With a ticking clock counting down the end of the world, and the return of a hero from the distant past–will hair care still be extreme in “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII?” Clearly, yes, as evidenced from the opening cinematic for the end of the “Final Fantasy XIII” saga, which reintroduces heroine Lightning as well as a cast of well-coiffed new characters.
Set over the span of 13 days, “Lightning Returns” brings back Lightning (as the title so clearly indicates) to help avert the impending doom set to strike Nova Chrysalia 500 years after the events of “Final Fantasy XIII.” Square Enix is mixing things up a bit, making this entry something of an open world game on a ticking clock, forcing Lightning to solve the mystery of the upcoming apocalypse while also pursuing numerous side quests.
“Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on February 11th.
