Update: Square-Enix UK has uploaded an English version of the trailer
I won’t lie – I’m still shocked that Square Enix has actually decided to make a third in the Final Fantasy XIII series, even though it was initially announced quite a while back. It feels almost surreal to live in a world where a developer forges forth with a set of characters and plot lines despite their cultural status being near-universally panned.
Anyway, Square Enix has jumped the gun on their upcoming E3 show to give the world a new glimpse into the world of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. This time around, Lightning apparently switches outfits depending on the occasion and sports a nifty pair of sunglasses, and there appears to be quite a bit of melodrama going on. Unfortunately I don’t speak Japanese and there are no subtitles, so basically all of it is lost on me.
Stay tuned for the inevitable English version, which will probably make the goings-on much clearer.
