If you aren't playing Final Fantasy XIII yet, I bet you are thinking about it. This shimmering shot of a fight from the game shows off its gorgeous concept design.


What's the game about? Here's a quick summary, from Kotaku's Mike Fahey:

Hovering above the surface of the planet Pulse, the shell-like city of Cocoon was once a haven for humanity, but fear of powerful ancient beings known as the fal'Cie has stirred fear and unrest among the people, causing the military to respond by "quarantining" anyone who comes in contact with fal'Cie. It's during these tumultuous times that our heroes - Snow, Lightning, Sazh, Hope, Fang, and Vanille - find themselves on the wrong side of the human-fal'Cie conflict, united by a task that could mean the end of the world as they know it.

If you gave up on Final Fantasy a few iterations ago, it might be time to come back to it.
