Lightning Returns official ‘Dead Dunes’ description and shop screenshots By Ehren Rivers on March 19, 2013 at 2:33 AM

The Lightning Returns website updated today with a few new screenshots in addition to the Dead Dunes stuff we got to see the other evening. The official description of the Dead Dunes has been added as well, and it looks there’s a bit more information in there than we originally got from the magazine. It’s not much, but hopefully it should tide you all over until we manage to get some more!


  • The Dead Dunes: A lifeless desert within which rests a holy relic.

    This region is covered with endless desert sands as far as the eye can see. Within it can be found the shanties which form a base for treasure hunters seeking their fortune in the arid wilderness, as well as ancient ruins said to conceal a divine treasure. Many monsters with a character unique to the area appear in this region, such as the sand swimming fiends of the open desert and the undead horrors that lurk within the ruins.

There are also, as mentioned above, screenshots of the shops. For some reason the English websites lists it as ‘Trading’, but rest assured you have money to throw around and are not limited to trading items for abilities. The two NPCs shown appear to be the same guy though, so it’s possible that they’re still placeholders. The Item Shop looks like it’s in Luxerion for sure, but the Spell Shop shown could either be there or in the little town at the Dead Dunes Oasis.
