I forgot to put in my previous post that the album comes with a code for the "Flower of Battle" DLC costume as a bonus:

I'm assuming Hamauzu will have little involvement with the soundtrack, like XIII-2.

IIRC he did the main battle theme.  SO they may commission him for some key tracks or whatever.

Yeah, I did manage to get that song from iTunes awhile back.

Lightning Returns will include a Hard Mode for advanced players -- Source: Nova Crystallis (via: Dengeki Online)



"In a new interview with Dengeki Online, Lightning Returns game design direct Yuji Abe shared some new details on the game's battle systems, worldview, dungeons and more."

"Back at E3, Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama unveiled a variety of new costumes for Lightning, including a FFXIV themed one featuring the garb and weapon set of a female Miqo'te. The outfit has since been detailed further in this week's Famitsu, and promises a unique victory pose based on the "sexy" Miqo'te /pose emote that occurs in FFXIV. Additionally, Lightning will be able to don a Black Mage outfit that appears to be a sort of contrast to Serah's White Mage garb from FFXIII-2." -- Source: Nova Crystallis

"What seems to be missing from the above article is that Toriyama apparently acknowledges it's not really a pose that fits Lightning's character, but they put it in because it's the Miqo'te female's canon victory pose. It seems all of the reference costumes are being given their canon victory poses from their original games, if the Cloud costume is any indication."

Hey look.

People is freaking out about the Miqo'te costume. What a surprise.

I saw that too.  At this point, reading the comments about the costume is as much a pastime as playing games.

Eh, even though I don't really care at this point, I do have to say that regardless of outfit, if Lightning strikes that pose in the game they've pretty much just said "Fuck it." to giving Lightning any consistent personality whatsoever.

^She does other poses in battle for what I've seen, but I really don't feel like all of that is a big deal right now. I rather save any kind of judgment until after putting hours into LR and come to a clear opinion of it.

At first I was kind of indifferent, but the more I see some game play trailers, the more I really want to play this. I haven't anticipated an FF title in this way in a long, long time.

Neon Reflector Yellow.

Because that's what was missing from her fashion closet of doom.

Nah, this is probably the best original costume thus far (or at least what I've seen of it thus far).

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

The sword shield combo reminds me of Sophitia/Cassandra from Soul Calibur/Blade...or is that just me?

I kinda wish Lightning had a normal or neutral hair colour, she'd probably match half her wardrobe better (maybe that'll be a customization option? lawl).  But yeah, I'm digging the brave choice for a bright yellow polylight.

I might have to replay XIII/XIII-2 before February but that's kinda hard with my backlog of games.
