Square Enix seems to be under the impression that people love Lightning, the main character of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. In fact, according to FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama, Lightning is so beloved that she might start getting Square Enix Cameo Treatment.
I’ve never been less emotionally invested in a character than I am in Final Fantasy XIII‘s pink-haired powerhouse, so when Square Enix tells me Lightning Returns, my response is “That’s great. What else you got?”
This might be the coolest thing Square has done in a decade — instead of just making a boring ol’ story recap video for Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2, they made one in the style of Final Fantasy VI for Super Nintendo.
