This Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 trailer is all about shopping

A new trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 shows the kind of items that can be purchased in the game's stores and what the player can do with them.

Shops will sell items both useful and cosmetic; this particular trailer has the player purchasing a new shield for lightning as well as a pair of glasses that can be worn with any of her equipment.

The trailer then delves into the menus, showing different equipment setups and how to customize Lightning's color palette to the player's preference. This particular video ends up with an outfit marked with purple highlights, but the end of the trailer shows a number of other color schemes the player could have used.

Lightning Returns is scheduled to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2014.
