    Lightning.Returns.Final.Fantasy.XIII.PAL.XBOX360-COMPLEX
    Seemingly region locked PAL.
    NA release due out on the 11th of February. PAL release has a street date of the 14th so play it however you will.

    Final fantasy 13 was not terrible well liked and its sequel in XIII-2 was not an awful lot better. This game is apparently the game set to finish the storyline. Supposedly it is a revamped version of the engines used in the previous titles, you will certainly be forgiven for not taking them at their word though.

    Amazon words

    The world of Gran Pulse is sinking into the sea and what remains is now called Nova Chrysalia. With only thirteen days remaining until the end of the world, Chaos reigns in a world that never ages. New life cannot be born. People need salvation. As Lightning, it is your mission to save as many souls as possible so that they may be brought to the new world. Along the journey, you will encounter familiar faces and engage new foes in all new lands. You must ultimately choose which souls to save and which to abandon and fully understand Lightning's true destiny. It all ends here.

    Great game, already given it a few hours of my time! Really impressive. Quite a step up from 13-2, battle system is nice too. Seems to be a bit more in depth so far from the short while i've been playing.

    Actually, now I've given the game a bit more time my opinion of it has changed. Total dislike for the time limit. Given that this game gives you a chance quite early on for exploration, having a clock hanging over your head takes away from how FF should be. No longer can you wander around finding sidequests and stuff when your constantly being funneled into doing certain objectives within a given amount of time. I didnt like it Majoras Mask, hated it in Dead Rising and its certainly out of place here. :glare: Will they ever not keep trying to ruin Final Fantasy?
