Both E3 and Japan Expo brought news of an all-new crossover promotion between Final Fantasy XIV and Lightning Returns – both of which are scheduled to release in the near future and will be the last of Final Fantasy on current generation consoles. In addition to Lightning’s appearance in Eorzea – complete with matching character outfits and weapons from the XIII saga – it was revealed that a little bit of FFXIV would be making its way into Nova Chrysalia as well.
Back at E3, Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama unveiled a variety of new costumes for Lightning, including a FFXIV themed one featuring the garb and weapon set of a female Miqo’te. The outfit has since been detailed further in this week’s Famitsu, and promises a unique victory pose based on the “sexy” Miqo’te /pose emote that occurs in FFXIV. Additionally, Lightning will be able to don a Black Mage outfit that appears to be a sort of contrast to Serah’s White Mage garb from FFXIII-2.
