After rumours on Wednesday suggesting that we may soon be seeing Square Enix's thirteenth Final Fantasy title arrive on Steam, the developer of the long-running fantasy series has officially pulled back the curtain with announcement that the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy will be coming to Steam on October 9th.

Currently the game is available for pre-order with a 10% discount, putting it at the easily digestible $14.39. Considering the playtime you can get out of a Final Fantasy game, that's some extremely awesome price per hour mark. Square Enix also confirmed that it will be the trilogy that comes to Steam, so expect release dates on XIII-2 and Lightning Returns soon enough.

The arrival of XIII on Steam is definitely a monumental one for Square Enix, and for PC players alike. Hopefully with this shift to PC we can expect to see Final Fantasy XV arrive alongside its console brethren in 2015. Check out the Steam page for all the info on the PC version, and find the system requirements below.

A eagle-eyed poster over at NeoGAF has spotted what looks to be a Steam logo on Final Fantasy XIII's portal website, suggesting that we could see the 13th title in the long-running series heading to PC.

NeoGAF user Slowdive spotted the logo, asking whether it had been a "mistake or?" Currently developer and publisher Square Enix has made Final Fantasy III, VI and VIII available to PC users on Steam, though it wouldn't be a surprise to see a more current Final Fantasy hit the digital distributor with recent rumours suggesting in-development title Final Fantasy XV may come to PC. If the rumour does turn out to be true, we may even see its spin offs XII-2 and Lightning Returns come to Steam.

Treat this as rumour for now, but here is to hoping we see more Final Fantasy titles heading over to PC.

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.

Sqeenix have release their cinematic Final Fantasy XIII trailer with English dub, so everyone hanging to play the game from Western shores can check this out to become acquainted with the characters they'll soon be spending hours upon hours with.

It's great to see in this cinematic that each character has had their lip-syncing animated for the English version of the game, and it doesn't look like too shabby of a job, either.

You can grab the trailer in download or streaming from here, or simply watch the embedded video below.
