Square-Enix has finally officially released 2 trailers as well as additional new screenshots on Friday for the upcoming 3rd game to the Final Fantasy XIII series, Lighting Returns. The trailer was prematurely released by various media outlets earlier this week.
Observant fans will can't help but notice the cityscape of Luxerion, the apparently new platforming elements, and Lightning's new red and white cloak are relatively reminiscent of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed.
Some of the background buildings and details of Luxerion as a whole appears to be lacking in depth and looks relatively dated compared to more recent video game titles. As to what purpose the platforming will actually serve in the game aren't entirely made clear in the trailer, we'll just have to find out when Square-Enix releases more information.
