61w ago - Square-Enix Associate Director of Product Marketing Amritz Lay posted up a behind-the-scenes video today showcasing Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (Part 1) below.

To quote: In 25 years, [Register or Login to view links] and the Final Fantasy development team have never had a behind-the-scenes look at how the franchise is created. Until now.

We're excited to unveil a brand new series titled "Inside the Square," which takes an in-depth look at one of the greatest RPG franchises around.

Earlier this year, we ventured out to Tokyo with an Emmy award winning camera crew to spend time with Yoshinori Kitase, Motomu Toriyama, and the entire Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII development team.

We quickly realized that each member of this incredibly talented group has a lot to say. Furthermore, the Final Fantasy franchise has such a rich history and so many moving parts, we couldn't properly showcase how these games are made in one video – so you get to witness the first of a three part series.

67w ago - Square Enix Head of Community Phil Elliott shared a new trailer and gameplay details today for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII fans below.

To quote: Time for a juicy bunch of new details for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, this time focusing on the battle system, plus a new location and costume too.

First up, some screens from Yusnaan, the city of revelry, focusing in on one area in particular - The Slaughterhouse.

I'm pretty sure you can figure out who's going to end up getting involved in all that, eh?

Also, time to lift the lid on a nice little sync-up with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII by way of some more costume links - this one allowing you to don the garb of the famous Miqo'te character from the forthcoming PS3 and PS4 MMO, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. You'll be able to equip the Lominsan Cutlass and Escutcheon to give you some awesome rapid attacks and leave enemies dead in your wake.

And last, but by no means least, a bit more detail on the game's battle system. In some battles, you can destroy sections of a foe, and if you succeed in disabling a specific area then the enemy will not...

73w ago - Square-Enix Senior Product Manager Amritz Lay announced today that Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII hits PS3 on February 11, 2014 with a new PS3 trailer video below!

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.
