This past weekend, Producer Yoshinori Kitase revealed that Lightning from Final Fantasy 13 will be the first Ultimate Hero in the new Mobius Final Fantasy game. While some may have been wanting Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 to be that hero, it’s obvious now what direction the producers went with. Lightnings addition will give players a chance to explore new storylines for Final Fantasy 13, along with other improvements and gameplay enhancements. Here are some of those features:
- A system that refreshes battle: The new “Lightning Resurrection” region introduces a unique battle system where players unlock paradigms to gain powerful effects in battle.
- Hope and Snow, the New Legend Job Summons: Players will get the chance to obtain Hope (“Hope’s Guide”) and Snow (“Unbroken Hero”). Players who successfully summon these characters will also receive a Lightning-themed companion spirit.
- New In-Game Bonuses – Players can obtain 16 gifts including a warrior weapon, “Blazefire Saber,” an exclusive Lightning ability card and a Lightning emoticon stamp by simply logging-in to the game.
This event kicks off TODAY and on the 15th of this month Snow and Hope will replace Lightning and Noel as the available legend job cards! Check out the trailer above!
