The lights are on
Aerith Gainsborough (or Aeris if you prefer) will be making an appearance in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Or rather, her clothing will.
Among the many, many costumes available in Lightning Returns, Aerith's iconic pink dress and bouquet of flowers will be one of them. It's unclear exactly how to access the outfit. Cloud's outfit in Lightning Returns is a pre-order bonus.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11, 2014.

As a Final Fantasy fan who didn't get entirely hooked by FFXIII (I liked it but wasn't wow-ed) it feels like this is just taking advantage of fanboyism to get more sales for Lightning Returns. A LOT of people want an FFVII remake so "let's make that nostalgia ensure a few more sales for Lightning Returns!". I know it's all business but man... I would prefer if they just started working on getting that next epic FF that everyone is waiting for done... Maybe FFXV will deliver that.
Nice! I can't wait to try this game!
This one just made me smile....
Am I the only one that noticed that she was using a replica of Cloud's weapon? (Final Fantasy VII) 00:19
