Square Enix have shared new screenshots of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. You can find them below, and catch up on our recent impressions of the game here.
In North America and Europe, Lightning Returns has been delayed to February 11th, 2014. Japan will get the game a little earlier in November.
its looking good~~ can’t wait.
I need this game now!!!! I love the whole XIII series!
Edit: 6th pic down on the right, i love that one! Purple for the win!
Dat cactuar never fails to amuse me lol
“Found some fertilizer now, did ya?”
Hmmm… Wonder what happened to giving LIghtning a happy ending. Seems Noel is off the list on potential happy endings for her after seeing the trailer so… Forever alone Lightning? That isn’t a happy ending at all!
Maybe she is happiest in solitude?
As a shy person in my youth Solitude isn’t happiness.
You would think after spending 500 years in crystal she would be dying to throw an end of the world party or something.
Depends on the person.
Some people might find it to be torture.
Maybe I’ll get my LightXHope ending. Yeah I wish.
I suspect Lightning’s ‘Happy Ending’ would just be having her sister back.
I’d certainly enjoy some LightxHope romance, but you know, some people just don’t count romance as a priority.
Okay, this is not a complaint but I just have to say it. The world is about to end in 13 days the lady is dress shopping?
A girl needs to do what a girl needs to do.
If a woman wants to look fabulous on judgment day, I say more power to her.
you’d be surprised how many people want to have their doomsday look just right. I’ve got my leather high waist shorts and spiked shoulder pauldrons in a box marked “Apocalypse” instead of useful things like provisions. I figure if you wear enough high heels while the earth is splitting open, someones bound to save you.
I prefer the japanese boxart more (It’s pretty much the same only the picture of Light is bigger and central)
…Is that second screenshot Lightning summoning something? It looks like the same pose when she summons Odin. I hope the summons are back! Could just be wishful thinking though. The screenshot of Snow vs Lightning looks epic.
Gotta say I’m liking the enemy designs so far!
the cactus is definitely the highlight of the 13 series lol
As I said previously, day one purchase for me.
this need to be realesed soon to put and end to the mess this lightning saga has been…
Hmm….needs more pa-Sazh.
I’m liking that cover art, and the game is looking pretty sexy now too =^_^=
Why are the FF13 games so beautiful
Alot of people didn’t like it at first, but i always loved Lightning’s new costume.
The purple one seems fancy.
TBH I hated it as well. I thought the shield was hideous until I saw it function in the trailer.
As far as turning Lightning into a demigod is concerned, I prefer her Valkyrie costume.
I miss her original costume….
Ya know, I always thought Light was pretty but damn she looks good in this, I don’t know what it is.
Of course, Snow is prompted to fight Lightning. I wonder if being immortal has caused him to see “heroes never die” as ironic.
That background for the cover…..uuuuuuugly. Seriously white with some lame ass blur effects doesn’t look good ANYWHERE. :/
Well in any reason pretty hyped~
It’s looking good though… who asked for so many FFXIII ? :P
could someone explain what that weird green dude in the last picture is?
You mean the giant cactuar statue?
It looks curiously similar to the Portal symbol….
Of course Japan gets the better cover art and an earlier release date. *sigh*
The screenshots are beautiful, but that cover art…… ;-( I want the one Japan has.
