With Jump Festa 2013 right around the corner this week, two publications in Japan have some early details on what we’ll be seeing soon. One, particularly Jump, will be revealing Lightning’s brand new outfit as designed by Tetsuya Nomura. Those privvy to that early information described her outfit to consist of black armor, a cape, and a red and yellow sword and shield. In Famitsu, gameplay details include that Lightning’s abilities will differ based on height and you’ll be able to jump freely in the game’s different terrain. Monsters range in size and can be quite enormous.
As the week progresses expect to see more Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII details leading up to Jump Festa at the end of the week. Stay tuned to Final Fantasy Network as we bring you more!
