A few tidbits about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII came from Japanese magazines this week. One important detail is time does stop in the game. Like The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has an in-game clock and events change depending on the time of day.
The clock stops at certain points in the game. Time also stops when you’re in battle so you can take your time while selecting attacks.
Money will be easier to obtain in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII since enemies drop cash after you defeat them. Another tweak is Lightning recovers HP if she’s standing on the field and not doing anything. Sure, that consumes time, but the other options are potions that cost money, eating at restaurants or consuming precious EP which is probably better used to freeze time during a fight.
