Square Enix released Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the direct sequel to Final Fantasy XIII-2, for the PC platform on December 10, 2015. Nearly six years later, Square Enix has surprised Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII fans by releasing a new patch for the game on Steam, which fixes a problem with its pink-haired heroine, Lightning. Apparently, Lightning’s voice didn’t play correctly in some scenes, but that has now been addressed. Square Enix may have decided to revisit Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII in preparation of its release on Microsoft’s popular game subscription service, Xbox Game Pass.

During Microsoft’s XO19 event (feels like a lifetime ago, that), Microsoft made an eye-catching announcement about a raft of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass. Included were 10 games from the Final Fantasy franchise, such as the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy (Final Fantasy 13, Final Fantasy 13-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13).
