The first trailer for the third Final Fantasy XIII game, Lightning Returns, was released by Square Enix today. Here’s your first look at the setting, Lightning’s new costume design, and gameplay in action. The trailer confirms that this is final entry for Lightning’s story.

The battle system has been tweaked for a more active combat style and simpler menus that can be controlled by using the D-pad or face buttons to select specific attacks. The story takes place in a town dominated by a strict religion. There is a 13 day countdown until the end of the world that is featured as a time limit element players will face in the game.
