Square Enix has released a new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy which features an old, friendly face from the original game.
Yes, that's right, Oerba Yun Fang will be returning in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and we get to see her in this new trailer. Also featured as returning characters are Snow Villers, Hope Estheim and Noel Kreiss. We also get to see Lumina, who's a new character that has a very strong resemblance to Serah, Lightning's sister.
The trailer, which has been called "The Divine Task", was released for Japan Expo 2013 and has Lightning narrating about her current situation. It sets a pretty good back story for the game, and it looks as though Hope will be helping out where possible yet again.
It's great to see that Fang will be returning, and it'll be interesting to see if any other characters will come back. The most obvious would be Vanille, Fang's partner in crime from the original Final Fantasy XIII game.
You can check out the full Japan Expo 2013 trailer below. It's just under 2 minutes long, so it won't take up too much of your time. It's more than worth it though.
In other news, Square Enix announced yesterday that if you pre-order Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, for a limited time only you'll be able to get a costume which will dress Lightning up in Cloud Strife's famous attire - Buster Sword included. Not only that, but wearing the costume will see Lightning level up faster in-game. That's some serious fan service.
