The official release date for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 was announced by Square Enix this morning. To accompany the announcement, a new trailer for the game was released. The trailer shows off some of the new combat system within the game, as well as the new city in which it takes place, Yusnaan. You can slightly get the gist of what the game will be about, and it appears it is another game to prevent the end of the world. You get a glimpse of some familiar faces from the previous two games in the trilogy, but not all of them. The song from the trailer is called “The Savior” and you can purchase it from the iTunes Store.

Also released is the official box art for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of the title!
