He focuses in on the biggest city in the region, Lexerion.

A direct-sequel for consoles, the game is Lightning’s last battle. It “is much more active, and the world features much more interactive environments than before,” according to producer Yoshinori Kitase. “Players can control Lighting as they see fit.”

You will be able to ‘exhaustively customize’ Lightning in a number of ways. She will have a large number of costumes, and her abilities will change depending on which weapons and armor she has equipped. And there are some big weapons! She is also now able to jump, hang off ledges, duck, and hide behind ledges.

“This is the most customization you’ll be able to do with a Final Fantasy character,” said a Square Enix rep.

“The level of control is at an all new level. You will be able to control Lightning’s movements while in battle.”

Lightning Returns is set in an area called Novus Partus. Its biggest city is called Luxerion. The game’s story is centered around the concept of a “Doomsday Clock,” a 13-day countdown to the end of the world.

“Every region, every locale is subjected to this clock,” said a Square Enix rep. There will be a day and night cycle, and shops will open and close based on this clock. A monorail system, which connects to the islands of the world, is even subjected to the clock. You will have the option of adding more time to the clock in order to slow the world’s demise.

One other tidbit: the game will have some sort of Facebook connectivity.

The game will launch for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.

from the same article from IGN:
The most startling change to Lightning Returns comes in the form of the doomsday countdown. According to Square-Enix, the world will end after 13 days, and a massive clock will count down constantly in the corner of the screen to indicate this looming deadline. Any action players take, even taking the monorail from place to place, will spend time and hasten the end of days.

With Lightning as the only playable character, players will have unparalleled control over customizing her looks and combat style. The battle system itself, a greatly modified version of the previous two, will feature real-time elements including direct control of Lightning's movement and her attacks, as well as time-based moves that drain the doomsday counter. Lightning Returns will also include a real-time block system, designed to make battles much more active and time-based. Even dying mid-battle will activate a prompt to give players the choice to rewind their mistakes at the expense of the timer.

This looks good! :bigmouth: Malamang di na nila ibabalik ang classic battle system like previous FF (FFX below), maybe because action-rpg na ang trend ngayon. :lol: IMHO dapat lang na ganyan kasi nag eevolve din naman ang gaming. Trying new things out and exploring more options. :agree:

doomsday countdown? sounds like the original valkyrie profile's countdown to ragnarok. lahat ng ginagawa may bawas sa oras. smells like multiple endings eto. kaso nga lang wala siyang mga 'einherjar' kasi solo lang daw.

looking forward to this :agree:

So free roaming pero may time limit? :huh:
Lord, grant me the strength to be content where I am, the patience to wait on Your timing, & the faith to remember that You have Your hand always on my heart. Amen.

Di ko pa tapos yung ff-13! Haha, pero tatapusin ko na, busy lang sa school eh. So far maganda naman!! Altho spoiled na sakin ang lahat ng mangyayare. Bilib ako sa graphics at gameplay (whut) pero sobrang linear nga nung game, ilang oras nako naglalaro ang latest lang na customization is yung crystarium... Tsaka yung equipment upgrade. Pero gusto ko pa den siya !!!! Fanboy eh......Kaya bibilhin ko din ang ff xiii-2 at itong lightning returns in the future, kase para sakin, graphics pa lang, ulam na. :)

Sana magka-balita naman yungFFvs13 nakakaexcite din yun eh.
