To quote: Have you been counting down the minutes until Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII? If so, you're definitely in luck as we have a slew of updates for you.
If you've been asleep since last September when we unveiled the game, here's the gist of it: The world of Gran Pulse is sinking into the sea and what remains is Nova Chrysalia.
With only thirteen days remaining until the end of the world, you have full control of Lightning and it is your mission to save as many souls as possible.
Along the journey, you will encounter familiar faces and engage new foes in all new lands. Now that you're caught up, you're ready to watch the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trailer - right here!
A couple things to note: First is the return of Snow Villiers, with a completely new look. He's got new hair, and equal if not more abundant amounts of swagger.
Why are Snow and Lightning at odds now? What has transpired over the time between these two former allies? Sorry, but you'll just have to wait a bit to find out these secrets.

79w ago - Sony Brazil Manager Fabio Santana has posted up a Q&A interview today covering Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PlayStation 3, which aims to prove the time traveling sequel even surpasses the original game!
To quote: This week, Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PS3 is hitting stores across Japan with critical praise, garnering perfect scores from respected gaming magazines Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation.
Granted, the original FFXIII is the best-selling PS3 title in Japan by a wide margin, but this direct sequel isn't resting on the laurels of its predecessor. For starters, it will offer a dynamic narrative, addressing one of the main complaints about FFXIII - linearity.
The new game also has a darker and more serious tone, in line with the conclusion of the previous game, putting the glitter and glam of FFX-2.
When FFXIII-2 reaches US stores on January 31st, making it the fastest localization cycle among numbered episodes of the franchise - it will also deliver an improved combat system, an area full of mini games, branched dialogue trees with NPCs, and even multiple endings based on your time-traveling journey.
