Square Enix has announced Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13, the third and final chapter in the FF13 Lightning Saga, due for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year.
Final Fantasy 13's pink-haired heroine Lightning will be the main character, after taking a back seat in this year's Final Fantasy 13-2.
Set 300 years later, Lightning awakes to find the world greatly changed, and humanity just thirteen days days from destruction.
The story will centre on the Doomsday Clock, a device that measures the short time humanity has left. The clock will count down to the game's finale (although it is unclear if, as in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, the game will have some form of real-time mechanic).
Extra time can be added as the game progresses, while Lightning will also be able to perform time-based battle moves that drain the clock.
Lightning Return's battle system has also been spruced up. Fighting mechanics will be a hybrid of previous games, with some real-time elements. You'll also be able to customise your characters more, with looks and combat styles reflected in battle.
