Square Enix Releases Lightning Returns’ Five-Minute Opening Cinematic

The full five-minute introduction to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has been released, courtesy of Square Enix.

As you might expect, this opening cutscene is absolutely gorgeous, with vibrant fireworks, intense action, and wacky get-ups. Like it or not, the Final Fantasy XIII series isn't over just yet, and based off of what I got to play back at E3, that may not necessarily be a bad thing.

Be sure to check out the game's opening cinematic above and sound off in the comments below with your thoughts on how Lightning Returns is shaping up thus far. Will you be picking it up when it launches in February?
