Earlier today, Square Enix Japan uploaded a new Lightning Returns development documentary video which was showing a video footage from the studio of developer team. Luckily, we were lucky enough to spot a new alpha gameplay clip from the video footage which was uploaded to Youtube. (See video below) This new clip was showing the new clock system, a big map and two new characters with Lightning who seemed to be holding a new sword on her back.

Note: This just is an alpha gameplay clip, so the area, characters and their  designs aren’t final.

  1. Yeah, that’s a magic visual effect. It looks like they’re testing the frames/animation on it, it’s unlikely it has anything to do with the Styles system. I’m curious to see how graphic-heavy the Styles customization menu will be, though.

    1. I don’t know it looks like it could just be equipping another shield. The style system in action would have to be seen in a battle.

      1. The style system doesn’t have to be seen in a battle as the customization affects battle. The customization allows the player to create a well-balanced or an all-powerful Lightning. So you can set up several outfits of various equipment, which can create different skills for battle.

  2. what was that video at 0:18? remind me of “James and the Giant Peach” Oo xDDD
    no seriously maybe they are using that video for inspiration.

  3. I can see why they’re neglecting to show us any gameplay footage since it’s still in the Alpha phase but I hope they at least show us her new design soon! And btw I think the sword on her back might be her XIII-2 one.

  4. im guessing the gauge at the bottom will increase when you win back time during battles or quests – and when it fills itll either add a day or a few hours to the clock just slightly above it or itll act like an hourglass for that day in game – itll decrease and increase all the time – interested to see more :)

    1. I’m pretty sure the gauge at the bottom is the ATB gauge. Although you can set up skills per buttons, it was never mention that you could use them freely. I have the theory that the battle system will be an upgraded version of FFXIII’s Original battle system, which was heavily modified to produce what we saw in the final game.

      1. ah yeah that is a good suggestion but that would mean itll be on show all the time as from the screenshot she isnt in battle – but then again they might just have it up for test runs with various things so you never know :)
