Sazh Returns in Lightning Returns

August 19th, 2013 by Tony Garsow


Airship pilot Sazh Katzroy will return to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, as will the original cast of Final Fantasy XIII. In the newest issue of VJump, we get our first look at his appearance as well as more information about the Wildlands — a vast expanse that includes forested areas and a grassland. Lightning’s Scene Drive (Army of One) ability is also mentioned, and can be used by consuming EP (Energy Points). This resource is gradually recovered post battle depending on your performance.

Other notable Final Fantasy XIII characters will return in this game — Hope has taken himself up in the Ark and gives Lightning quests to save humanity and restore light to Yggdrasil. Snow is the leader of Yusnaan and l’Cie to a fal’Cie that keeps his town running in the final days before the end of the world. Fang is the leader of Monoculus, a band of desert theives that scour ruins in search of relics to pilfer. Vanille has been loosely mentioned with the Salvation Council, a group clad in white working against Lightning in Luxerion.

Update: Sazh’s son Dajh has been asleep for five-hundred years – the span of time between Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns. This has taken a heavy toll on his father, whose “heart has closed” — sealing away his typically cheerful, talkative personality.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII releases on November 21st in Japan, Feburary 11th in North America, and February 14th in Europe. Available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, you can pre-order the game now to receive a SOLDIER outfit and Buster Sword for use in-game.

Update: A new outfit also appears in this week’s issue – the “Heart Stealer”.

    Well, this is very interesting

  • AnimaMagna

    Well, that’s the old gang all brought back apart from Serah (wonder what Sazh’s stance concerning Lightning will be?). Now, where are Caius and Yeul?

  • Odine

    Will they keep something hidden of this game? I’m tired of unnecessary content spoilers.

  • alexsam

    @Odine I’m right with u good sir. We now know exactly where we will meet all the main-line characters. We will go into all the new areas thinking “Oh ok, this is where I meet Snow, or Sazh, or whoever”. One of the best things about the old FF was that everything was a shocking surprise in those games. I didn’t want to know most of these things about the game but because of my social media profiles, I unfortunately do…

  • AnimaMagna

    @Odine, alexsam
    I for one have been glad of the updates. They’ve been relieving the niggling feeling about what’s happened to the characters, or whether they’ll appear. But then, I’m the sort that can know the plot of a film beforehand, or glance at the end of a book, and I still get the full kick out of watching or reading the whole thing.

    PS: that outfit looks so FFVI Amano-come-Itahana, don’t you think? Like “Hey, Locke, step aside. Lightning’s in town”. Glorious.

  • Xrisato

    I may have came…

  • rusty

    yeah.I’m gonna have to stop coming to game sites because I want SOME parts of the game to remain a damn secret. But GODDAMN I hate that newest dressphere
