Developers create a brand new Lightning Returns trailer
To celebrate the Japanese release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the game’s developers have decided to create their own trailer using only the in-game engine and assets.
The official press release says the following to say on the developer made trailer called, Lightning Special Project, “The game’s developers used the in-game engine and assets to construct a brand new sequence that gives a taste of the game’s story, themes, gameplay and characters.”
It is kind of cool to see developers celebrate the release of a game by sitting down and making a machinima to celebrate it launch and to give players an insight into the story, gameplay and characters.
While Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is now out in Japan, the game will not be out in Europe and North America until next year, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The EU and NA release dates are, February 14, 2014 (EU) and February 11, 2014 (NA).
