Lightning Returns opening shows up on YouTube.
Though Square Enix has been seen as losing quite a bit over the years, one thing that they seemingly haven’t lost is the ability to make great game openings, as revealed by the opening of Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns which made it’s way to YouTube today.
Though the trailer isn’t in English, it seems fairly obvious what’s going on. Lightning appears (with lightning flashing behind her) with the apparent intent of fighting (who appears to be) Snow, dispatching several guards before a gate opens up and monsters come out.
The two begin fighting each other, casually dispatching the monsters that appear, but their fight is cut short by another stranger.
Just what does this mean? Why is Lightning attacking Snow (if it is indeed Snow)?
