Square Enix Dev Diary Goes Behind the Scenes of ‘Lightning Returns’

Square Enix — that’s eh-nicks, apparently, not ee-nicks, like I’ve been saying for the past 26 years — have taken to documenting the development of “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” for a three-part documentary called “Inside the Square.” Today, the first episode was released.

The first half of the video, narrated by Lightning voice actress Ali Hillis, gives the most basic, cursory glance at “Final Fantasy”: It’s been around for 25 years, and none of the games are really all that connected (the odd sequel or trilogy notwithstanding). Eventually, the doc moves more specifically to cover “Lightning Returns,” including interviews with concept artists and designers and heavily featuring producer Yoshinori Kitase.
