We Played Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for an Hour, These Are Our Impressions

on October 16, 2013 10:00 AM

That’s right. A whole uninterrupted hour with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the conclusion to the trilogy that started back in 2009. At a Square Enix demo event last week, our Senior Editor Al Zamora got his hands on the TGS build of the title — a first for members of the media — and put the game through it’s paces in the Wildlands, the same area that Game Design Director Yuji Abe gave us the rundown for last week.¬†Al was pleasantly surprised with his findings in the upcoming title, as it seems the series will close out with a bang.

Make sure you check out the full clip below as well as the interview with both Yuji Abe and that game’s producer Yoshinori Kitase that followed. Enjoy!
