Evil must be vanquished.

Customization is the key to unlocking the full potential of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The player has countless options to cater their gameplay experience to their liking. When fighting enemies the player can move Lightning around the battlefield making room for both offensive and defensive strategies. You will also be able to change her battle stye in real time by simply pressing a button. Additionally, a new mechanic called the Overclock System, will slow the flow of time and allow for more chances to attack the enemy targets.

This might sound like a lot to take in, but I’m sure with a little practice you’ll be able to flip through different outfits, weapons, attacks, and battle styles with the greatest of ease. In fact you have all the time in the world to set the stage before the battle begins. During the video you’ll see the customization screen where you’ll choose which outfits you want Lightning to wear. Each outfit appears to have different abilities that can be mapped to your controller. This will be a nice feature for quickly changing up your attacks without having to go to the menu during combat.
