Lighting Strikes a Third Time in New FF13 Trailer
The first trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 has arrived, and shows off some of the new moves and mechanics being introduced to the franchise.
Billed as “the final journey of Lightning,” LR: FF13 features the pink-haired protagonist in yet another adventure, this time taking place in Novus Partus. The trailer features a lot of one-on-one combat, though the fights look true to form from previous Final Fantasy 13 entries.
The biggest surprise is all the new platforming abilities Lightning apparently has, such as jumping, climbing, and ducking. Exploration in FF13 typically didn’t involve complex navigation, and it’s interesting to see the new mechanics at play. Lightning also has a new look, which Polygon says will be customizable. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 is due out in 2013.
Take a look at the trailer below, and let us know whether or not you’ll be back in the saddle for another journey with Lightning.
