Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Image Reveals Lightning's New Look
Square Enix has decided to redesign Lightning's appearance a bit for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. A new image from the latest issue of Japanese mag Famitsu shows her grim new wardrobe.
For Returns, Lightning is wearing black armor with a cape. It's a far cry from the colorful, revealing outfits from the previous two games. Her clothing actually looks like it's designed for battle this time around. She finally realized that her upper thigh needs protection, too.
The muted, functional clothing makes sense in Lightning. After all, it's a pretty dark game. Lightning has only 13 days to save the world from being destroyed by the Sea of Chaos. It's not the sort of occasion that inspires a woman to break out her hot pants.
Lightning Returns is in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will reportedly arrive in March.
