The lights are on
Lightning is no stranger to recalling previous Final Fantasy outfits from her impressive closet, and it looks like she will be pulling out another.
So far we've seen Cloud and Aerith's clothing from Final Fantasy VII as well as Yuna's outfit from Final Fantasy X being worn by Lighting for the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. A new video showcasing the Chinese version of Lightning Returns shows Lightning wearing Yuna's outfit from Final Fantasy X's sequel – another Final Fantasy games where outfits played an important tactical and aesthetic role.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11. Head to the 3:37 mark in the video below to see Yuna's Final Fantasy X-2 outfit in action.

I think it's neat that several great characters from previous Final Fantasy games are being referenced in Lighting Returns. ^_^
Chinese version? Didn't they JUST lift their 10 year console ban? Well, glad to see Square immediately support that market :) Here's hoping that Chinese gamers dig buying new games legally as much as they do picking them up on the "gray market".
If they're as good to video games as they are to movies, than they should end up being the second biggest market for this sector of the entertainment industry behind North America. Thanks again, China, for ensuring we'll all get a Pacific Rim 2. United States; you really let me down there. *shakes head*
Any interest I might have had for this game is gone. They are definitely targeting a different audience with this dress up game.
At least they know where to focus, making Light doing cosplay, cause it sure isn't in the game play.
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU!
Those games are chessy as f***, makes sense Lightning wearing Yuna's X-2 costume since this game seems to be focused on changing clothes just like X-2 was.
