The latest issue of V-Jump introduces the first new character set to appear in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
Lumina is a young woman who appears at Lightning’s destination. She’s both a help and a hindrance to Lightning. She’s very Sera-like, but more goth-loli, and with duck-lips. She appears to be using Lightning as a toy.
Lightning, as previously confirmed, will have many new costumes in Lightning Returns, referred to in the game as “Wear.” You can set three types of Wear and change them in battle. These include: the “Dark Muse,” which consists of a knife, camouflage jacket, pants with wide holes, and a grid-shaped shield; and “Alone in a Sandstorm,” which is armor like a samurai’s.
Of course, Lightning will also have new magic and abilities, and she’ll be able to guard and evade. She can also receive quests from a bulletin board. Clearing these quests apparently leads to time extensions.
Thanks, Game Nyarth.
