Lightning Returns With Chocobo Eater And Snow’s Restaurant Artwork

By Spencer . October 31, 2013 . 10:30am


Square Enix shared more artwork from Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The monster above is a Chocobo Eater and it looks like it doesn’t have legs like the Chocobo Eater in Final Fantasy X. Players can save a white chocobo in Lightning Returns from being lunch and then nurse the bird back to health.




More artwork below shows Snow’s soldiers… and restaurant called Banquet of the Lord. There’s a practical reason for this, you can restore Lightning’s hit points by eating at a restaurant.

  • God Chocobo Eater? *shakes head*

  • ElAbuelo69

    Snow looks so dumb…now he all almighty n stuff? Sheeeit.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      You’re telling me THIS looks dumb? You mean badass right..?

      • RichyGaming

        Yeah he looks retarded

        … …is a lie, because he looks like a boss

        • SaveTheDay

          He doesn’t “look like” a boss, he IS the boss.

        • revenent hell

          And it only took the third game to make him that way!
          Third times a charm and all…..

          No really im utterly thankful they re designed him to be less hatable looking here, I couldnt stand his look in the first game (which was a shame cause “Shiva” in any form is my favorite summon) and he was only slightly better in the second game thanks in large part to the loss of the stupid hat

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        A little of column A, a little of column B….

    • Screw ya gramps! Snow got SWAG now!

    • Chido55

      Well if you played the previous 2 games for which I did, Snow has gone through quite an ordeal for the sake of her beloved Serah.
      He took up the L’cie curse again on purpose on XIII-2, so that he had the power (again) to do something for Serah.

      In Lightning Returns, he had enough of this shit.
      by this, Serah still died and he put the blame on everything.

    That sign makes it look more like a gigolo club than a restaurant.

    • A host club run by Snow? Sign me up!

  • JustThisOne

    :> A drum! What’s it for, I wonder?

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      to summon Thunderier, Lightning’s long lost brother

      • zaidandzhadow


      • Judge Magister

        Don’t give Toriyama ideas! D:

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        Thunderier? I think you mean…..

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Man That thing looks like it came out of God eaters concept art.

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    “Banquet of the Lord”? Sounds like Snow knows serve to make a mean soul food dish!

    • Ferrick

      i don’t know, it looks like they only sell cold foods

  • Prinnydoom

    Restaurant? Looked more like a club in the gameplay. And chocobo eater is back he was a good boss ^___^ except for… know eating chocobos.

  • On topic though so I guess Snow turns out to be the ultimate villain because of what happened to Sarah

    What I’m wondering though is how did Snow find out

    • Ferrick

      noel or hope

  • Am I the only one who thought that this was some kind of cross over with God Eater?

    • RichyGaming

      A lot of us thought it. But a fiend like a Chocobo Eater honestly existed. Or at least I remember a fiend like that on Final Fantasy X. Not sure if any other games had it.

    The more I look at this game, the more I feel like this should have been the original atmosphere for XIII. Would have been much more memorable.
