Square Enix has shared the first screenshots of Oerba Dia Vanille, returning from Final Fantasy XIII, in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

“As Vanille opened her eyes from her long sleep, she realized she was given a special gift; she could hear the voices of the dead. Dubbed the ‘saint,’ Vanille now spends her days under the Order’s protection in Luxerion.”

You’ll also see Lightning in her “Crescent Moon,” “Strider,” and “Paladin” costumes, as well as Luxerion, the Divine City of Light.

A new online feature called the “Outerworld Service,” which lets users submit screenshots, messages, and battle scores from Lightning Returns to social media sites, was also announced.

    If she’s considered a saint, then I’m the fucking President of the United States.

    • Zackasaur

      Um? She and the world are reborn, and she can now hear the voices of the dead, while no one else can.

      In a religious order, I can see why she would be made a saint. They’d see it as some gift from a god.

        I can’t believe people are buying into this recton garbage, lol. Okay, you’re right. The world has been reborn *nodnod*.

      Hey,we still haven’t played the game.The word could have another meaning,or be something else entirely.Hearing the dead is a godlike skill,if you think about it,as Zackasaur said. Also,please,Vanille is awesome.It may not be to you,I understand,but to me she is.Some respect,please.

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Being “awesome” has nothing to do with being a saint. Still… There are so many things wrong with the structure of this world, wow… Lol. I clearly won’t be playing this one for the story.
