Square Enix Announces <i>Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII</i> Release

Today Square Enix unveiled an exciting bit of news by announcing a release date for the long-anticipated conclusion of the Final Fantasy XIII story, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Along with mention of a “first look at the next generation of Final Fantasy,” the company announced a Feb. 11, 2014 release date on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for the forthcoming Final Fantasy game.

According to Game Informer, the new Final Fantasy XIII will feature Lightning as the sole playable character. Lightning will be saving souls to bring into a new world in a race against time with 13-days left until the Apocalypse. The game will operate with a Majora’s Mask-style countdown clock and much like in the previous Final Fantasy XIII installment.

Square Enix is set to announce more news about their upcoming games next week at E3. The company also announced the new MMORPG Final Fantasy game Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, with a Playstation 3 and PC release.
