Along with the new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix announced today details on when we’ll be able to get our hands on the final installment of the Final Fantasy XIII story. The game will be available in North America on February 11, 2014, for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The new game focuses on Lightning as the main and only playable character – a departure for the normal party focus of most Final Fantasy games. Lightning is able to change costumes that affect her abilities, much like the paradigm shifts introduced in the first Final Fantasy XIII. In addition, Square Enix is introducing a new game countdown timer that will see Lightning fighting against time over the course of her adventure.
