The first gameplay trailer for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 has been released, giving fans a first glimpse at what the game will be like to play.

The trailer appeared on GameTrailers overnight, but was quickly pulled. However, the trailer is now all over YouTube.

Gameplay certainly appears more action focussed than the rest of the Final Fantasy 13 saga, with hints of Assassin's Creed and Bayonetta certainly present.

The game is scheduled to launch in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
