LRFFXIII

The first batch of screenshots from next year’s LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII have just been released.

The images show off the city of Luxerion as well as some cutscenes and the battle system. The battle system will be more action-oriented in this third installment, giving the player direct control of the character.

The trailer for LR:FFXIII appeared online a couple of days ago and can be seen here. The trailer, which features a track by Masashi Hamauzu titled “Crimson Blitz” will be available for $0.00 on the iTunes music store on December 23rd. Naoshi Mizuta and Mitsuto Suzuki will also be returning to lend their musical talents to the game as they did in FINAL FANTASY XIII-2
