Cloud Strife Outfit Coming to Lightning Returns

July 2nd, 2013 by Tony Garsow

For fans who pre-order Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, you’ll be able to receive Cloud Strife’s SOLDIER uniform and Buster Sword as wearable outfit items for Lightning. Not only that, but they’ll include specific abilities (to be announced later), and a special victory pose. The victory jingle will also transform into the Final Fantasy VII rendition of the classic theme as seen in the video above. An additional outfit (of three newly revealed ones) will be offered for purchasing the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Original Soundtrack for the Japanese — the “Battle Flower”.

Square Enix also released our first images of Hope Estheim, who curiously looks exactly as he did in the original Final Fantasy XIII. Hope will assist Lightning by providing her with quests to save people throughout her journey. You can read more about that by clicking here: here.

Retailer Amazon has the game available for pre-order with gift here.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will release on November 21st 2013 in Japan, February 11th in North America, and February 14th in Europe. You’ll be able to pick it up physically or digitially for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    This game is gonna rock! Also, did anyone see, near the end of the trailer when Lightning had felled the Cactaur… It turned to crystal. Remind you of anything from XIII-2? I am a little surprised about Hope, but it looks like Lightning won’t have to battle him to free him from a burden, which should be nice compared with the rest of her former allies.

  • Odine

    I’m not friend of DLC outfits (specially the payable dlcs), but this one rocks!

    Also I like the samurai one, but I doubt we will be getting the same offer (gift for buying the OST) as japan here in the outer world…

  • alexsam

    Also not a fan of the DLC outfits, plus from what they said at E3 I’ll be getting both XIII and XIII-2 outfits from the beginning so I guess that’s enough. I had enough of the SOLDIER uniform in Crisis Core. I am also very curious about Hope. Why is he young again? I hope (no pun intended) we get some sort of new trailer or info on him by the end of the week, because of the Japan Expo.

  • MarTiph

    The old music, the suit and the weapon are really good gifts for this game !!

  • anony

    This is getting crazy, first yuna costume, now cloud ouift, what’s next lightning wearing sora gear from kh.

  • Animax

    Wait so you can actually change her costume out of battle? Cool! I thought it was only gonna be like X-2 where the costumes applies in battle. So any screen shots of Yuna’s outfit? Can’t wait to see which abilities come with that!

  • UndeadNecroMage

    Well, I can’t really say visible suspenders ever looked good, but on a character like Lightning who’s appearance has fussed over quite a bit since her conception, Cloud’s outfit doesn’t look too good.
    She was pretty much a female Cloud, anyway. While this costume does increase my interest in getting this game, redundant is redundant.
    And because I can resist no longer …
    Cloud + Lightning = Thunnnn-duh-GAH!
    Sorry.

  • hutch

    Tell me Lightning is not derivative of Cloud now.

    Is this Square’s version of wrapping bad food in bacon to make it better?
