SE taunts overseas fans with LRFFXIII's special effects



Many people already have their mitts on the Japanese version of Lightning Returns, and all we who await the NA or EU versions can do is watch trailers and game streams while we salivate. Square Enix released a special effects trailer a few days ago showing off the game's visuals, Lightning's costumes, and teasing all the characters we will see return to the narrative in this last installment. I'm particularly interested in that intense, angry Fang. Do yourself a favor and punch up the video to HD.

Though dress-up doesn't particularly add or reduce the game's appeal for me, I'm still impressed by how many options we're getting this time around. In case you missed it, here's another look at the customization options.

Lightning Returns is coming out in North America February 11th, and Europe will see their release on the 14th. Both of them are just in time for Valentine's, and I know who my date is going to be.
