The estimated time for you to complete Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is 50 hours.
Game Design Director Yuji Abe shared a few new details about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII with Famitsu. Abe estimates that the game will take most gamers around 50 hours to complete in their “initial run”. This is longer than Final Fantasy XIII-2 which took me around 30 hours to complete the main story.
Many people were worried about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII’s length because of its special “time limit” gimmick. Many thought the game would only be 20 hours long. Hopefully Abe’s words are true as RPG fans would be disappointed if it’s short.
