Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII announced

Final Fantasy XIII's purple-haired heroine Lightning is set to see her story continue, as developers Square Enix have just announed the next chapter in the FFXIII saga, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Very few details are forthcoming at the moment, other than that the game will be heading to both PS3 and Xbox at some point in 2013. What is clear, however, is that Square are determined to keep exploring the setting of Final Fantasy XIII, which has in the past been somewhat contentious for fans of the long running RPG series.
