New trailer recaps 1st 2 games to prepare for 3rd game shipping on February 11

Square Enix began streaming a Final Fantasy XIII "Retro-spective" trailer on Wednesday that gives a story recap of the Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2 games using 16-bit graphics.

The trailer prepares viewers for the final game in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Square Enix shipped the game in Japan in November. The company will release the game in North America on February 11, and then in Europe on February 14.

The Collector's Edition will include a collector's box featuring the Japanese cover art for the game. It will also include an 80-page hardcover art book with a dust jacket featuring Tetsuya Nomura's original drawings, a foreward by art director Isamu Kamikokuryo, a retrospective, character sketches, Lightning's full range of customization, information on the world of Nova Chrysalia and its architecture, and information on the world's monsters. Additionally, the edition will include a silver-embossed pocket watch.

Players who pre-order the game in North America and Europe will be able to unlock Cloud's uniform and buster sword as equipment for Lightning. Lightning is also getting a Yuna costume from Final Fantasy X and various samurai costumes, as well as a Miqo'te costume from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn with shields with motifs from the game's three city-states: Limsa Lominsa, Gridania, and Ul'dah.

The game will represent the final chapter in Lightning's story. The game centers around a 13-day countdown until the end of the world, and players must save humanity within 13 days and 13 nights.
