Relive Final Fantasy XIII in a retro style in this new Lightning Returns promo By Erren Van Duine on January 29, 2014 at 11:43 AM

With the western release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII approaching fast, Square Enix has put out another promotional video for the series – although its format is something neither you nor we could have expected. The video re-tells the story so far – events seen in Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 – in the style of the classic Super Nintendo Final Fantasy titles, complete with retro graphics, not-entirely-accurate but still original use of SNES-style sound fonts for music & sound effects and a neat little sense of humor about parts of the game.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is available across North America on February 11th and Europe on February 14th. The game will also be available for download through the PlayStation Network for $59.99 with a Collector’s Edition of the game being sold exclusively through Square Enix’s online store for $89.99.
