A Closer Look At The Miqo’te Costume In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII


As previously reported, one of Lightning’s outfits in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is based on the Miqo’te race from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. We’ve only seen the costume in magazines up until now, but today, Square Enix shared a clearer image and screenshot via the game’s official website:



As detailed last night, putting the costume on will give Lightning a battle victory pose and sound effects from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Meanwhile, the Cloud Strife outfit based on Final Fantasy VII will do the same. We expect the same will be true of the Yuna costume from Final Fantasy X that Square Enix teased, too.
