Final Fantasy X’s summoner costume makes a return appearance.
On an episode of Square Enix Presents for E3 2013, director Motomu Toriyama and producer Yoshinori Kitase revealed that protagonist Lightning will be able to equip an outfit based on Yuna’s costume from Final Fantasy X in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. If you’ll recall, this was before Yuna went all insane gunslinger and instead stuck with a restrictive priestess robe.
And how would Lightning look in that? Well, fairly typical.
This may not be anything more than fan service, which is fine. Considering that Square Enix will be releasing Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster in the coming months for PS3 and PlayStation Vita, with Lightning Returns to follow on February 11th 2014 for North America, it’s understandable to want to put in references to other Final Fantasy games.
Now, if only we could get some indication that this will be the last Final Fantasy XIII game to release, ever. That would be well worth the announcement.
