Plus, details on Lightning's "Wear" outfits.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

The latest issue of V-Jump introduces the first new character set to appear in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Lumina is a young woman who appears at Lightning’s destination. She’s both a help and a hindrance to Lightning. She’s very Sera-like, but more goth-loli, and with duck-lips. She appears to be using Lightning as a toy.

Lightning, as previously confirmed, will have many new costumes in Lightning Returns, referred to in the game as “Wear.” You can set three types of Wear and change them in battle. These include: the “Dark Muse,” which consists of a knife, camouflage jacket, pants with wide holes, and a grid-shaped shield; and “Alone in a Sandstorm,” which is armor like a samurai’s.

Of course, Lightning will also have new magic and abilities, and she’ll be able to guard and evade. She can also receive quests from a bulletin board. Clearing these quests apparently leads to time extensions.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

    Lol duck lips xD

  • Himiko

    Woo, get some lolis in this gaaame

  • whiteferrero

    the wear system reminds of of erza (from fairy tail) – yes, i know it’s also similar to dresspheres. but you know, erza and lightning have that same warrior vibe.

    i just hope they have the same tastes in the weird armor department. heh.

    • I suddenly realize how I miss naming character in old series.

    • Erza – my favorite character in Fairy Tail. =)

  • >Sera-like, goth-like with duck lips

    I don’t wanna think about it….

  • dear square enix.

    Any chance you give us Final fantasy versus XIII news?

    from your fans

    • P.S

      Also any chance of news on that Type-0 Localization? Just saying you DID confirm such a thing in the FFT-0 Ultimania.

      also from a fan.

      I personally would pay close attention to the “duck-lips” gal. She may let slip something about a particular “duck-butt”.

  • paperclichepixel

    Let us see, please.


  • …….duck lips??

    DId I read that right? Please tell me this is some sort of joke.

    • Himiko

      It means she purses her lips. Blame the human race.

    The wiki link about “duck lips” just shows me a pretty person kind of pouting. I don’t get why that would be called “duck lips”. I figured kawaii would’ve covered it O.o

    Curious what a Serah-like gothic lolita would look like. Serah’s black tears in RotG will be hard to trump, I think xD

    Anyways, Lumina sounds like some annoying character to rouse a desire to slap, but I’m kind of interested in the whole “using Lightning as a toy” bit. Maybe there’s something beyond just being a brat?

    No images?


  • Cool?

  • xMCXx

    Duck lips?
    Are you fucking kidding me? How about some Internet Memes while you’re at it, SE?

  • EspadaKiller

    So, the costumes are like Dresspheres in FFX-2?

    • DarthBrian

      Yes. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  • DarthBrian

    Everything about this game sounds so fucking good to me. I can’t wait. <3

  • Budgiecat

    What girl on facebook doesn’t have a random duck lip pose or two in their photo album these days

  • PrinceHeir
