Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 E3 gameplay demo showcases flappy coat

You'll get trenched out there.

An E3 2013 gameplay demo video of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 has flashed up on YouTube.

It shows our coincidentally attractive heroine acrobatically slicing through monsters and navigating her way through a level, all the while accompanied by some grating synthesised music from yesteryear.

There's no HUD on display so it's not clear exactly what's going on during battles. Based on the evidence in this video, fighting is an action-packed affair.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13, the closing chapter of the FF13 trilogy that I'm not sure anyone really wanted, will be released in Europe on Valentine's Day 2014 (14th February).
