Leading up to February's release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix put together a 16-bit retrospective trailer that recaps the story so far. The eight minutes of nostalgia-inducing footage gives the series an SNES makeover, making it look like an HD version of Final Fantasy VI.

If you wanted to jump into the series, but didn't want to play through the FFXIII and FFXIII-2, this trailer might be all you need. Now, what are the chances that, instead of the HD remakes Square Enix keeps putting out, we could get some official 16-bit demakes? I'd buy that.
