Wake up to this live-action Lightning Returns commercial

Short, but sweet

Set to release next week in Japan, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII latest 15 second TV spot showcases a live-action version of the titular character. Albeit extremely brief, the model portraying Lightning, intermixed with the in-game character model, does look quite spot on.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, a game where Lighting returns, presumably strikes, then plays dress-up, will be available on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The conclusion (hopefully) and third act of the Final Fantasy XIII saga hits Japan on November 21, and follows up in North America and Europe early next February.
