Hope Returns in Lightning Returns

July 2nd, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Lightning talks with Hope.

Hope Estheim will return in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, as we’ve known for some time in various trailers and media release. But up until now he had yet to see his face or know exactly where he is as he assists Lightning in her journey. Via Famitsu, we learn that Hope is now holed up in an Ark within Bhunivelze, the Coocoon-like replacement he had built during over the expanse of Final Fantasy XIII-2’s timeline.

Strangely, Hope resembles his Final Fantasy XIII design more than his XIII-2 version, aside from his scarf having a different color and pattern. Hope will give Lightning a chance to restock her supplies and recover for the day ahead, and it’s a place where you can “take a breather” from the events in Nova Chrysalia.

Every day at 6:00am, Lightning can receive quests from Hope that will extend the time left before Doomsday. Lightning starts out the game with seven days left, but can increase that to a maximum of thirteen through her deeds. This also restores power to Yggdrasil, a “holy tree of life” which gives the world more time left before the end. Clear more quests from Hope and the brighter/stronger Yggdrassil will become.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII releases on November 21st 2013 in Japan, February 11th in North America, and February 14th in Europe. It will be available physically or digitally for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    WTF! Well, was not expecting that at all. I really hope there’s an explanation for this and we get to see his adult form as well.

  • MarTiph

    Im the only one who prefer this version than XIII-2 ??

  • Shadowcatdoll09

    @MarTiph no I agree with you I like his FFXIII self better.

  • Bekas

    Considering that they said paradox endings would be present one way or another, could this be some sort of Augusta Tower kind of situation? Like, Hope can’t be there physically, either because he is trapped or even cos he died somewhere along the 500 years since XIII-2 and LR, and this is an AI he left behind?

    I just find it very strange how this is XIII model, with only a different scarf. Really weird indeed.

  • AgitoXIII

    Good, make Hope the NPC he should have always been anyway.

  • Frankie MacDonald

    Is Hope going to turn into an adult form in the end of LR FFXIII and he is a little kid again.
