[2014 edit: Please check out my new Lightning Returns fanvid and farewell to the trilogy. Finally, after 3 weeks of block/appeal/strike/counter notification, it has been restored. It’s an epic finale set to Thomas Bergersen’s “Merchant Prince”.]
Action tribute with cinematic cutscenes from Final Fantasy XIII-2 and the DLC Lightning’s Story: Requiem of the Goddess, edited to Two Steps From Hell’s “United We Stand, Divide We Fall”.
Lightning will return in 2013!
Before the warrior awakens from her crystal sleep, anticipate! I know I am. Looking forward to some answers, like will she ever reunite with Serah? Protecting her little sister is Claire Farron’s whole purpose right? But did FF13-2 cancel the validity of this “mission”? Even more importantly, will Fang and Vanille awaken from crystal stasis and return too? Questions questions…
Okay, actually, I don’t really understand Lightning’s storyline in FFXIII-2. It’s all epicly confusing, but utterly enthralling visually. When I heard the Two Steps from Hell track “United we stand, Divided we fall”, I just had to see what 1080 HD Lightning VS Caius Ballad (and of course the stunning Tears of the Goddess armor donning sequence) would look like slapped together with the epic Thomas Bergersen and Nick Phoenix battle theme, this fanvid’s the result of that doodling.
Also, this is sort of a tribute to Ali Hillis who voices Lightning, and Mass Effect’s Liara T’soni. Here’s to more gunblade action in FFXIII-3, or as they official named it Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, what a mouthful.
