Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII retro-spective trailer is heavy on the retro

ffxiii-retroWhile we’re excited to see what Square Enix has cooked up in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the amusing little 16-bit style “retro-spective” trailer they released today makes us wish such a version was actually in development.

Just check it out.

The scope of FINAL FANTASY XIII’s mythology is so massive it could only be fully told across three games, and the saga will finally reach its conclusion on February 11, 2014. Join us as we look back on the stories of FINAL FANTASY XIII and FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 that shaped Lightning into the heroine she is today, as she and a band of unlikely heroes came together to save the world.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is scheduled for a February 11th release.
