A new story trailer has appeared for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XII, revealing a bit more of the story, as well as returning FFXIII party member Oerba Yun Fang. Like Snow, she seems to be in a position of some authority in this new world.

The trailer sheds further light on the narrative behind Lightning’s final adventure: she’s apparently been chosen by God to rescue as many people as she can, leading them from this world to the next. Our protagonist is the most powerful she’s ever been, yet she notes her new abilities have come with a price; is she even human any longer? I guess we’ll find out.

This brings the returning character roster up to five, with Fang joining Hope, Snow, Noel and of course Lightning herself. I have to admit to having a bit of a soft spot for Lightning so I’m really looking forward to this, even if the character roster and time-travelling story seems to be becoming more and more convoluted. There have been some positive impressions of the game coming out of E3, mainly focused on the battle system, and I’m looking forward to jumping in and exploring Nova Chrysalia next February.
