Interest Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII's New Character Revealed
posted on 2013-01-16 09:25 EST
This year's eighth issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing Lumina, the new character who will appear in Square Enix's Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII role-playing game sequel, on Monday. The magazine is deliberately keeping the question of whether Lumina is a friend or foe unanswered; it describes her as a girl who appears and disappears in the story without warning.
The magazine is also revealing the Dark Muse and Sajin no Koei (Alone in the Dust Storm) "wear" — the optional costumes that the title character Lighting can wear. The "wear" have a practical function, since they give Lightning new magical powers and abilities.
Square Enix will release Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles this year. The game will represent the final chapter in Lightning's story. The game centers around a 13-day countdown until the end of the world, and players must save humanity within 13 days and 13 nights.
