Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy Coming to Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Next Week

Lighting returns...again.

The Final Fantasy XIII trilogy of games are coming to Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility. Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII are coming to Xbox One on November 13.

The Lightning trilogy that comprises FFXIII saw the Final Fantasy series debut on the Xbox console. Reactions to the various XIII games vary, but they are very pretty games and I'm looking forward to seeing them enhanced on Xbox One X.

The FFXIII trilogy first came out on Xbox 360 between 2009 and 2013 and will be enhanced for Xbox One X. The trilogy joins a bunch of other Final Fantasy games like Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X and X-2, and Final Fantasy XII that are coming to the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
