    Where is Cloud, Sephiroth, Aerith, Tifa, and many more from Final Fantasy realms? Unless Square-Enix had already own them in its fighting realms: Final Fantasy: Dissidia…

      Heard a rumor a couple weeks back that Lightning is making the cut. Not Cloud, or any of them.

         It’s weird that Lightning is getting so much attention. I’m not exactly objecting to it since I’m one of the few that actually LIKED Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2, but still, Cloud seems like a much more obvious choice. He’s a definite a fan favorite, VII is by far the most popular FF, and it was also the first in the series for the original Play Station. I can’t wrap my head around why they would choose Lightning, though it almost seems likely since they’ve been promoting her so much. Even after the reception her games got.

          In this case, it’s not that weird. It seems that rather than look at the game as an ode to PlayStation’s notable past, some publishers (like Capcom) are using it to promote their upcoming games.

          Unlike many, I have nothing against new Dante, but in this game’s case, I think it would have been proper to instead include O.G. Dante. He’s already made his mark on PlayStation. This new Dante has yet to prove anything.

          • Sovereign Gale

            Oh, that’s true. And Final Fantasy XIII-3 is more or less confirmed, so if you’re right then it’d make sense for them to include Lightning if it meant promoting her next game. I just can’t help but question most of the roster, like how they’ve added new Dante instead of the old one, because I keep thinking along the lines of SSB where the roster was always focused on the most memorable Nintendo characters. This game just seems to feature ANY character associated with the PlayStation.
