Final Fantasy fans rejoice, becuase SquareEnix has announced a new chapter of the Final Fantasy XIII Saga, titled  Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, to be released in 2013. At an event in Tokyo marking the 25th anniversary of the blockbuster gaming franchise, we finally got a taste of what the next game will be like, along with some juicy details.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will feature real-time gameplay, where you can control Lightning’s movement in battle. The world is ending in 13 days, with actual day/night cycles, and it’s up to you to save it. There will also be multiple outfits for Lightning which will affect performance in battle, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be her last.

Below you can enjoy quite a few pieces of artwork created for the new game.
