Noel out for Lightning's blood.

The latest issue of Jump reveals new details about Noel Kreiss’ reappearance in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Feeling responsible for inviting the collapse of the world, Noel, the so-called “Shadow Hunter,” strives to maintain public order in the back of society. He dreams of a world in which all people live. But Lightning appears to have broken it.

A quote from Noel, likely directed at Lightning, reads: “I will kill you and the prophesied future will become a reality.”

Using a variety of arts, Noel is looking to fight.

Thanks, FF-Reunion.

    I only played the first xiii…that’s hard to say. Anyway I always thought he had the coolest design out of the xiii series cast.

    Pfft. As if Noel could stand up to Lightning, lol. She’d swat him like a fly.

    On that note, I can’t wait to own him :3. I never did care for the guy in XIII-2. He’s right up there with Hope in terms of annoyance.

    • Budgiecat

      what about me

    • Aly Hesham

      never liked him much either…I really can’t wait to beat him up bad..I hope light humiliates him lol

  • xMCXx

    Is it really necessary to write his name with two “S”s? :p

    Also, I’m really interested how Lightning Returns will start considering 13-2’s Gainax Ending.
    Or do we already know that? I’m not really following the news of this game.

    • Dillon Rider

      gainax ending? not sure what you mean but if you explain it id be sure to help you out with that question.

    • BizarreJelly

      I imagine it’ll kick off from the 13-2 Lightning DLC, youtube link go!


      • Budgiecat

        I doubt it. I mean….it would make SENSE but making sense isn’t something Toriyama is good at..

      • xMCXx

        Oh, completely forgot about that dumb DLC. ^^

    Being Noel is super suffering, Think about it;

    (FFXIII-2 spoilers if anyone cares)
    You’re the last of 3 survivors of the human race,
    Your mentor/buddy asks you to kill him a la Highlander but walks out on you for being a pussy,
    The only female friend you know dies and ends up in metaphysical time limbo (and splits herself into multiple beings only for THEM to die)
    The instant you give up hope (heh) you’re suddenly thrown into Vahalla, and then Lightning in armor shows up and asks you to go pick up her sister,
    THEN after all that, all that, just when you think you finally killed Caius, Serah then dies in your arms.
    (End Spoilers)

    If I were him I’d kill Lightning too.

    • Arcana Gear

      yes, and we dont know what happened on these 500 years too, kinda curious to know it.

  • new_tradition

    I really hope we get a lot of flashbacks to explain what happened between the ending of FFXIII-2 and the start of LR. A lot of the characters’ circumstances in LR just doesn’t jive with how things were left in FFXIII-2 >.>

  • Arcana Gear

    summing up, like snow he was “corrupted” by all these time paradoxes. So he is kinda crazy with heroic ideals and will fight light.

  • Ace

    He still has parachute pants.

  • Aldridge517

    Noel’s been wearing the same clothes for like 500 years

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    I never really liked noel. But I am hoping the verdict to be good in LR:FFXIII. Also, I don’t like to discriminate but he looks like a villager due to his clothes.
