Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII NYCC Demo Features Eight Minutes of Wildlands Gameplay

Posted on October 14, 2013 AT 08:38am

Square Enix has released a new video for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which walks players through the game’s demo that was shown at New York Comic-Con.

The demo features Lightning searching an area called the Wildlands for a rare white Chocobo. It also offers a look at combat, with Lightning switching between “Battle Styles” on the fly–while one is being used the others will recharge. Finally there’s an explanation of the game’s equipment and costume customization, with players able to dye Lightning’s outfits, before Lightning steps into a boss battle against a Chocobo Eater.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is set to release February 11, 2014 in North America and February 14, 2014 in Europe for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
