Square-Enix is sparing no time slacking off. They’re really pushing aggressively on marketing their newest flagship titles, namely Final Fantasy XIV ~A Realm Reborn~, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and of course, their holiday season offering Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. As of today, they officially launched the “Final Fantasy Go There” Campaign, which is basically a cross-collaboration between these three Final Fantasy games.
They began by introducing Lightning to the world of Eorzea in FFXIV ~A Realm Reborn~. She will be appearing as a guest character in a series of side-quests (FATE Events, specifically) where you will gain rewards such as Lightning and Snow costumes as well as Final Fantasy XIII-themed weapons for your avatars. We already covered that in a past article, so you should be familiar with this by now.
Today, the official site of Lightning Returns: FFXIII released details of their second “korabo” (collaboration – Japanese slang) with FFXIV. This time, the tables are turned as Lightning will be getting a Miq’ote (or Mithra to you FFXI nuts) costume/wear. The Miq’ote outfit for Lightning will feature a sword, shield (though which ones are not specified yet), a special victory pose and of course, the FFXIV victory fanfare.
This will be Lightning’s second cross-over wear, since her first one is with Cloud Strife where she gets his SOLDIER uniform as well as the Buster Sword and the FFVII victory fanfare.
There is also a planned cross-collaboration between Lightning Returns: FFXIII and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, but details have yet to be revealed. Watch the SD-HD comparison video about the HD Remaster if you haven’t yet. It’s mind-blowing.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (PS3/Xbox 360) will be out Nov. 21st. Final Fantasy XIV ~A Realm Reborn~ (PC/PS3) will be launching August 27th with the PS4 version coming 2014, and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (PS3/Xbox 360) is coming sometime 2013, exact date pending.
Credits go to my Irish Linkshell mate Alan/Siege for pointing the Miq’ote outfit out! I wouldn’t see this campaign otherwise!
