Lightning Returns – Square Reveal Beautiful Location and Special Abilities



Lightning Returns is almost certainly going to shake things up a little when it releases later this year. Although key features from previous Final Fantasy XIII games will be making a return, the game’s emphasis on time is present even in Lightning’s abilities. Square Enix have today released a set of screen shots showing off some of her new abilities. Lightning will be able to not only heal herself, but to slow down time around her. This will make bigger enemies far easier to dodge and easier to recover from as well.

They also released a first look at The Dead Dunes, a new desert location that hides a treasure which Lightning must find. Along the way, she’ll come across the shanty towns founded by other treasure hunters. Just be careful not to let time get away with you – the desert can no doubt be a dangerous place and this is a game all about the passage of time.
