The newest developer diary covers a lot of ground for the third Final Fantasy XIII title, including Tetsuya Nomura's art, the environments, the music, and more.

You'll hear from all aspects of development from the artists and musicians to the designers. The team talks about long time Final Fantasy artist Tetsuya Nomura's work for the game, how the environments interlock with one another with monorails, and the focus for the game, which according to this video, "has been to make Lightning more beautiful and cooler looking than ever before."

To see the first episode of the Inside the Square series of videos covering the development of Lightning Returns, head here. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 11.
