Square Enix has unveiled the concluding chapter to the story of the iconic and popular character, Lightning, at a fan-filled 25th anniversary event of the Final Fantasy franchise held in Tokyo, Japan.


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is a new FINAL FANTASY adventure that gives the player direct control over iconic heroine Lightning in a constantly moving, expansive environment, on a quest to save a doomed world from complete destruction. How will you spend your final days?

"We are pleased to reveal that Lightning is returning as the playable character in this title, and are excited to see how fans react to the more direct battle system and expansive environment that can be explored at will" said Producer Yoshinori Kitase.

Motomu Toriyama, Director added; "Increased levels of player freedom, customisation and connectivity with the real world, will ensure that this concluding chapter will be an exhilarating finale to Lightning’s story."

  • LIGHTNING UNDER YOUR CONTROL - Lightning will be the playable character - with a highly evolved range of techniques for battles and exploring the environment.

  • ACTION-ORIENTED COMBAT - A new battle system gives a level of direct control over the action unlike any FINAL FANTASY game, while having iconic elements that are known and loved throughout the series too.

  • A CONSTANTLY MOVING, BEAUTIFUL WORLD - Stunning artistic direction depicts a doomed world filled with choice and diversity. Living, expansive environments featuring a rising and setting sun provide unique experiences for every player.

  • USE YOUR TIME WELL - A world on a course for total annihilation presents unique challenges; where certain areas, missions, and people will only be available during selected periods. How will you use your remaining time?

  • A CONNECTED EXPERIENCE - Stay connected to FINAL FANTASY and its characters, with unique features that link the in-game world to the real world.
