Lighting Returns: FF13 trailer recaps trilogy with retro pixel art

How long has Square Enix been working on the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy? Four years? Ten? Twenty? Perhaps Squeenix isn't sure itself, as a new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII recapping the subseries' story is rocking pixel art like it's 1994; is this what the first two games looked like? Who can even remember anymore?

The recap will also come in handy for people who may not quite remember what happened in FF XIII and FF XIII-2. The particularly bold may even want to try skipping the first two entirely and digging straight into Lightning Returns.

Lighting Returns arrives February 11 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A demo is out now.
