PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
Based on the Product of the Week that we highlight every Monday on our homepage, allow us to briefly introduce to you why Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII from Square Enix deserves the spotlight!
As an added incentive, within the first two weeks of release, Square Enix will have the Japanese Voice Packs as a free DLC!
“I'm more powerful than I ever was, but it came with a price. I'm not even sure if I'm human anymore.” —Lightning
Awakening from her slumber and charged with being humanity's champion, Lightning will face her greatest challenge yet, and the epic drama that unfolds will dictate the fate of all.
In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, embark on the final journey of one of Square Enix's most celebrated heroines. This entry in the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" subseries brings closure to the travails of Lightning; it is a fitting send off to have many staple Final Fantasy gameplay mechanics change as this venerable series prepares itself for future releases.
Core gameplay changes include the first ever time limitation; the world of Nova Chrysalia and the 13 days are set to a 24 hour clock ensuring a new experience per playthough wherein certain NPCs and missions can only be activated if Lightning is at the right place at the right time.
As well, gone are the static battles which are replaced by actual action RPG gameplay - all enemies can be seen in the gameworld removing random battle encounters in favor for an arena-esque Lightning versus all mode; ATB is still active with a focus on strategic decisions such as attacking, dodging, and even countering in realtime.
During battle, Lightning can also change costumes on the fly. These costumes are not merely superficial, as each outfit contains special power loadouts and each costume can be customized.
Graphically and aurally, this game on current gen pushes each respective system to it's limit break. Square Enix developers have promised that this title is the most polished Final Fantasy title as of yet, and with what we've seen and heard so far, we believe so too!
