Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Watch an extended trailer featuring Noel here.

Square Enix has released new screenshots and artwork of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, showing Lightning’s new outfits “Dark Muse” and “Shadow’s Dust,” and new character Lumina, a playful little girl who at times is a guide to Lightning, but at other times a distraction.

    those alt costumes are better than her main. especially that first one.

  • Zuhri69

    I know people said this before but Lumina does looked like Serah.

  • I’m so hyped for this game. Reading those preview. Damn, I want to play it now!!!

  • Aditya Dharma

    lumina is cute^^ yeah she looks like serah but i think her face is slightly cuter in my opinion,
    i wish she’s also playable but they already confirm that lightning is the only playable character here,,,,

  • i Hope We Will see Snow and Hope And Other,Because I miss them
    They Was My Best Heroes in #FFXIII <3

    Game looks great. Really liking the look of those new costumes, especially the Shadow’s Dust one.
    And now that I see Lumina’s hair, I’m seeing why everybody thinks she looks like Serah. The face is still different though. >_>

    Screenshots look really nice… Im hoping summons will still play a part.

  • Thanks for sharing.

    I’m sorry but Lumina just has the dumbest face. :/

    The big nose, the wide mouth, the chubby face. She just looks goofy as hell for some reason.

  • Akira_Tenshi

    Square confirmed there is a reason Lumina looks like Serah.

  • PrinceHeir

    sounds like FFX-2 Dressphere :)

      Except the fact that it will probably be worse. Lightning Returns will use the same system however… we will yet again see the same “returning” magic skills from all the FFXIII and FFXIII-2 games.

      So what will basicly happen and this is only a theory dont hate me for it as i will get this game day one, the thing i will happen is they will take all the black magic skills and put them into one setup of clothes, seperate the healing ones, buffing ones, and seperate the skill attacks so it will look like many different jobs.

      I hope to god we will see tons of new magic skills but i fear for the “same” that happened with FFXIII-2 :( almost nothing new.

        would love a customization where you can put any skill at any dress, but the dress can strengthen specific types of magic.

        kinda like X clothes can strengthen white magic, but not black magic.

        you can still however put those skills despite the drawback.

        doubt they’ll do this though, they probably want more specific functions other than aesthetics.

          it sounds like this is what they are going for.

          you can put any skill into any outfit, but certain skills are more compatible with certain outfits that enhance their properties.
