Square Enix has released a new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, and this one doesn't waste any time with exposition. Instead, it shows off the game's combat in loads of quick-fire hits.

Players will take on enemies in real-time battles, where Lightning has to effectively evade incoming attacks before punishing foes with her own. Players will be able to customize her with loads of gear, which will help her shatter through enemy defenses. Some opponents have special requirements that, when met in battle, will stagger them temporarily and leave them open for a deadly response from the player. 

You can see how it works and more in the clip below.

The game is coming out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11, including a special $89.99 collector's edition. To see what you get in that package, check out the unboxing.
