Square Enix has released a second episode of their inside look at the making of Lighting Returns, the final chapter of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.
This time around, we get to hear more about the team’s thoughts on the visual stylings of Lightning—and her many new customizable outfits—by famed SE artist Tetsuya Nomura. From there, we’re taken deeper into the design of the game’s world, and how it grew from a single island into a chain of unique geographical regions.
I know opinions on Lightning Returns have been a bit mixed following the game’s Japanese launch, but I’m still really looking forward to playing it. What the team has put together is something that feels familiar yet different—a direction that’s got me intrigued—and what I’ve played of its combat was a lot of fun.
