Jump magazine has more information about Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The magazine introduced Lumina who looks like Serah, but with a little bit of a gothic lolita style. Lumina appears to know where Lightning is headed. Sometimes Lumina helps Lightning, but other times Lumina gets in Lightning’s way. Lumina kind of views Lightning like a toy.
Lightning will have new abilities and magic spells in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It seems like there is some kind of guard and evasion system in the game too. Players will be able to take side quests posted on a bulletin board and clearing these might extend the time the world survives.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII gives Lightning a new costume. Don’t like it? You can change her look by obtaining different "wear." There are three kinds of wear in a set and you can equip wear in battle. Two costumes were revealed too. The Dark Muse outfit gives Lighting a camouflage jacket, knife, and a lattice style shield. The Lonely Soul in a Sandstorm costume is kind of like samurai armor.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is slated for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year.
