With the recent release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, a new campaign has launched in collaboration between the MMORPG and the upcoming game Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The campaign will add new content in between each game, and for Lightning Returns it is a new costume that resembles the Miqo’te race from FFXIV.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XII is the third and final game in the Final Fantasy XIII series that is part of Fabula Nova Crystallis. The game will serve as the end of the XIII series and Lightning’s story, tying up the mythologies and premise of the series. The game takes place 500 years after the real ending of Final Fantasy XIII-2 where the death of the goddess Etro releases Chaos, merges the realms into one called Nova Chrysalia. With only 13 days till the end of the world, Lightning awakes from her crystallization and is chosen to be the messiah to bring about a new world.
The combat has also been reworked and is now more action oriented. Still having the basics of the ATB system, Lightning can now move freely in battle and have to perfectly time a block, dodge or counter. One major feature is the ability to customise Lightning by acquiring and purchasing different outfits, such as the Miqo’te and Moogle costumes seen above. The costumes are not just cosmetic items as each will provide unique abilities, skills and poses.
