Catgirl Outfit? Yep, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Has One


As you’ve probably heard by now, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII allows you to outfit Lightning with different costumes, each one with its own special abilities and stats. One of these is a catgirl outfit.


Well, in a sense. The costume above is from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Producer Yoshinori Kitase took the race-specific-gear of that game’s cat-like Miqo’te race, and had it tossed into Lightning Returns without even asking the permission of FFXIV producer Naoki Yoshida.


Luckily, Yoshida didn’t mind and is now trying to find something from Lightning Returns that can be included in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
