A few new details about Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII were recently revealed at a Japanese press event, reports Gematsu. The game's fourth continent, the Wildlands, was uncovered. This will be a large, open-world area – large enough for players to ride around on the series' beloved Chocobo, apparently.

Also revealed is the return of Final Fantasy XIII's ginger-haired ball of sunshine, Vanille. In Lightning Returns, Vanille is under the care of a religious group called the "Salvation Council" in the game's main city, Luxerion. Vanille joins other Final Fantasy XIII vets Snow, Hope and Fang.
