This Retro Recap of the ‘FINAL FANTASY XIII’ Story Is the Best Entry In the Saga

FFXIIIRECAP

The disdain for Square-Enix’s first next-gen entry into the FINAL FANTASY franchise is fairly obvious, especially amongst die-hard FINAL FANTASY fans, which is why it has always baffled me that the company continues to keep pushing FINAL FANTASY XIII onto the public. First there was a sequel nobody wanted (which was actually pretty damn good, more than it had any right to be), then a tie-in to the stellar FINAL FANTASY XIV through in-game events. Square is trying hard to get the public to like Lightning as much as they do and their latest attempt is a third entry in the saga, Lightning Returns: FINAL FANTASY XIII, starring the aforementioned heroine and no one else.

With the release of Lightning Returns drawing near, Square-Enix has put out a video recapping the story so far in a retro style that harkens back to the series’ glory days on the Super Nintendo. Hit the jump to check it out.

I honestly can’t help but wonder if the games would be viewed a bit differently had they been made in this retro style. I certainly liked this video a whole lot and it actually made me a little hopeful; not so much for Lightning Returns, but for FINAL FANTASY as a brand if the developers are starting to realize what’s important to the fans.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Lightning Returns: FINAL FANTASY XIII redeems the Lightning story when it releases on February 11th, 2014.
