Square Enix also added in an evade command which is assigned to a button. Press it at the right time and Lightning will move out of the way. Dodging enemy attacks also sets Lightning up for a counterattack. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII uses a new battle system where different attacks are assigned to the four face buttons. Lightning can change her garb in battle to change which attacks she has kind of like the Dressphere system from Final Fantasy X-2.


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release this fall on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
