Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII debut trailer and first screenshots released

Square Enix has officially debuted the trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII at Jump Festa today. It is an extended version of the leaked one we posted a couple of days ago (which is now down). Not only that, but they also released a few screenshots for the game as well as some details about the game. Apparently the role system has been removed completely in this installment, so you are allowed to mix and match abilities and use them any way you see fit.

I imagine that’s the only way a solo game like this could really work, so I’m glad they did away with the role system. As a fan of Final Fantasy XIII and/or Final Fantasy XIII-2, are you happy or upset with how this looks and as someone who has never played either installment, do you plan on giving this one a chance?

Anyway! Enough talk. Go check out the trailer below, as well as the screenshots, and see what you think about it.
