Lightning gets Miqo'te outfit; online players fight alongside Lightning.

Square Enix has shared new video and screenshots of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII‘s in-game crossovers.

In Lightning Returns, Lightning will be able to wear an outfit based on the Miqo’te race from Final Fantasy XIV. Clues for acquiring this costume are hidden within the world of Nova Chrysalia. By clearing side quests, players will also be able to acquire weapons and shields based on Final Fantasy XIV city-states Limsa Lominsa, Ul’dah, and Gridania. View screenshots at the gallery.

In Final Fantasy XIV, Lightning will appear in one of the game’s Full Active Time Events, allowing players to fight alongside her in a periodic battle. Completing the event successfully will earn you gear and weaponry based on those from Lightning Returns. View screenshots at the gallery. Watch a trailer below.

    I wish more crossovers from other FF games

    • Willgaea

      They should make Lightning the Mario of FF. Who whould buy Lightning party?

      • Kyero Fox

        Absolutely no one and square would be utterly destroyed by how very little money they will get.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      they where already planning crossovers so might see more we already know Gilgamesh will happen

    • dmysta3000

      We are already getting a Shantottto cameo event plus a Crossover event with Dragon Quest X.

  • Budgiecat

    She be trollin other FF games lol

    • Kyero Fox

      Right? She’s almost like a real celeb woman who wants to get her face out every where and get popular (bad or good)

    • bloodiOS

      She’s probably sick of it all to be honest, but you know Square: “We made you so you go where we tell you to go, be it a battlefield or a whorehouse.”

  • Zackasaur

    Damn, I’m waiting for the PS4 version of FFXIV: ARR, but I want the FFXIII gear! I wonder if it will become valuable, or if I will be able to trade for it easily…

    • Yuri4prez

      Same here. I was going to make a female character in XIV just to get Lightning’s gear.

    • Akira_Tenshi

      It will be level 1 unique-untradeable gear. It is purely a vanity item.

  • Derpazu



  • Luna Kazemaru

    to bad the fate will end in 3 to 5secs because of the zerg army lol

    • Kyero Fox

      it’s also too bad they choose to give us a super boring one instead of oh idk, a better FF event?

      • TWOxACROSS

        You say that as if they can’t ever do ones for other FFs :/

  • Kobracon

    Lol even guys get the Lightning outfit?? Interesting…

    • Yuri4prez

      I thought they announced a while back girls get light, guys get Snow .

      • Kobracon

        Yeah but at the end of the vid, I’m sure I saw some male chars wearing Light’s costume…

        • aeoncs

          Don’t know what men are supposed to look like for you but that are most certainly only women at the end.

  • RSene

    That Lightning in that costume is from FFXIII, not Returns, right? Also, by seeing the imagens, it seems we’ll get costumes from Lightning and Snow from FFXIII, not Returns as well.

  • DarthBrian

    dat synergy!

  • bloodiOS

    I always wanted to see Lighting rendered in at full 1080p, complete with tessellation and full alpha transparent hair in real-time.
