Lightning Returns to Final Fantasy XIII

Square Enix released a trailer today to show off the return of Lightning. Lightning is the main protagonist in the game and, for those coming in late to the gun-sword party, a brief description from her Wikipedia page reads as follows:

“Lightning (ライトニング Raitoningu?) is the key protagonist of Final Fantasy XIII and its sequels,  a supporting character of XIII-2 and the sole playable character of Lightning Returns. Born as Claire Farron, or Éclair Farron (エクレール・ファロン Ekurēru Faron?) in the original Japanese-language version, she loses her parents when she is 15 years old. Claire takes on her codename of Lightning to become a stronger person to help her younger sister Serah, only to cause tensions between them as a result. In the first game, she is a former Sanctum soldier who sets out to save her sister from the fal’Cie, then strives to save Cocoon from destruction. At the beginning of XIII-2, she is whisked away to Valhalla, capital of the Unseen World, to act as the Goddess Etro’s protector, sending messages to her allies and guiding Serah through time to put things right. In Lightning Returns, Lightning ends up serving the god Bhunivelze as the Savior for the inhabitants of Nova Chrysalia during its final days, fighting old friends and enemies alike to save them.”
