You can check out some screens from the role-playing game in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Motomu Toriyama below (courtesy of Videogaming247):
The main cast of Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 will of course appear again in Lightning Returns. In much the same way as Lightning herself, most of them feel responsibility for the world and they continue to live out their existences in the build-up to the apocalypse.
This is in no way limited to the returning main characters, but over the long days of anguish, the mental scars that they bear have come to cloud their hearts in a deep and impenetrable darkness. During the story Lightning will interact with her old comrades in many different ways in order to lift this darkness.
“Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” is the third and final game in the series that included the aforementioned “Final Fantasy XIII” and “Final Fantasy XIII-2.” The sequel is currently being develop by Square Enix 1st Production Department and will be published by Square Enix. It has an autumn release for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. You can pre-order the title in the following link: “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII”
