Next Character and Costume Details Revealed for Lightning Returns

The latest issue of VJump has begun leaking out and has revealed some new information on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

The biggest details from this is the announcement of an all new character named Lumina. She appears at Lightning’s destination and is said to be both a help and a hindrance. Her appearance is somewhat like a gothic-lolita Serah (complete with duck-lips), and is content with toying with Lightning. Not much else is known about her but more information should be available soon.

Also revealed were some updates on Lightning’s costumes. Known in the game as the “Wear” system, you can equip up to three at once and change between them in real time during battles. During the Jump Festa trailer you may have caught a glimpse of one known as “Dark Muse.” This one has a grill-shaped shield, chap-like pants, a camouflage jacket, and a knife. Her other outfit revealed looks similar to a samurai’s armor and is called “Alone in the Dust.” Lightning herself will have new magic and abilities such as guard and evade.

Similar to Marks in FFXII, quests in Lightning Returns can be retrieved from a bulletin board. By completing these quests you can extend the time left in the world.
