DHGF: There isn’t much context given to the events shown in the demo of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. As Lightning, you are following the trail of Snow. You’re never really given a reason why, though throughout her conversations with Hope you discover that Snow has risen to power as a leader in one of the major cities. I also noticed that the time remaining said seven days, which leads me to believe that this is a ways into the game, though without knowing if the “thirteen days remaining” progress in a linear fashion, it’s hard to say. At any rate, the chase begins; though not without clearing some monsters out of your way.
