Here's 11 straight minutes of Lightning Returns gameplay

A new video shows over ten minutes of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 being played.

The footage is all of the Japanese version, so viewers who don't speak or read Japanese will be left to fill in plot and cutscene details with their imaginations. However, much of the video is comprised of combat as Lightning explores an open field and wanders through city streets, and hitting dragons with swords is a universal language.

Lightning Returns hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this February in the West.
