Kitase Compares Lightning Returns To Dark Souls

Written by Darryl — 23 Jun 2013

Good news folks, Square Enix are back to talking about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII again and this time they're talking about the gameplay in a bit more depth.

As part of this, when asked to describe the gameplay by Famitsu Magazine, Yoshinori Kitase stated that he felt it had similarities with Dark Souls.

The direct quote from the interview is "If I were to describe the gameplay, I'd say that there are some elements with the severity of [something like] Dark Souls."

What do you guys think about this quote. Are you happy that Square Enix are making this kind of comparison, or would you rather the Lightning Returns had a more traditional gameplay style?

Darryl was playing Final Fantasy before he was even born - quite a feat! Often very opinionated on the Final Fantasy franchise, you will often find him musing about small details. Feel free to follow him on Twitter.
