A new trailer has appeared for Square-Enix’s forthcoming third entry into the ‘Lightning Saga’, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. In truth, it’s mostly made up of footage from previous trailers, though it does reveal that a certain time-travelling hunter is, for some reason, battling against Lightning in this new world of Novus Partus.

That hunter is of course Noel from Final Fantasy XIII-2, but quite why he’s fighting our pink-haired heroine is a mystery, though he seems to think Lightning is some kind of imposter. I suppose it will all become clear (provided it’s not massively convoluted) when we learn more about the game.

The trailer also reveals that Lightning Returns is due to launch this autumn, so there’s plenty of time for things to fall into place.
