Lightning Return alongside with Snow in a new commercial for the Nissan Kicks in China, inspired by Final Fantasy XIII.
They should've gotten the FFXV cast to do this, especially since a car plays a big part in that game already
No way, Lightning and Snow are definitely the NEXT most popular FF characters of all time to pull this off. /s
I'd say LIghtning and Snow are probably more popular than Noctis and Cindy. For a while, Lightning was actually rated as the most popular FF female in Japan. Despite the hate that surrounds the game, there are tons of people who actually enjoy it, and I do think the game had a good sense of style that people could get behind. Bland character presentation aside, there were a lot of people who liked them.
There's car brand connected to FFXV already, Audi.
Lightning is actually an extremely popular character in the East. So it makes sense that she would be in the commercial. I am not sure why Snow is there, Noctis would have been the better choice for that situation but I guess they just wanted to keep with the FF13 theme.
ff15 characters were so gay it almost makes me throw up by looking at them....
A FFXIII trilogy remaster will probably show up some time this year.
Oh please don't even joke about it.
You know they are releasing a remaster trilogy right?
I'm hoping for that but personally for me the only game I would play is the first the last 2 I wouldn't bother.
FF13 was way better than crap 15
Story - Nope Storytelling - Yes Characters - Aw hell no Gameplay (not just combat) - No Music - No
I never lie.
In favour of FF13 over FF15. Story - Yes Storytelling - Yes Characters - Yes Gameplay - Equal Music Yes Story actually had a continuous direction! There was a sense of journey, it also had a far more interesting cast of characters, sure some were annoying like Hope and Vanille, but the way the story branched off with different groups as you explored throughout the game, until eventually reaching Pulse was a far better experience than FF15's. Also, people cry it was all corridors and linear gameplay, sure it had 'tunnels' but most of the old highly rated games in the past FF's have been very similar, the environments were beautiful, and the music equally so. FF15 had a better main villain that's about it, and the overall original lore of the game was better but the execution was shit, they cut too much out of the game. Also, when you reach Oerba in FF13 it has a huge impact after the story and journey to that point. what did ff15 do? Killed off luna with no character depth to her, noct handed over a picture to his so called best friends before he essentially went to die and they didn't give a damn, and prompt said he was created by the empire or w/e and nothing more was said, no big deal bro! Storytelling in 15 was absolutely awful, a disgrace to the FF franchise actually. Just a few links to some great FF13 music. And each of these songs I can remember the locations being so well designed they looked crazy in comparison to even FF15's huge open world of same old styles. Don't get me wrong, 15 looked insane and had great locations, just overall it isn't better. Find me as many 15 songs that have as much value as any of these... and don't troll me with linking its music player songs from ff13! lol https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... I could go on forever tbh but I got bored lmao, well done if you read all this. FF13 is better, don't argue with me lmao!
The first FF game on Xbox and the start of the downfall of the franchise? Of course you would say that lol. I never touched FXV but such is the powerful suckage of FXIII that caused that.
Just can't do 13. I've tried multiple times to get into but it's just awful. 15 is certainly rough in some parts but gameplay is fun and interacting with the world is great. Story could have been so much better.
Noctis would get owned by Lightning
What did you find so bad about 13?
Just didn't find it fun to play and I didn't like the characters.
I agree with you, but people have so much hate for FF13 because it was linear in the beginning. Meanwhile, FF15 is open in the beginning and then linear as heck later on. People prefer their illusions to the truth, so there isn't much you can do about it. Also, yeah Lighting would crush Noctis. There she is off defying gods and Noctis is bending his knees to destiny. It wouldn't even be a contest.
My problem is that FF15 is simply too wide open from the beginning. I absolutely hate the janky combat. The all male party blows. The car driving sucks. The music is good though. And FF15 in HDR looks incredible
Agreed! I was thinking the same thing! Lightning was a badass character & she would mop the floor with simpleton Noctis.
Meh, at least Noctis has a better game lol
Don't say that you'll cause a uproar..lol. Personally I like them both though both have their flaws.
I actually agree. Biggest problem with FFXIII was the piss poor presentation of the story, which they didn't remedy with FFXV....which was actually much worse. Characters just had bland presentation in FFXIII but outside a couple of them were not that boring, whereas they were just plain bland in FFXV. Game play I think was better in FFXV, but FFXIII wasn't actually that bad overall in this regard outside the repetative trash stuff where it was not even worth bothering with the more detailed stuff.
it may not be popular here, but FFXIII characters are quite popular elsewhere. Specifically Lightning. I don't really like most of the characters in FFXIII (especially Hope...just no). Lightning has been used before to model handbags and clothing lines I believe. As for the commercial i would have preferred to see a Naked Raiden driving a Nissan Rogue lol. Make it happen Japan please xD
No my eyes my eyes! 😎
Time to sell your Nissan stocks. Sales are most definitely going to take a dive now. God damn, they look like s**t too. LOL
Why would they take a dive?
If anything FF13 has been extremely successful in terms of sales and brand strength. Especially outside of the EU/NA characters like Lightning are very popular.
Here comes the hate from the hive-minds, and probably from people who never played it. I played 13 a few years back and gotta say it was heavily flawed, The only good aspect for me at least, was the music. Just this past week I completed lightning returns and i gotta say WOW!. Overall it's a good game, certainly the best oft the 3. It was interesting enough to keep me going till the end. For those who complained about lightnings b!!hy attitude,Lightning returns does a very good job of explaining why she is how she is. The story certainly is memorable, for me at least. I felt more forgiving towards the trilogy overall. Give Lightning returns a shot ( I mean bare through till the end). Surely you might change how you feel regarding 13.
FF 13 is one of my least favorite on the franchise, I certainly like it FF 15 a lot more, but to each is own. On topic, Nissan?! Really? Considering I don't even gonna buy something Nissan related anytime, this doesn't change my perception about the car's brand and the game itself.
Nissan makes pretty good cars.
Yeah the hate for the game is really there but that's by a few folks on certain sites,imo I think among all that bought & actually played the entire game until the credits rolled it's a 50/50 love/hate for the game.I see you like Lightning Returns better where I'm totally the opposite I think the original out of the 3 is the best but like they say...To each their own.
I thought the game play of LR was great. Best in the trilogy to be honest. Depsite making it an ARPG, it was fun to play. The story though was just plain horrendous. It was convoluted to the point of making no sense, and completely disregarded all the lore of the other two games....which they already stretched thin in the 2nd game. Any conclusion they hoped to achieve with all the other characters in the series failed miserably, as all of them were completely morose and terribly presented, and at no point did they have any actual impact on the story. Some of the side stuff was alright because it was geared around the game play itself, but the main story was terrible. I never found LR to be that memorable. It had no reason to actually be connected to the first two games. It gave no reason why she became a goddess. It did nothing to explain why she was the way she was. It gave no reason why suddenly everyone was just waiting for time to end other than that's the way it was. The antagonist made no sense other than to just be there to have an antagonist, much like the first two games. While LR was actually the most fun of the three games, the other games were still better on the story front. The first game did a terrible job at presenting that as well as the characters, and the 2nd one only did better because it was more focused and had less of the lore wrapped up around it.
I found the story in LR more interesting and easier to follow than the 1st game. I thought they presented the characters objectives well. It's emphasis was more on concluding the trilogy and the story, overall i think they nailed that part. I haven't played xiii-2 so i cant comment there. As stated above to each their own. I played xiii so LR was a huuge improvement from the first imo..
I guess her reasons for doing what she was doing was clear enough, but there was no explanation of why she had that reason in the first place. Nothing in the lore, nothing in the overall ethos of the series. It's like they just created a new story and lore that could serve the game play instead of fitting it into the series as it was. They resolved things that didn't need to be resolved, because they just made up new story elements for the other characters that suddenly needed a reason to be resolved.
Let XIII die already....
FF 1 greater than these 2 noob games. Back when games were for realz.
Though FFXV is the latest installment in the FF games Nissan in the East decided to go with FFXIII using Lightning & Snow.No matter what hate the game gets from some folks here in the West Lightning & gang still have a fan following.
So, not so much about selling a FF game but rather selling the ideal of the FF franchise.
Uhhh... Okay? At least it wasn't Konami getting Colonel and Snake to sell Fords.
Welp Toriyama gotta find a way to make cash so it makes sense he used his waifu.
