Lightning Returns Achievements

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 might not be overflowing with achievements, but it does showcase the new features in this expanded sequel. Taking a sharp turn from the narrow corridors of the original Final Fantasy 13, Lightning Returns puts players in control of the sole heroine with free reign of an expansive environment.

That’s right, towns and side-quests make a welcome return from their semi-appearance in Final Fantasy 13-2. Check out the challenges and jobs available in the secret achievements list below. Ultimate lairs and ultimate weapons abound, if you’ve got the patience to go for them.
