Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Hands-on [Capsule Computers]

Zac Elawar from Capsule Computers writes:

"This is the end. The end of the world. The end of Lightning’s story arc. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII releases on February 13, and signals the closing of a chapter in the long-standing series. We went hands-on with a full build (not the finished build) of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title, getting in over 90 minutes of playtime, as part of a Square Enix Showcase. Unfortunately, there is much we are not allowed to discuss or mention, so we apologise in advance if you’re looking for very specific plot details. Then again, you shouldn’t want that spoiled, should you?

As alluded to in the title, Lightning makes a triumphant re-emergence since her “demotion” in Final Fantasy XIII-2, not only as a primary character in the plot, but the player character. In this(effectively) third act of her story, Lightning is tasked with something oh so minor… saving the world, and on a timer no less. No biggie, right?" (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

"Final Fantasy XIII releases on
February 13."
I'll be getting mine on the 11th forget waiting 2 extra days. I just finished XIII-2 was so sadly disappointed.

*SPOILERS*
Where's my Snow? I liked the 1st game way better in everyway. The battle system, the characters, the story, the settings, the music, and the ending. XIII-2 ending Serah goes bam you get visions and end up an ugly statue creepy thing next game. I played as Serah and Noel to get the end to find out I never seen Snow(my fav character!!) since that fight that tomato monster and he disappears and he's an l'ce again! Lightning was only playable in the beginning and was defeated by that easy boss Caius but defeated by Serah and Noel! I bought that DLC to get Snow only to find he's impossible to defeat even after beating the game and lvl 99. I hope Lightning Returns is better but I heard you have an time limit what an shame I hate time limits...ah man. T-T
