A sequel to Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 the titular Lightning makes another appearance 13 days before the end of the world to save her friends and rescue a dying planet.
Lightning Returns hits retail in February and will revolve around the Fabula Nova Crystallis storyline as well as bringing the story of XIII to a close.
Battles are more action-oriented while players can change characters’ clothes throughout the game. A time limit is also in place which players have to extend by completing missions.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
Missed out on Spira’s story when it first appeared on the PlayStation 2? Final Fantasy X was one of the finest entries in the series, even if Tidus wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea…
X and its sequel, X-2 , are popping up on the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita with a brand new lick of paint ready to capture the imaginations of a new audience.
New features include trophy additions, improved maps and character models, improved voice audio, a “new episode” for the characters, and more.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
The second Final Fantasy MMO may not have had the easiest of launches when released in 2010, but there should be no such troubles with ‘Version 2.0’, with the game being totally overhauled and set to appear on the PlayStation 4.
Already available on PlayStation 3 the PS4 version is compatible with the PS Vita. You also won’t need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play, while the game looks better than ever on Sony’s new console.
Final Fantasy XV
God, we hope this comes out this year. The fifteenth Final Fantasy was shown off at E3 2013 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and looks every bit the next-generation RPG experience it should be.
Final Fantasy XV looks incredibly dark and features enormous environments, making us pine for the days when we could go anywhere we wanted in an airship.
The battle system is also rumoured to be fully customisable letting players choose how they want to fight. The story also carries on from the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology which debuted in Final Fantasy XIII.
