Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Has A Frenemy And Changeable Costumes

Jump magazine has more information about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The magazine introduced Lumina who looks like Serah, but with a little bit of a gothic lolita style. Lumina appears to know where Lightning is headed. Sometimes Lumina helps Lightning, but other times Lumina gets in Lightning’s way. Lumina kind of views Lightning like a toy.


Lightning will have new abilities and magic spells in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It seems like there is some kind of guard and evasion system in the game too. Players will be able to take side quests posted on a bulletin board and clearing these might extend the time the world survives.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII gives Lightning new costumes. Don’t like it? You can change her look by obtaining different "wear." There are three kinds of wear in a set and you can equip wear in battle. Lightning’s default costume is called Equilibrium. The Dark Muse outfit gives Lighting a camouflage jacket, knife, and a lattice style shield. The Shadow Dust costume is kind of like samurai armor.



Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release this fall on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

If it's real they should rename it "Lightning and Square Enix Jump The Shark".

I don't care what anyone says, I'm looking forward to this.

Not feeling Serah's doppelganger, though.

Lumina is just them saving money. I wish they'd fire Toriyama though.

Please no more FFXIII, dear god.

So you don't want Versus XIII?

Keep waahing about how you all hate FFXIII. Idgaf.

But why hasn't someone submitted a post about how NA is FINALLY getting a white PS3 (albeit the redheaded stepchild model but still)? Fuck, this is the best day EVARR.

Just how can anyone judge a game before you've played it ?

I know, it just didn't have that special something about it that a lot of the other ones did.
Apparently i'm like 3/4 of the way through but i just keep whining that it keep dragging on D:

FFXIII was pretty annoying. XIII-2 is slightly better. Though...if you can't stand the 1st one at all, I wonder if you will like the 2nd ^^

Rof! One of the most underrated RPGs! You are the first one I meet who liked it :D I feel you here - I loved this game. Though I still haven't finished it. I think after 90 hours I just got tired. But this game was awesome. Its concept was so simple... the characters and the plot weren't even particularly deep (though the battle system was freaking difficult if you wanted to really master it), but it just...somehow it pulled me into it :D

Well, everyone seems to be hating on it, because it's so freaking difficult :D (I have to admit, I was yelling at the screen sometimes) Where in the game are you right now?
I think I've almost reached the end of the game, only two chapters left. But I have some leveling to do... that's why I lost my motivation ^^

Meanwhile, Versus...

Am I the only one who find those costumes hideous?
lilly0 18th-Jan-2013 08:06 am (UTC)
I'm going to give this game a try, however, no one should expect me to be super-excited about this. Because I'm not. And I can't stand Lightning... playing a whole game with her won't exactly be motivating for me ><

law_oneofmany 18th-Jan-2013 01:01 pm (UTC)
i'd rock the shit outta those costumes!

Man, you guys. The trailer for this looks awesome. Don't judge just because it's "another FF13" game. XIII-2 is pretty silly, I will fully admit, but this looks like more of a step in the right direction.
