Square Enix has unveiled the next trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The game will conclude Lightning's trilogy as she has thirteen days to save the world. However, old friends and new enemies stand in her way.

The trailer sees the return of Snow Villers with an entire new wardrobe, who is still searching for Lightning's sister Serah, and Lightning later duels him for reasons unknown. Noel Kreiss also makes a return as an antagonist to Lightning, due to being manipulated by the chaos that came from Valhalla's release. Hope Estheim does not make a direct appearance but will be guiding Lightning via wireless com-link. A new character, Lumina, resembles Serah and it is currently unknown if she is friend or foe.

The trailer also shows a new city called Yusnaan, with a giant cactuar effigy in the town, as well as the Dead Dunes and a few other yet to be named areas.

While the game was previously announced for a 2013 release date, the trailer sets February 11th and February 14th, 2014 as the release date for the game in North America and Europe respectively. Japan will be receiving the game on November 21st, 2013.

There is currently no word of a special collector's edition for North America and Europe, but Japan will be receiving the LR:FFXIII Ultimate Box. The special edition packages includes all three of the FFXIII games, selections from each game's soundtrack, a Play Arts Lightning figurine based on her new look in Returns, and an art book. The whole collection is priced at ¥26,000 - around $262.

Seems to have something to do with that prophecy I guess. It sounds like it was foretold that 1 saviour would arrive to destroy the world. I guess Noel thinks that lightning is that saviour from the prophecy ::)

I'm already addicted to the trailer theme... SE has attracted me to this game once again. The Dressphere-like system seems interesting.

It's obvious Lighting stole a cake that belonged to him ::)

I can't wait to watch an LP of this!

You might not know this, but Mytthal has a soft spot for cake. He likes to lurk around West and steal Apple Pie from the Cooking Guild.

February gives me some breathing room.  (I'd also suspect some type of Valentine's Day joke as well)

That rule can be stupid sometimes, it really depends on the situation I think. xD
