Lightning Returns FF XIV costume

As you all know know, Lightning Returns is not high on my list. Despite being a Final Fantasy fan girl, this game just does not look that good. But look, there’s a new trailer to win us over. Oh, but it fails.

For your viewing pleasure, check out the various costumes that Lightning will be wearing upon her return:

Apparently, each costume is linked to a different ‘schema’ and will be based on her specific abilities. Maybe this will be fluid and add something new and beneficial to the game. However, I am extremely skeptical about this. Also, it doesn’t sit right with me for her to get costumes from across the Final Fantasy franchise – don’t dress up as beloved character, become one yourself!

Let’s just hope that the game is so great, they decided to add costumes as a bonus. It certainly won’t just be a way to disguise the fact that the game isn’t very good… right?

      I wish they would make Final fantasy 7 x or something. Make a full remake of 7 and then make a sequel somehow.

        Hows about they just make a new good old fashioned JRPG with a epic story and less annoying characters. A game that goes back to the turned based combat that’s also open world?

        Any game with Lightning in it must make enough money for Square that they feel the need to star her in three games. The fourth game she’s in you will have the option to redo her hair.

        And all they change in the remake is nothing. They just make the graphics pretty and let a whole new generation experience the awesomness of the Final Fantasy series during its PS1 days

          • Umar Silent Hill Save Lisa :(

            September 16, 2013 at 10:29

            Lol the original story of the name is really great. Square was on the verge of shutting down and going bankrupt. They told this guy to make a game, which was to be Square’s last game before shutting down. This game creator, Hironubo Sakaguchi, knowing there was nothing to lose decided to just throw everything into a game, and knowing it was going to the FINAL game he makes for Square, named it Final Fantasy. The game then ended up saving Square and it became the company’s biggest franchise. So the name stands as a testament to the passion and greatness of the franchise, though, it is far from what it used to be.

            The irony is, the game that saved them might be the reason for their downfall.
