Lightning's latest adventure starts out with a bang and the clanging of swords in this video featuring the opening cutscene from Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13.

The end of the world is less than two weeks away at the start of the game, and Lightning is tasked with guiding the souls of the people to salvation as The Savior. Not all people are willing to go quietly though, as she quickly finds out when she goes up against her former ally, Snow.

As they duel and break every law of physics known to man, creatures from the encroaching chaos join in the fray and only serve as fodder for these incredible badasses. Then, just to mix things up, Lumina appears to bring a little more chaos to the proceedings before vanishing.

Watch the trailer above and check out Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 when it drops on Feb. 11, 2014 in North America.
