Here’s a new vid for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, showing off the various cosmetic customisation items on offer in the game.

“In the spirit of the high levels of customisation on offer in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, this video shows off just small portion of the costumes, weapons, shields and accessories featured in the game,” says the blurb. “There's a wealth of wardrobe choice - the final game will have over 80 costumes for Lightning!”

Square Enix adds that all the content shown in the vid is freely available in-game, with the exception of the already-announced Cloud Strife outfit from Final Fantasy VII.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is out on February 11th, 2014 in the US and February 14th, 2014 in Europe for current-gen systems.

I am playing FFXIII right now and I am having my ass handed to me by boss at the end of chapter 9!!! 20 hours or so in, and this guy want let me breathe. I take out his sides, but then real fun begins... Anyone has any ideas on how to beat him? At this rate I won't finish both games by end of next year lol Looking forward to this as well, but not before I beat previous games...

weirdly enough i played 13-2 before 13 and i have to say i am currently about 24-30 hours into the game and on chapter 11 at least last i checked and just got hopes eidolin.

and number 3 since u r fighting big bart i would recommend using lightning fang and either hope or vanille. Make sure you have different elemental types and that your crystarium is quite far in also make sure you have very well upgraded weapons such as hopes boomerang at star, lightning on the gladius at least level 10 and fang at bladed lance star as this is what i used. Whenever you first start the battle you should use a librascope to see what each part is especially weak against then exploit it.

Now whenever you get onto the main part after taking out the sides you should still have a good amount of health and still be able to call forth odin. You should make fang use her sentinal abilities to draw barts fire torwards her while light and hope/vanille heal her and the group. whenever bart is focused on fang it means that it is time to change to a sentinal/ravager/healer combo to fight. If and when hope/vanille and fang both die you should call odin and leave his gestalt form for just before he disappears this way you can do a ton of damage and when out of gestalt bart should be well weakened and your team fully restored so just hammer him while remembering to stay healed and you should have no trouble with this fight.

anyway i think i shall use lightnings ff13 costume in lightning returns as i have always liked that outfit.

#3 Haha I remember the boss right before the final boss could just cast death and kill you instantly. Not doom just straight up death.

Looks like they're doing a bit of a FFXIV crossover in as well. At :32 she's wearing the Miqo'te Racial Clothing.

And @3. The end bosses are a lot easier if you have a character that can caste Haste. The character that can cast it the soonest is Hope. That would be your best bet.

I know this isnt really the place to say this but.

Use debuffs and poison on em. Then use defense and your all good

Do the different costumes actually *do* anything (are they different armours with different stats/buffs and whatnot), or are they purely cosmetic? If it's the latter, what's the point?

For a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series who for the first time has no interest in playing one of your sequels.. this is not the way to win me over. And i'm sure i'm not alone.

Tristan. I agree that Francisco`s stori is surprising, on monday I got a new Saab 99 Turbo since getting a cheque for $9386 this past 5 weeks and more than ten-grand lass month. it's definitly the most financialy rewarding Ive ever had. I actually started 10-months ago and pretty much immediately startad making over $85 per-hr. I work through this website,

I love me some Final Fantasy, don't get me wrong, but this video does it no justice whatsoever. It doesn't make me want to buy it.

These different costumes better have varying qualities/stats or whatever. I have no interest in stocking and shifting Lightning's wardrobe just for the sake of it.

And there better not be any achievement/trophy linked to them either. Sod that. ¬_¬

@9 They are doing a crossover close to the release of the game players in FFXIV will be able to obtain Lightnings outfit from XIII.

On topic i like the fact i can get lights FFXIII-2 outfit and if i can will stick to using that one most likely.

I would have prefered the Cloud DLC to be his AC outfit.

That or Tifa's AC or Vincent's.

@3 Have Vanille learn Death. It has a chance of oneshotting any enemy, even the giant turtles. If you summon Vanille's Eidolyn and use its main gun, it'll knock the turtles so they can't get up for a while.

This is what is called "Turtle Grinding." I did it ... a lot.

And the Orphan fight wasn't even that hard compared to the Barthandelus fights.
