Dress up as Lightning or Snow and use their weapons.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will feature a number of Final Fantasy XIII cross-overs, Square Enix confirmed at Japan Expo in France.

A Lightning costume can be obtained by fighting alongside Lightning herself. There’s also a Snow costume for males, and weapons from Final Fantasy XIII.

Final Fantasy XIV will launch for PlayStation 3 and PC on August 27. A PlayStation 4 version is planned for 2014.

Thanks, NeoGAF, Ruliweb.

    Gods, that Lalafell in the Lightning costume is absolutely adorable.

  • fyi1191

    When you’re teaming up with Snow, he will probably just use STEELGUARD.

  • Souter

    First Lightning in cloud costume and now this lol what next I ask!!

    • SprintsMcGee

      I wouldn’t mind a Dagger costume in one of these games =3

  • Luna Kazemaru

    It was added because the producer for Lightning Returns stole the Miqo’te costume for Lightning. This is just Yoshi-P poking back with friendly payback the QQ is funny.

    • Kobracon

      Lol did he really steal it? Thought it was just a reference or an homage.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        yeah hat’s why yosh was joking about getting pay back its just fun between the two

        • Kobracon

          Ah

  • Warboss Aohd

    Why not Sazh instead? he woz da best character in dat series.

    • Kobracon

      He certainly was the most down to earth guy. Its an online game, I’m sure they can add this stuff in time. Who knows

  • TiAn

    Just what the hell is the weapons the hume monk is using? It’s sillyness to the max :D

    • Kobracon

      It….it looks like two of Sazhs guns to form a gauntlet….and on the right, the conjurer is using what appears to be a book made with 5 of Hope’s boomerangs XD

      • TiAn

        “when we design our videogame fictional weapons we aim for one thing first, impracticality”
        :D

  • MogCakes

    Lightning Miqo’te here I come! <3<3<3

  • Anime10121

    Wait a sec, so Lightning will actually have a part in the actual story of FFXIV!?

    • Luna Kazemaru

      no its a timed event for fates most likely

      • Anime10121

        Oh okay got ya, I was about to say, damn Lightning gets around! Thanks for the clarification :D

        • Luna Kazemaru

          someone actually canned they preorder because of this.

          • Anime10121

            Someone is actually an idiot. :P

            I still can and probably never will understand the utter hate/disgust people have with the XIII series, it’s really quite pitiful that you can have so much hate for something fictional.

            • Budgiecat

              Because the constricting hallway like gameplay sucks? Because the writing is godawful? Because the characters are ridiculously annoying? Because Toriyama is a pretentious talentless hack who shouldn’t be near a video game company? Because it’s existence tarnished the reputation of the FF series and S-E in general? (Besides FF XIV 1.0 abysmal launch). Because it’s series delayed future FF games we could have been playing now?

              • Luna Kazemaru

                ^this right here sounds just like all the QQ from the posters on the forums

                • Pyrofrost

                  Pretty much.
                  It’s like: ohhhh “Magitek Armour” soooo gooood
                  ohhhhh “Judges” sooooo gooood

                  However, something from FFXIII is somehow destructive to the game and destroys any sense of immersion. Those same QQing assholes would be singing a completely different tune if they were given Cloud and Sephiroth costumes.

                  On a side note, the GD community on the beta forums has to be the worst forum community I’ve ever been part of.

                  • Luna Kazemaru

                    Most of them should be cleared out once the game is out but OBT is going to be hell

                    • Pyrofrost

                      I assume they would close the beta forums for open beta though. By that time they won’t be taking feedback and updating; they will just be stress testing for the full retail release.

              • Kobracon

                FFXII tarnished FFs reputation to me. XIII saved it in my eyes.

          • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

            Really? It’s a simple little cameo event. They don’t have to do it.

            • Luna Kazemaru

              they are hiding their hate with saying to much fan service will ruin 14 lol. I can’t really link the forums because of nda

              • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

                I think its stupid for people to cancel their preorder because of this, however It could get pretty annoying. Imagine you join a random server and the first thing you see is a bunch of lightnings running around.

              • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                On the tester forums? I think I’ve just found the thread.

                • Luna Kazemaru

                  now look how many pages lol all of them qqing about breaking immersion

                  • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

                    So silly.

                    • Luna Kazemaru

                      the gaf thread the tears the wonderful tears…

          • bloodiOS

            Whoa! For real?!Man, I personally I don’t like the XIII trilogy and hated everything Lightning Returns had shown thus far, but to seriously cancel their pre-orders of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn over a some costumes?! Someone must’ve had their skulls stuffed full of cotton candy.

  • bloodiOS

    I think her Goddess armor would blend in better though.

  • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

    I hope theres crossover with other FF games. Maybe with other square games too. A keyblade would be pretty cool.

  • artemisthemp

    I presume those item will be DLC.

  • ギャビン

    Serahs weapon will be mine!

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    Oh God, NO! NOOO!

    • LightGenx

      *obligatory deal with it GIF*

      • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

        -_-

  • LightGenx

    Miqo’te Snow doesn’t look too bad.

  • GODDUKEMONEXA

    LIGHTNING 4 EVER

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    I’m definitely okay with this, hope there’s more costumes to come.

  • MasterSensei

    The Lalafell looks so cute with the lightning costume >.<

  • Hidayat246

    serah arrow is the best

  • Kobracon

    Well if its attainable in game, I have absolutely no qualms about this.

  • LordKaiser

    I wanted to play this game for my friends that will go there but sadly it will not happen. I hope they enjoy it and all of you.

    I met them all on White Knight Chronicles. R.I.P. Geonet you will never be forgotten.

    FFIV costumes will fit nicely.

    • James Howard

      Same loved WKC…this will be good, hell its like easter eggs :)

  • SOLOmio

    and for vita?
    crap as always(figurative speech, don’t take it seriously ) why do i even bother.

  • PrinceHeir

    i like Lightning, but i think we needed more other characters like in FFXV you know or even the old games :P

  • James Howard

    This is I think they mentioned planned for Event Battles etc. Just imagine a Squall/Riona battle, Vivi/Steiner I doubt Anima will be a primal since Bahamut is considered the elder primal…FF14 sees it as a homage to the past games like easter eggs…can’t wait for the ps3 version and PS4 :)

  • katsumi1980

    Riona would be awesome!
