Dress FFXIII protagonist Lightning in a outfit made almost entirely of moogles

Japanese release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes with alluringly bizarre costume pack DLC.

by

DLC for the Japanese version of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII allows players to adorn protagonist Lightning with an outfit made almost entirely of moogles.

The game is now out in Japan, and Siliconera reports that the premium Lovable Moogle DLC comes with Moogle Queen outfit, Moogle stick weapon, and a Moogle shield.

Alongside the Loveable Moogle pack, Square Enix has also released the Holy Asgard and Ultimate Liberator costume packs. Costumes are sold individually for ¥400 (roughly $4) or the three can be purchased together for ¥1,000 (about $9.80).

Square Enix declined to comment when asked by GameSpot if these specific costume packs would make the US and Europe.

Square Enix previously announced in July that those who preorder Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII can outfit Lightning in FFVII protagonist Cloud Strife's iconic threads.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be released in the US and Europe in February 2014.

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?! I'm not sure whether this amuses me or makes me upset.

What an embarrassment that FF has gone from the PS1-era titles to this.

FFXIII was okay, but the pacing was terrible. I actually liked FFXIII-2 more, but the plot felt contrived.

The one constant was a good battle system that actually grew in complexity as the game continued. It seems like this one is going to be worse than the first 2.

So this is what FF has become now. Dropping of DLC here and there, plus it all going to the worst main character I can ever dream of. I remember I use to be excited for the next FF game but not anymore. Then some people wonder why FF is dying. Square is still trying to make their fantasy lover get so much attention with their DLC and by making her some kind of primary character of FF. When will they learn that nobody really give a what about Lightning. She is by far the worst main character I ever seen. Until I start seeing some real content the future of FF games isn't looking bright at all.

I don't plan on buying the game, but I approve of these shenanigans.

Only Bravely Default and KH3 can save this company now. Maybe FFXV, but I'm not getting my hopes anymore about that one.

Square Enix: We're still losing money because all of our studios in the EU and NA are not making quality content.


Yeah, speak for yourselves.

Now this is just getting stupid, Lightning is a character that takes no BS and rips enemy's apart yet now she wears this ?. This is worse than the Yuna costume (Doesnt fit her personality, exact opposites IMO). Having choices can be good but this looks terrible

I really don't like the fact that Final Fantasy is now milked with DLC crap.  Maybe I was naive or something, but I expected the Final Fantasy series to avoid this stuff.

The Japanese always get cool editions of games or DLC. Why does this stuff never make it to the States or Europe? I hope this stuff becomes more widespread with the new gen.

I like lightning one of my favourite FF characters but japanese  game designers seem to go through puberty very, very late. Was it really necessary to up her cleavage? Especially after tomb raider finally has less...

I can appreciate that the FFXIII universe has it's fans, and that the high sales made future FFs possible after the original XIV bombed (ARR is amazing, by the way...probably my favorite MMO), but I'm hoping Lightning Returns comes out quietly, pleases the fans quietly, and we can move on to new FF universes.

When can she get a skirt made out of belts?

You have to step up your game GS. IGN was all over this yesterday.


On topic, this is ridiculous. I actually like some outfits, but this one is stupid.

Instead of developing good RPGs, this is what they waste their resources on.

Who else thinks moogles are very stupid?
it looks like a doofid teletubbie, and can you explain to me in what way this enhance a game/gaming experience?

I hate DLC.

For some reason, not this one. I mean...It's a dress made of moogles.

Hopefully Im not a minority here, but I honestly found FF13(and the following installment FF13 part 2) to be some of the worst final fantasies ever made. What ever happened to airships, world maps and overly feminine protagonists(ok...maybe not that one lol) but you guys get the point

I guess I should be thankful that 3rd Birthday was what happened when Square Enix got their hands on Parasite Eve. I shudder at the thought if they tried to do a remake of the first Parasite Eve.

I wonder if those are just plushies or fabric, or real moogles that've been hunted down and taxidermied

Interesting choice of battle protection gear.  I am guess the opponent falls over laughing, hence this character can kill their nemesis while they are on the ground in a fit of laughter helpless and defenseless.  This could really work.

so guys most anticipated game for next year? for me Witcher 3:Wildhunt

@randomkidlol If the great 10 hour demo of Bravely Default is any indication, it just might be the most awesome thing SE has put out in almost a decade. It's exactly like an FF game

@bouchart Some skirts are the size of one belt, but I guess you could do a skirt out of several belts.

@xolivierx Its more of a final fantasy icon. They were cutesy in the early days of 7 8 and 9(even earlier actually just cant remember). So its more iconic than anything

@uncha1n3d i agree with you. i finshed 13...then tried 13-2 twice and just couldnt get into it. ill still try 13-3 but...im not expecting much and rolly wont get it for full price

LucentWolf

@uncha1n3d Naw, you're not alone, most of the people down there below you agree. I didn't mind 13, but I didn't like it enough to bother with the subsequent installments. I am interested in XV however.

@Stebsis I'd hope that they're still alive. That way she could command them all to flap their wings simultaneously giving her the ability to fly.

@pohman The Division, FF XV, and MGS V.

The order changes depending on the day... Speaking of The Order, looking forward to that too.

@pohman Gotta go with Monolith Soft's X if it just is releasing next year. From confirmed ones definitely Witcher 3.

@Hurvl @bouchart That was a reference to Lulu from Final Fantasy 10.  Until this DLC it was among the weirder outfits in the FF series.

@LucentWolf @uncha1n3d Yea that one looks pretty good. It will really come down to the substance of the main characters as well as an interesting plot. Im looking forward to it. Just seemed to me like square went down the toilet once the enix got tacked onto it. There have been some great games by them, I just havent been pulled into a final fantasy in years and its one of my favorite

@Stebsis from the creators of amazing xenoblade chronicles definitely worth keeping an eye on
