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.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Official Site

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.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Final Fantasy Type-0 would be to North America and Europe by an interview Spanish site Vandal had with Kitase. Everyone rejoiced over the fact that the game would finally be coming to our coasts, but then doubt was thrown into the equation when the site removed the paragraph pertaining to the international release.

Thankfully, Type-0′s Ultimania has been released with an interview confirming that Tabata and the team are working hard on the overseas version of the game. It comes with more good news though. Tabata also says he’d like to do a direct sequel to the game (Type-1 as he unsurprisingly calls it) featuring the same characters and world. He even says he’d like to put it on consoles rather than a handheld. It makes sense considering the amount of effort they’ve put into the first, but he said it does depend on player reaction to the first, so buy, buy, buy, if you want more.
