The “new direction” Square Enix is taking the story of Lightning is … actually kind of the same direction as before. As in, it’s another sequel to Final Fantasy XIII. “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” was unveiled at tonight’s Final Fantasy 25th anniversary event at PAX.
According to the game’s Japanese website, Motomu Toriyama is heading up the third game in the Final Fantasy XIII series (yes, we seriously just wrote that) ? a game that’s said to end Lightning’s story. A video was shown during tonight’s event that we’re expecting to see pop up any time now, but we’ve got a concept art gallery below for you to check out in the meantime.
