Square Enix has provided an extended look at Lightning's Cloud Strife costume in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.
This just seems like such a desperate attempt at getting sales. Don't get me wrong, I love me some fanservice like costumes and cameo easter egg type things..but this just comes off as desperate.
I have actually grown to somewhat like the XIII series, and even I agree with you. This just comes off as desperate. :\
...Not to mention the outfit has mistakes and the moves arent done right.....( FF7 is my favorite game so Im like OCD about this)
Notice how carefully and where the buttons on the suspenders are placed.
I know right...It's like a ten year old made those decisions...Ohh wait, Toriyama
Look up the Cloud outfit, the buttons are in the same place when Cloud is wearing the outfit too.
It's annoying, we've been screaming and pleading for YEARS for an HD remake and they just tease us with stuff like this? Why not just do a full character swap and make cloud himself playable in FF13 Lightning (Cloud) Returns?
So what you're saying is that pre-order incentives are an attempt to make the game sell? These bonuses are just for people who already considered getting the game and now are pushed for a pre-order. Someone who didn't like how the game looked wont buy this just because of a stupid outfit.
I just looked up a photo of the original outfit with Cloud in it and the buttons are in the same place on Cloud as well when he is in that outfit. This is just some cool fanservice and many people would say that fanservice itself is a bit desperate. I don't agree with that at all. The reality is that Toriyama made a decision to make Lightning's breast bigger. Maybe he just like big breasts and he cannot deny it, maybe he just wants the fact that she is a woman be more pronounced, maybe he wants to ogle her with his eyes, or maybe this is something he wanted to do from the start and decided against it until now. Either way it is his decision to make as the Creative Director and he has made it. This single minded focus on this one change is very lame. I like Lightning's character from FF13, FF13-2, and Dissidia 012. My biggest concern is that they will change what makes her core character what it is and so far from the cutscenes I have seen they haven't done that. Also, Lightning originally had about A cup breast by Western standards and now she has C cup breast by Western standards. Her boobs aren't flying all over the place. It's not that big of a deal, but for people to think that this game is going to be bad solely because Lightning's breasts are bigger is just silly.
too desperate ...nowdays games try to sell by presenting their eastereggs (an extra bonus element of a game not always obligatory to exist) not their quality just tragic..square seems that they r not doing so well and neither will re reach their former glory
was that dodge counter cross slash?
I like it. A lot! Love FF7, great nostalgia for that game.
That victory tune at the end brings back great memories I wish they could make FF games like they used to
i have the mix feeling after i watch this vid
It's disgusting that they do this. It bound to attract some sales.
