Many characters from the Final Fantasy XIII series will be coming back in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (with the NORA being an exception). One of the more surprising returns we’ll be seeing is that of Cid Raines, whose return in this game might baffle you if you’ve played Final Fantasy XIII.
This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shares a glimpse of the general, along with a tidbit of information on what he’ll be up to in the third installment of the series.
In the magazine report, Cid is quoted as saying: “It’s not god. What’s moving me is the countless thoughts of the dead. I am the representative of the dead.”
The above image also shows him saying “You should know very well whose soul you must find,” which we can assume he’s saying to none other than Lightning.
If you’d like to refresh your memories on Cid and other events, you can check out our earlier post that summarizes Final Fantasy XIII.
Additionally, this week’s Jump magazine shows us a look at Serah in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, who’s shown saying, “I’ll discard the faulty memories, and once again go back to living the good days with my sister, in the new world.”
While details on how Cid and Serah will be returning are scarce, it appears as though they will be appearing in some form of spiritual essence.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes out next week in Japan, and February 2014 in the west, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
