If you’re curious about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Square Enix published today a video Q&A with Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Director Motomu Toriyama that has the potential to answer some of the questions that might be floating around in your brain.
They talk at length about the game’s world, the real time system, and even about the setting and the characters that we’ll get to meet. And yes, Hope is still there. We already knew that. No one knows why he still hasn’t been thrown in a lake full of lava, but I guess every developer needs to have some secrets, and the continued existence of Hope is a rather big one.
You can check out below for the video, just make sure that captions are activated, unless you can understand Japanese, of course.
