Today Square Enix has released a few more details and a handful of screenshots for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The game will feature a new area which is being called “The Dead Dunes” and Lightning will have two new abilities this time around.
The first ability is called “Lightspeed” which will consume EP (energy points) which, when used in battle, will slow down time, freezing opponents in their tracks while Lightning launches a blistering assault. The second ability is simply called “Recovery” which is as it sounds like. The spells consume EP but allow Lightning to cast various recovery spells on herself.
