According to reports from Nova Crystallis, a new leak from Japanese magazine Famitsu has revealed details about upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, including a new "Active Time Battle". Other features include a 24-hour day cycle in-game, only controlling the Lightning character and monsters appearing both in and outside cities.
In LRFFXIII the player controls Lightning and Lightning alone, however, the game is not an action RPG. Weapons, shields, accessories, and abilities are formed into “Styles” which can be switched out during battle. The outward appearance and performance of these Styles will enjoy a great selection of customization. The act of defeating enemies will allow Lightning to earn points which will increase available world time and items to strengthen her equipment. Unlike the previous games, however, Lightning will be limited in the number of items she’ll be able to carry.

Monsters will appear both in and around the city. At certain times, black haze will appear in certain areas which signifies a new monster territory. Approximately half of the game’s monsters are new, so you’ll still encounter some familiar types from the previous two games.
The magazine leak has also revealed that the Final Fantasy game will not be featuring any DLC, with Game Director Motomu Toriyama saying that the "end of this title can be experienced within one singular package".

You can check out the full run down over at Nova Crystallis and you can also check out the latest trailer below for a glimpse at Lightning.
