Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Latest Trailer Gets Live Action Treatment

Written by Lauren — 18 Nov 2013

Square Enix has gone back to its roots with the latest Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trailer by having a live actor stand-in for Lightning.

The trailer is quite short but impressively shows the actress jumping in and out of various costumes as worn by Lightning in the game. It's incredible how much the actress looks like Lightning and I'll bet many cosplayers are envious that she got such an opportunity to wear so many of Lightning's costumes.

However, live action trailers aren't a new thing for the developer. Terra from Final Fantasy VI received a live action treatment back in the day. Perhaps Square Enix will produce more trailers like this in the future. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is out Thursday, 21st November, in Japan and 11th February 2013 in NA and 14th February in Europe. Also if you're an adventurer on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, be sure to take part in the Lightning FATE which is running from now until December. You can check out the live action trailer below:
