Kitase & Toriyama hint a "Cloud" Costume for Lightning

Last week FFDream.com and Finaland had the pleasure of meeting for an exclusive interview of Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama producers of Lightning Returns: FF XIII.

"FFDream: Cloud and Zack are the two best male characters of the FFDream Awards. Can you imagine a suit of SOLDIER first class, black or purple, for Lightning in DLC ?
(They gave two drawings of Light' in 1st Class)

Yoshinori Kitase: As you know, Final Fantasy has already offered a lot of alternative costumes, such as the black mage or white mage that have been successful. First you need to consider whether other elements of Final Fantasy are also popular with the public, we still thinking what kind of offer DLC for Lightning Returns. But if there is a strong demand for fans, we will consider the question.
Motomu Toriyama: You said that Cloud and Zack are the most popular is it?

FFDream: Yes, these are the two boys who had the most votes. Girls on Yuna, Lightning and Tifa are in mind.

These retards at SE, no one cares about this game but the small minority that can't seem to let the saga go. Leave FF7 universe alone.

That is interesting, it's just a shame that Lightning isn't.
FFDreaman  +   741d ago
Totally true ! But I think that Ligh' will be more interesting in this episode !

The problem is that fans aren't interested in Lightning. She is one of the most boring characters in FF, and the fact that Square treats her like something they have to push through your eyes to make you like it, doesn't help either. And now they go as far as trying to give her a costume to mimic an iconic character of the franchise (Cloud have a bit of cliché, but no one can deny his merit, nor FF7's).
They could have made it with the best intentions, but fans are feed up of Lightning. SE wants to make her a popular character by force.

They are really desperate like....yeah lets make Cloud a costume so they will bring in more money...I mean audiences

Anyway yeah Lightning is bland, boring and is so annoying...the only reason she stood out in FF13 is because she was surrounded by characters worse then her.

She isn't interesting and she never will be

Seriously the only people who like her are the ones who want to have sex with her or girl gamers who think she's cool because she's a MAIN female character in a FF game

Its actually pretty smart. Cloud is popular and a costume would just give them more $$$.

A Cloud costume? either remake FF7 or just leave it alone ffs
FFDreaman  +   741d ago
I think it can be interesting for fans ! :)
LightofDarkness  +   740d ago
Why, that's as good as a remake! Bet you feel silly now, eh entitled FF fans?

I hope they charge $20 for it, because that's what it's obviously worth, it'd be like playing FFVII all over again, I'd pay at least $20 on top of the price of admission for that.

Yes. That is sarcasm.

they hope lightning will become the favourite female character lol not whilst tifa and Yuna exist.
Kratoscar2008  +   740d ago
Regrettably SE marketing bombing has put Lightning over them according to some JP polls, those Japaneses are really gullible.
Feralkitsune  +   740d ago
Funny I see neither of them as favorites. Garnet, Yuna, even Yuffie seem like better characters to me.
Skate-AK  +   740d ago
I have no problem with XIII and XIII-2 but this game just looks meh.
ShinFuYux  +   740d ago
And I thought it was Akira Toriyama

You're really funny ! :)
