Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy Intro Showcases Lightning’s Return


Surprise! Lightning Re[SPOILERS!]

We know how much everyone hates spoilers, so we’re not going to say anything that would give away what happens in the opening cutscene to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It’s the first five minutes of the game, so watching it early probably wouldn’t ruin the experience, but that’s not our call to make.

Once you click that play button, though, you’re on your own.

In order to avoid using language that might inadvertently give you an idea of what happens, we’re going to describe it the same exact way that Square Enix has on Youtube:

“Join Lightning as she returns from her long slumber to face new and thrilling dangers in the face of the apocalypse. Old friends and unfamiliar enemies emerge from the darkness to challenge her, and prevent her from fulfilling her role as “savior.”

Sounds confusing? Of course it does. This is the third part of a Final Fantasy trilogy. It’ll make more sense if you watch the video, though… Probably.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes to Xbox 360 and PS3 February 11.
