    Part 1


    Part 2




    Characters

    Lightning: As the Savior, Lightning is tasked with guiding all souls to the new world prepared by Bhunivelze. However, with growing suspicion over her master and his divine plan, Lightning soon finds herself wanting to save the dying world instead. But this desire goes against the will of Bhunivelze. Is Lightning prepared to go up against a god…
    Bhunivelze: The mythological god who defeated his mother to gain control over the world. He calls upon Lightning and guides her fate. However, he will also be the one to deceive and sever her.
    Cid Raines: The dead have chosen Cid Raines to be their advocate, and through their strong will, he appears once again before Lightning with a request.
    Lumina: Lumina appears throughout the story, helping and hindering Lightning. But what is this mysterious girl’s true wish? Why does she resemble Serah so much? With tears streaming down her face, Lumina cries, “Please don’t leave me alone…”
    Snow: After 500 hundred years of despair, Snow seems to be showing a glimpse of his former self. Has he finally returned to the heated Snow we know and love!?
    Hope: Similar to Lightning, Hope has also been robbed of emotion. In this scene, a bit of that stolen emotion has returned. But is he expressing relief or sorrow?
    Sazh, Vanille, and Fang have conflicts of their own that only Lightning can solve. Yeul’s wish may have something to do with Noel and Caius.


    Character Quotes

    Lightning: This is goodbye.
    Cid: You will know which soul to find.
    Lumina: How long are you going to pretend to be “Lightning”?
    Lumina: Please, don’t leave me alone…
    Snow: After 500 years-

    Translation of the Lightning Returns environment trailers:
    In the wake of the Japanese-only trailers showing off the the continents of Lightning Returns, a community member provided me with a link to a translation of Hope and Lightning’s conversations. The translation serves to clarify the position of the “Salvation Council”, which we previously believed to be the followers of Etro who have been killing women that resemble the Savior. The original translator has asked to be credited as Ryu-Chan.

    First sensible VII comment I've actually seen.

    One thing about the trailer though is that she doesn't seem to recognize Lightning?

    Yeah I said it to youtubers they say "Why don't our fans get the remake we deserve" I can't see that it won't be the same. If it does they complain it compared to the original.

    Im sure Snow doesn't recognise her either. I like Snow's look on this one even though he looks like a bulkier version of Riku. Im not a huge fan of him in the other games. Well the trailer shows that Vanille will highly likely be in the game.

    Is it okay if I play this game even if I didn't touch FFXIII-2? This looks interesting, but I'm not really interested in messing with FFXIII-2.

    It's continues from 13-2 but can be played by itself without any need to play the previous two.

    • You can use GP (Glory Points) to stop time on the field and teleport to a specific spot.
    • You mainly earn GP by clearing battles. At first it was shared with Radiant Power (points sacrificed to the star tree Yggdrasil to extend the life of the world), but now they are separate and available regardless of the world’s lifespan.
    • Since Lightning grows outside of battle too, only clearing important event scenes will set a parameter. It’s possible to clear the game as fast as possible without participating in battles.
    • As for parameter changes in the category of usual play, the weight of equipment is considerably large. (It’s possible to make up the difference when playing through it.)
    • Since strong weapons are sold at the start, you’ll be stronger if you buy them. If you buy the strongest one, you’d probably be fine using it until the last boss. Of course, the price [is so high] you won’t afford it without doing your best.
    • The first play through is difficult, but theoretically it’s possible to grasp everything in one play through.
    • You can go to just about any spot on the map that looks possible. (About 90%.) The dungeon’s structures have a lot of high and low variations, and it’s possible to fall right to the bottom.
    • Basically you can seamlessly go to all the places you are able to walk. Basically anywhere you can walk, you can go seamlessly. You can walk through all the continents, all seamlessly. Since you warp when you are riding a vehicle, it causes loading.

    Honestly, the whole costume thing is what had me worried most. I thought, originally, lightning wasn't supposed to be a sex-symbol. Regardless of that costume being "proper" and "true to form" in regards to what it's representing, we all know the real purpose for that costume. Sure, smart business plan I suppose, but it hurts the image of Lightning a little bit. Fortunately, it will likely be DLC, so I can ignore it completely

    Yeah Toriyama didn't deny the thing about her breasts from what I read in a interview. Yeah the recent campaign is "Final Fantasy Go There". Yes it could be a mixed bag as for DLC I wouldn't find it surprising.

    I love the XIII series. But i will be ignoring the fan service costumes. Same goes for XIV. Just takes away the realism for me. Hard to explain.

    I hate how the have upped the sex appeal for Lightning in this game.

    Lightning can participate as a contender at the Colosseum at the "Palace of Amusement" in the City of Pleasure, Yusnaan!! If she defeats opponents on the competition table, she can receive prizes such as "X-Potions"
