Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Special Effects Trailer and more


Square-Enix has recently released a new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII that basically shows off the graphical pizazz of the upcoming title and it shows them off pretty well. Judging from what I’ve seen from the trailer it’s still amazing from what can be squeezed from consoles that are 8 years old.

Also while we have you here, you’ll be pleased to know that Square-Enix has finally chosen the actors for the Japanese voice-Overs in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which is a first time for this series and will be adding those voice-overs as free DLC. 

SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, announced today that LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY® XIII will feature the original Japanese Voice-Overs available as free downloadable content (DLC) during the first two weeks of the game being on-sale. After this limited period, the Japanese Voice-Over Pack will be available as paid DLC.

The Japanese Voice-Over Pack also includes lip-synching that differs from the English-language voice track already included with the game, to ensure a more natural and localized game experience.

LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII will be available for the Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3 systems and for digital download on the PlayStation®Network for $59.99 on February 11, 2014. LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII is rated T (Teen).
