Lightning Heads To Wildlands And Saves A Moogle Village

By Spencer . August 21, 2013 . 12:36am

A new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII shows Lightning fighting with Fang and then fighting against Snow. It almost looks like Snow will turn into a Cie’th. The new area shown in this video is the fourth continent called The Wildlands. Led by Mog from Final Fantasy XIII-2 the moogles live in a village here. Oh, and given how the video ends Sazh won’t be a sad sack the entire game too.


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIIIi comes out on February 11 in North America and February 14 in Europe.

  • AnimusVox

    Dat Fang <3

  • Virevolte

    That yellow outfit will seriously kick some buts.

  • Tonemanzero

    Every time I see this game I think to myself “Well shit, this keeps looking better and better. I better start planing to take the release day off.”

    • ndjn3979

      It is actually looking better. Seems to take the best of the original FFXIII and make something out of it.

  • Robgoro

    Dare I say this actually looks…fun?

  • zaidandzhadow

    What the hell i don’t want to see Snow Dying

    • Tincho D

      Worry not, he’s isn’t going to die. Otherwise Serah would have no reason to be.

  • LightningFarron19

    1:18 to 1:23

    Fang is fighting alongside Lightning. Finally, someone that I WANT to fight along side with is going to help!

    • Arcana Wiz

      maybe they fight together and later fight between, seriously the way the game is heading (everyone hates Light) i can see her being some boss of the game.

      • NewestType

        She was the thief leader who Light was working for in a previous play-trough video. Not discrediting your claim. but they seemed to be on good terms at that point.

  • Nanaki

    I absolutely loved the way that Lightning looked at Snow when he clutched her coat collar. Can’t wait for this.

    • O_O Master Clueless

      Yes, Light preps her falcon punch.

  • Nanaki

    Also that one moogle looks like Locke from FFVI.

  • Yup. Best game in the XIII series =^_^=

  • natchu96

    It would seem likely that Snow’s current l’Cie brand is timed almost on top of the end of the world from what he’s saying . . . at the very least the way these stories turn out the brand won’t hold out much past that most likely. Might even be completed a day or two before it happens.

    You gotta wonder what army training Lightning got back in the day to pick up all those moves.

    • Ehren Rivers

      I’ve actually checked his brand from the E3 trailer against brands of all kinds from the first two games. Snow’s brand in Lightning Returns doesn’t appear to be a normal one, and it is definitely not the same as his brand in XIII or XIII-2. From what I can tell, it looks like all of the stages (1-13) are stacked on top of each other (with Stage 1 on top, Stage 13 at the bottom). It would seem that with the loss of true time, the brand of the l’Cie doesn’t function correctly.

      • natchu96

        hmm, interesting . . .

        He does make it sound like he won’t be around for much longer though . . . wonder why.

        • Ehren Rivers

          Because the world is supposed to end soon (although like most people he’s probably not aware of the thirteen day finish line), most likely.

  • Monterossa

    XIII saga is better than XV from the beginning.

    • Herok♞

      Look I love FF13 saga more then the next person but even I won’t compare it an unreleased game, will it be better only time will tell.

      • NewestType

        Not only that, they are 2 completely different games. I enjoy XIII for the unique things it offers. XV will be a different experience and should be treated as such… when it is released of course.

    • Ferrick

      right, because we all know how XV will turn out right ? right ? oh wait, we don’t

  • Detrimont

    does this mean i can kill Snow off :D??
    so going to do that if i can

  • Detrimont

    Wait, Chocolina was revealed to be Dajh’s baby chocobo, and chocolina was shown in a past trailer, so how are they both existing at the same time, or is chocolina still time travelling?

    • Malon

      I was wondering too…

    • Arcana Wiz

      at this moment every rule of space and time in FF XIII series was alrealdy F*** up and tossed away, if 500 years pass and now one notices i can see that two same beings be in the same time in the game can be possible.

      • Time Sage

        Did you play the Sazh DLC in XIII-2? They were both in the same room at one point.

  • Alexander Aubert

    i misheard the word puff ball….

    • Herok♞

      no he missed it I had to watch it again and he definitely said Fball

      • VietKnight

        Nope he said fluff ball. there was no “k” sound in it.

        • Symbol de Au

          Indeed it was definitely fluffball. I listened to it a few times and when I put the speaker right up to my ear I heard “fluff” clearly.

    • AndyLC

      Fluffball, hahah

      • Alexander Aubert

        fluffball? man i really need to check my ears now

    • SiliconNooB

      I just about spat out my coffee.

  • Herok♞

    Really glad they moved it back the game looks amazing and Feburary has nothing else so far so I will have all the time in the world(maybe only 13 days) to play this

  • KingGunblader

    I get to fight with Fang AND get rid of Snow? Hellz yes.

    • NewestType

      I was thinking the same thing!
      Sorry SNOW! >_<

  • AndyLC

    I’m gonna be honest, from the thumbnail I thought Lightning was fighting Dante hahah!

  • Ric Vazquez

    Final Fantasy fanboy mode on.

  • Arcana Wiz

    it’s me or light face looks more feminine?

  • DuskSharkEX

    Blasted what ball, Sazh?

    • Christopher Nunes


  • SS4Nels

    The outfit where she’s going straight Kill Bill with the kicks and the yellow garb is gonna be ridiculous.

  • kenshinx13

    Now we’re talking! This is a really nice trailer

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    I really like the soundtrack at the start. Suits the scene very well imo. Can’t wait to play this

  • dat yellow and black costume…

  • Vash bane

    WHOA WHOA ….did I just see lighting mimicking a dragoon? O_O
    so not only is she cosplaying but she also use different fighting styles?

    @[email protected] looks like its time to add another FF game to my list lol

    edit: the who will you save make me think it has choices or something?

  • Dillon Rider

    “EY, Blasted F*** Ball” lol

  • theoriginaled
