Have a quick look at the new trailer of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Video is extended version of Jump Festa trailer, showing Lightning's clash with Noel.
I think if lightning was in a different Final fantasy game(a good one that is) like FF7,FF8 or FFX, she would have probably been a loveable character, but FF13 really screwed up her image cause the game just sucks. I forced myself to play though the whole game in hopes that it would get better.. eventually... still hoping..
Ahhh Noel is returning, awesome!
Hehehe. Nice one :)
Final Fantasy XIII is a complete abortion of a Final Fantasy...work on Versus please.
every final fantasy game is an abortion compared to final fantasy 9
It doesn't look very good...
Looks worse than I remember. What's with all the weird platforming part's? it just looks so stiff...and bad.
exactly what I thought, The game looks so not fun
It's good to know this will be the end of the worst period in Final Fantasy history. They're not bad games just really mediocre when compared to the previous games
Exactly. They're not bad, they're average at best. They should have just left XIII where it ended. It had a pretty good ending, and it should have stayed that way.
My main problem with this game: the checkered floors, they are awful. Jokes aside, I don't know why Square Enix is adamant on shoving a one dimensional character like Lightening and her solo narrative that will most likely lack any kind of consistency or depth down our throats. I thought XIII-2 was damage control, it might turn out that they're moving towards a trilogy.
So, they're retconning the story so that future Noel knows Lightning before she summoned and met him? That he doesn't believe that the current Lightning is the real one so will be an... Oh f*** this s***. Story convolution is one thing, but they're trying to create ties to the prior games while saying you don't need to have played the other games to understand the story. They're trying to have it both ways. @iNMyFiN4LH0uR: 13-2 and 13-3 were conceived before 13 had finished production and stubbornly pushed through in an effort to make yearly releases in the franchise. Didn't matter that story would suffer, that there effectively wouldn't be a story, they were just looking at money. The fans who will buy anything.
DAMN! I was hoping for a summer release.
I just got nauseated watching this vid. What the hell has happened to my 2nd favorite rpg franchise of all time. Final Fantasy X was the last real FF, everything else has been abominations from the depths of hell.
I would try this and XIII-2 out (at reduced prices of course) but I refuse to buy any game developed by Square Enix until I get Final Fantasy Versus XIII
holy crap so many f13 haters around here i see good things for this game imo.
Exactly, sure maybe XIII/XIII-2 wasn't the best in the series, i think any FF fan can tell you that one. But by all means that doesn't make it a bad game. I personally enjoyed the two games so far, even accepting its faults. But Lightning Returns looks like it removes the flaws of liner mapping and an automatic battle system. The two main things everyone moaned about. Yet they still whine. Can never please people these days.
This is SE trying to make a fast $$$ i'll pass thank u..
