Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Screenshots Race Against The Clock

Final Fantasy fans are getting downright spoiled this week. Days after releasing the first trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix has sent out a flood of fresh screenshots.

The city in the screenshots is called Luxerion. The city is deeply religious and doesn't take kindly to strangers who don't share their beliefs. That certainly includes Lightning, who's been sleeping for a few hundred years.

Nonetheless, the inhabitants of Luxerion need Lightning's help. The world will end in thirteen days and only she can prevent that from happening. She'll spend those few days dashing around Luxerion - and the rest of the Novus Partus islands - in a desperate attempt to stop the apocalypse. You might notice a few clocks in the screenshots; the game world is lousy with them, in order to keep the player informed of the passage of time.

Lightning Returns will arrive next year on the PS3 and Xbox 360. If you haven't watched the trailer yet, you really ought to.
