Yuna’s Final Fantasy X-2 Costume Is Coming To Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

By Ishaan . December 6, 2013 . 9:30am


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has a costume based on Yuna from Final Fantasy X, but a video of the Chinese version of the game uploaded to YouTube shows Lightning donning Yuna’s Gunner outfit from Final Fantasy X-2 as well. You can catch this at the 3:37 mark in the video below. (Thanks, Game Jouhou)



Square Enix will probably announce the second Yuna costume as DLC for Lightning Returns in the near future. We’ll keep our eyes open for more news.

    Was kind of expecting it to be a bonus for having FFX/X-2 save data, but cool that it’s already unlockable.

  • idrawrobots

    I am not really feeling that sexy pose from Lightning.

    • It’s a forced smile. It shows. I’m sure even the Artist/Modeler/????? knows it.

      • idrawrobots

        She is far sexier when she is being a bad ass, like on the game’s cover.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          The great for your cause there’s plenty of badass outfits to choose from

    • EinMugenTenshin

      Let us face it lads, Lightning is not cut out for the modeling industry.

  • Jaeger Knighty


    • Godmars

      What? Square’s fan-service ride?

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Nope the ride to fun ville

    • natchu96

      Your avatar brings back even more depressing memories now (who knew immortality can get people killed so much), but I concur.

  • riceisnice

    It’s actually explained in FFXIV where Lightning got the Mi’qote costume.

    • Time Sage

      Yep, a Miqo’te reporter gifted it to her as a thank you for takeing time to be interviewed.

  • dmysta3000

    So to clarify, Yuna’s FFX costume will be a cross-save/promotion thing with X/X-2 HD, while this will be normal DLC correct?

  • LastFootnote

    Good lord. We get it, alright? We get it. Lightning Returns has a bunch of costumes based on Final Fantasy games past. Is it really news every time Square Enix reveals a new one?

    Granted, a similar thing happens as new Pokémon are revealed, which I mind less. That being said, just as I could go to Serebii for that info, I’m sure there are FF fan sites where this kind of thing warrants a blog post. It feels weird on a general gaming site like this one.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      “Only show what I approve of!”

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Actually i saw this costume on the wiki, it just needed a trailer. Plus this is a gaming news site you didn’t have to click on this

    • FlyingPony

      What the problem with having old school Final Fantasy? This is far better than sticking at one costume forever, as long as you’re playing that game..

      This is also great for old time FF fans, now they get to see and use the costume that they like so much in past, now, in HD.

  • Sardorim

    Could use DLC to give you more reason to do a NG+.

    • FlyingPony

      Good choice.

  • Masa

    let the dlc costume miling service begin

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Those tightass hot pants in HD?

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    That’s not even the correct weapon. She should use guns instead.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      She only uses swords and shields

  • AndreasStalin

    Vow! this game and its DLC is going to cost me.

  • echokanon

    Not long until more of the other past ff female (+male) costumes comes in and milk money

  • Chris Cruz

    * facepalm *

  • Ronldbx6

    Nice, but it will always look hotter on Yuna.

  • sharpshot909

    They should rename “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” to “Lightning Returns: Fanservice Fantasy XIII”.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      This game has 4 fan service costumes out the billion of non fanservice outfits that’s one too ,many

      • sharpshot909

        But these costumes completely ruin her character.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          Yes because her personality changes outside of the win poses uhuh.

          • Tienron

            it does ruin her character but it’s a game and for game play mechanics so…i dunno what sqaure were thinking but i guess they thought people would like it and some do…. but meh

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            It doesn’t ruin her character at all and their are plenty costumes that you can use besides these if you feel uncomfortable with them

          • Kelohmello

            It’s kind of absurd to see a normally cool, no-nonsense character dressing up cat ears and a tail. It may not affect her story-wise but it’s certainly reasonable to understand why people don’t like it.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            It reasonable to understand why someone might not like the costume but it’s also reasonable understand that some people don’t get why others never seem to understand what purely aesthetic means.
            That and the costume is completely optional and their are plenty of other costumes to choose from. Complaining about one as if it takes up the whole game is completely unreasonable

          • Guest

            True that, and rather take the DLC costume as something you definitely have to wear (although I can’t understand how these people’s mind work, nobody is forcing them to buy or to use it), think it as a parody or a gag, or a joke from the developer.

            Taking it seriously is like taking a Scream parody scene in Scary Movie as canon in the Scream franchise. Or thinking the guy in Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball (Chatroulette Version) as the real Miley Cyrus..

          • Tienron

            yes but it does, because no one see’s lighting as a final fashion character if she was to appear in dissdia they would most likely implement this as her new battle style( in theory) and lighting as a person is not a character used to changing clothes i would of been ok if Sarah had it but not lighting. but it’s not like her changing costumes is apart of the story…..well i hope not.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            No it doesn’t as stated a million times
            Her personality doesn’t change so it really does not matter

          • Tienron

            it’s not about her personality it’s about her dressing, end of and i just think the clothing systems donst suit her

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            I think those fast paced combos suit her just fine

          • Tienron

            she could combo WITHOUT the dress change… im done XD

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            The dress change makes the combo fun since it adds a nice layer of gameplay that’s easy to get into

  • Michael Connell

    Give her Agrias’, Freya’s or Beatrix’s outfit and I’d get that, especially since those would make a bit more sense considering Lightning’s fighting style.

  • Kyle Fedora

    I’d much prefer Paine’s costume.

    Also Tifa’s, breast implants included.

    • ffboi7

      I’ll put $100 down for those implants! lol

  • Xerain

    At this rate I’m surprised there’s no Lara Croft Costume. Maybe they’ll save that for the western release?

  • Effy Zoey Croft

    Wonder which outfits will be next? I can see us getting Tifa’s Original & AC outfits. Maybe Paine & Rikku’s around the time the game is due for release. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her get a Gilgamesh outfit. Seeing that she has Tidus’s sword with the gunner, will she have a special Tidus like pose with the FFX-2 win pose music?

  • Martian Wong

    I will enjoy this costume in FFX/X2 HD.

  • Kamille

    oh nice, now we can have a better look at Lightning’s pale skinny legs…

  • LBattle0819

    Wow had no idea Chinese sounded so different from Japanese

  • Chido55

    I shall peacefully wait for Squall’s outfit.


    So, what costume ISN’T going to be in Lightning Returns?

    • Androu1

      Birthday Suit :P

      • MVRK HNTR

        Haha, touche!

    • FlyingPony

      Ronald Mcdonald’s costumes.. Although deep down I really want this to happen.

  • Jonas Bern

    that just look so wrong.

  • Ric Vazquez

    At least it’s a costume that makes her look more femenine

  • Vash bane

    sigh you know I said on a forum “what if lighting had yuna’s outfit from X-2 wouldn’t that be cool to have both?”

    then I see this?….I am laughing so hard right now. since I was using it as a joke XD
