was a divisive game that came out a few years ago. It was followed by Final Fantasy XIII-2, a proper sequel that seems to be remembered as better, but with a story that makes no sense.
Now, Final Fantasy XIII
is being revisited with a new expansion called Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
. The story will star Final Fantasy XIII
's emotional fulcrum, Lightning; and it will feature a new world, characters, and gameplay.
Right now, not much else is known about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
, other than it will be out next year for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
