Here’s another version of that debut Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trailer from Square Enix.

The original extended trailer came out in December. This one’s yet another version, with a few extra seconds of footage sewn in. It is different, but not a lot.

An actual new trailer would have been great, Squeenix. 

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is out later this year.

I really enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII & XIII-2, it would be nice if they worked on a new Final Fantasy.

Maybe they'll finally work on Versus XIII after releasing Lightning Returns.
...But probably not.

@#2 agreed or maybe something completely different, i did like the graphics and style of FF IX but the greatest game of the lot was FF VII

@3 I disagree. I'd put IX at the top and VII somewhere in the middle.

Personally I hated XIII-2 I thought that XIII ended perfectly. Probably wont bother with a 3rd.

@#5 fair point, everyone has their top choice of game.

Question for all: Who was the hardest boss to beat on all FF games?

@7: It depends on what kind of difficulty we're talking about. In sheer battle length and luck, probably Yiazmat from XII. In difficulty? Probably Gilgamesh in XIII-2.

Omega Weapon FF VIII
Ozma FF IX

But i agree @#8 XIII-2 Gilgamesh is damn difficult (completed it of course!) but very long battle

I guess I'll get this since I like RPG games but I'd rather have another Final Fantasy game or Kingdom Hearts. Hopefully you have more control over the combat than in previous titles.

pointless. 'nuff said.

just release other good stuff and stop shoving this character back to the spotlight again.

I'd like to see Sora and others do more fun things.

I've played every final fantasy, and i must say, just like 13-2, i'll be waiting for this one to drop down to $20 or so. I love the series, but after 13 i just can't see paying full retail for a game that has gone so far downhill. Bring back stories like 6 please =D.

Penance in FFX International was the hardest I've fought. Also my favorite game in the series, followed by VII and VI.

I really don't know how to feel about this game. I liked XIII aside from the convoluted naming (why did Fal Cie, L'Cie, Cieth, et al have to have such similar, confusing names?) and the mass killing of turtles.

Then XIII-2 came along and the ending I worked so hard to get (and save the world twice) made both games seem like a waste of time.

I'll probably play this by ear and get it used or when the price drops.

I still haven't completed FFXIII, and I haven't even brought FFXIII-2...
I'm getting really behind.

@15 I was never able to get past Dark Bahamut in Final Fanatsy X

Wait for this to come down in price. Some of the other reports have read on this make it sound like it dosen't even play like a FF Game, more like Pandoras Tower on the Wii.

I like FFXIII. Didn't buy XIII-2 even though it's only £8 in my local supermarket. Best FF for me was X hands down. Nothing beats the first one you played.

@20, i bought it during the summer from for only 5 quid, and that was fully sealed and came with a few extra codes... dont remember what they were for of course lol.

I liked both FFXIII, wanna continue the story and see what happens in FFXIII-3

but like a few ppl are doing these days with all games, i have started to wait until they come down in price, done same with fry cry and black ops 2, they have since went up in price again.

I used to loved and liked Final Fantasy series but Square Enix is ruined Final Fantasy XIII series. Shame about it but maybe they improves and bring back some memorable gameplay from other FF series onto Lighting Returns but who knows?

My favourite FF series were FFVII, FF X, FF XII and FF Crystal Chronicles

I agreed with load of people here and all over websites on each in that want Kingdom Hearts 3 so much so do myself want to see it returns, preorder, buy and PLAY IT!!! Just FFS bring it already, will you? Square Enix >> Please??? Lol

It's been age since Kingdom Hearts 2 in 2006!!! Near 6 years awaits for no answer from Square Enix. Just stop release it too much Kingdom Hearts on handhelds and just bring Kingdom Hearts 3 or Kingdom Hearts HD Collection either or both. :(:(

Square Enix need to give consoles some Kingdom Hearts loves. :(:(

maybe they will actually make a fucking decent final fantasy instead of milking the worst game they have ever made, i know why they are milking 13 though, they are completely bereft of any creative ideas to make new fun games, ff13 proved that with its gorgeous looking corridor game. instead of making a new amazing game they've stuck with a template and made similar games in the same universe instead of a whole new world and story like back in the good old days! anybody see the ff14 online reviews? fucking dog shit game, squeenix just simply do not know how to make amazing games anymore.....FACT

Still haven't really changed my opinion about this. I'll just wait for a price drop, just like i did with the other 2.

I actually enjoyed XIII-2 more than XIII, but I'd have to agree that I would much rather see Kingdom Hearts 3 or at least Kingdom Hearts HD or even FFX HD
