Opening Cinematic Begins The End Of The World

The conclusion of the Final Fantasy XIII saga is still months away, but Square Enix is showing off the opening cinematic right now. Lightning has returned to a world on the brink of destruction and it's her job as the savior to set it right… or at least help the doomed find peace.

The video shows the reunion of Lightning and Snow. During the confrontation, Lumina (who looks strangely like Lightning's sister Serah) appears to wreak havoc. We'll find out where the story goes from here on February 11, 2014 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

  • Can someone please explain to me what it is snow is fighting for and why he wont just die already???? i am greatly confused

  • I like the concept (and Snow is awesome) but what the heck is with the voices? They sound clear, but way clear, like they came right out of voice production. I don't think voices should be louder than the music. And that was a bit rushed, no? They pushed the whole scene forward. I hope we get a little gameplay to flesh things out.
  • so excited.

  • I don't get it, why is everyone so against getting their souls saved? Apparently they know lightning is the "savior" so why is everyone trying to kill her....


  • If only unnatural colored hair looked as good in real life, bah I would still have no chance anyway.

  • That was awesome.

  • ...well that was a gorgeous video hahaha
