The lights are on
Lightning’s wardrobe continues to expand. We know she’ll have access to costumes from Final Fantasy VII and X, but now Square Enix is reaching into another one of its games.
A new trailer shows off Lightning sporting Lara Croft’s costume, climbing axe, and a riot shield from 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot. Unfortunately for Lightning, that also includes Lara’s layer of dirt.
You can read a review of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII in the latest issue of Game Informer (available now for digital subscribers). The title arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11. The DLC will be available for download at launch, though no price is listed. Square Enix confirms that there will be a cost associated with this DLC.
I think some people aren't quite realizing that you change classes in this game by changing outfits. Basically, every time they announce an outfit they're also announcing a new class.
I'm not big on the costume because I don't like the new Tom Braider and find a meh character's costume on a bad character does not magically create a good character.
On the same topic, I'm not sure what this class would actually do. Tactical whimpering action? Okay parkour? She's using the fire axe and a riot shield (I never found that weapon in Tom Braider), so does that mean every strike will be sloppy and every enemy will go down in two or three hits before enabling her to do a finisher?
Now have Lara wear Lightning's outfit :D
I like it.
