and Isamu Kamikokuryo in what SE is touting as a “special video message” which will detail the future of Lightning, the heroine of Final Fantasy XIII.

This will more than likely coincide with the information in the presentation Square Enix has planned for Japan on September 1st. As always we will be reporting every detail as soon as it is revealed so be sure to check back here in just two weeks!

A rumour started by Kotaku last week has been debunked by Square-Enix’s own Yoichi Wada. He laughs at the rumour and goes on to explain that he has just left one of his regular meetings regarding Versus, and that we’d all be very impressed by the presentation shown. Well, time to show it then.

“It seems someone is spreading a false rumor about Versus being canceled. Heh, just a few moments ago a regularly scheduled meeting for Versus ended. If you were to see the city etc. presented today, you’d wouldn’t be able to stand from surprise, lol.”

Square Enix isn’t done with Final Fantasy XIII yet. Today they have announced a 25th anniversary event for the franchise where they will announce the continuation of the Final Fantasy XIII series. The event which is taking place from August 31st until September 2nd will feature a Final Fantasy XIII stage event entitled the “Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga: New Developments Presentation”.

The presentation will be hosted by Toriyama and Kitase as well as other members of the development team. No details other than the name of the event are given but the possibility of a Final Fantasy XIII-3 is obviously on everyone’s minds. Stay tuned and check back at 11:30 on September 1st, Shibuya time.

Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event Portal

In spirit with E3 this week, Square Enix has finally released video footage and screenshots from their tech demo for the Luminous Engine, titled “Agni’s Philosophy”. And, frankly, what you’ll be able to view in this demo is incredible. It’s obvious that Square has put a lot of time and effort into perfecting this engine, and personally, I’m REALLY excited to see what they’ll do with it. Chances are, it’ll be used for the next generation of Final Fantasy titles on Sony’s and Microsoft’s yet-to-be-announced consoles, but for now, take solace in knowing that their upcoming projects are going to look absolutely stunning. And yes, all of this is in real time.

Check out the video below.

We’ve started a thread for it here, so tell us what you think!

Thanks to Agent Dunham for the article and screens, and to Lymle and Ffamran mied Bunansa for the video.
