Lightning Returns An Origin Story?

It’s no secret that players have seen a few similarities between Final Fantasy XIII and a certain other game in the series. That’s right, looking at you Final Fantasy VII. Often times, players have even criticized XIII for the fact that Lightning exhibits a few Cloud-like tendencies. And that SOLDIER 1st Class costume she gets in Lightning Returns? Come on Square, not exactly being subtle here. Jokes aside though, the release of Lightning Returns over in Japan has prompted a rather shocking theory to brew in my head: The Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy is a prequel to the infamous Final Fantasy VII. (Final Fantasy VII, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3)

S-E really should've planned a worldwide release day.

This game is getting spoiled so much, everywhere. 0_o

Oh well, I suppose some people enjoy spoilers.
