Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII TGS Trailer Appears

Posted on September 19, 2013 AT 05:13am

Square Enix has released a new Tokyo Game Show trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which features Final Fantasy XIII-2‘s main villain Caius.

Yesterday, game design director Yuji Abe confirmed that players will be able to make monsters extinct in Lightning Returns. If they kill enough of a certain monster its numbers will be reduced to just one left in the whole game world (known as the Last One). This Last One version of a monster will be more powerful and, depending on the monster, have new abilities. Killing this Last One will net you rare items.

It was also confirmed that monsters in Hard mode, unlocked upon completing Normal mode, will drop higher level items, and that shops will stock items that are exclusive to Hard mode.

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.
