I Want to Play this Version of Final Fantasy XIII

final fantasy xiii 16 bit

Square Enix has published a retrospective trailer to help get fans caught up with the current events within Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Instead of doing a boring old video with footage from the previous games, they did it in 16-bit style, like from Final Fantasy VI.

You can view the retrospective below:

Despite this new coat of paint via “de-making” the game, it still doesn’t solve the issues fans have been describing with the series, namely the throwaway plot, the lack of features from previous games within the franchise, and the forgettable characters.

Still, look at those beautiful pixels! Oh Square, why do you play with my heart?

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is coming to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11th.
