Alright the first scans/shots of the game are out with an image Lightning's new design:

There's also a summarized interview that came out on 4gamer from NeoGAF:
Quote:

"LR:FFXIII new info from the dev team's recent interview with 4Gamer
Yesterday I posted a translation summary of some info on the first page of the interview. Here are semi-translated info from the second page of the interview by a friend’s friend. You can take this as a grain of salt for now, but it’s better than nothing, right? FF.net should be releasing a full translation of the whole interview soon.

•There’s a separate team dedicated to each continent to ensure absolute equal quality and perfection
•Abe (gameplay director) checked out some of the fields and its polish is considerably massive and there’s lots of stuff to do, not to mention you can spend lots of time on one continent
•Kamikokuryo (art director) reiterates how there’s a high degree of freedom and free roam and you can even travel high terrain view points while being able to see the cities and passing through them like that
•It is compared to an MMO in some form and Abe is surprised by the results when he does a test on the game and what the team has put in
•There may possibly be different quests and gameplay features per continent

Outfit looks like it came from a classic horror game or something.

^She does like rather vampire-ike, mostly due to the color. I think the outfit is alright overall, but it's not something I plan to stick throughout the whole game especially since your armor's appearance will change based on what you have equipped anyway.

It is actually quite sad that Square Enix needed to claim they are doing high quality work... Once upon a time it was considered a given fact.

Sadly, I don't see myself buying XIII-3. Not since I don't see how I would be willing to sit through the two previous titles to get there. I am not sure I would be willing to play them even if they were free. That's the risk of a trilogy; they can't expect people to buy the third game without enjoying the previous 2. While I could enjoy each FF franchise independently on their own merits.

Good luck to them. May they find out how to make games again.

You're looking far too much into that comment. I hear this from Japanese developers all the time and there really isn't anything wrong with it either. The things SE doing with this game sound pretty ambitious (specifically the time elements).

Have you played FFXIII-2? It's very solid title and it was received pretty favorably oversea and JP fans. If you didn't like FFXIII you give that a try since for most part it's pretty different.

Except they do, FFXIII is far from the only game they have developed.

Vampire Hooker But honestly I don't think it's all that bad! I can tolerate a bizarre design so long as the gameplay and plot are interesting. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if XIII & XIII-2 Lightning outfits are released as DLC meaning if you don't like Vamp!Light then you can change her clothes if you want to.

That's an actual gameplay mechanic. LR apparently uses a Job-esque system where every piece of armor/cloth has a unique ability and certain sets can grant class skills and bonuses. Best of all is that the changes are all visible unlike every other single player FF. So basically mix and match almost anything to fit a preferred playing style. Sounds pretty cool to me.

I think the design is fine, but I'm not a huge Lightning fan so I don't really care that much.

Frankly I just want this game to come out so we can move onto the next game. Of course that may just be the annoyance after XIII-2 coming through. Just conclude it properly. No more ridiculous cliffhangers.

So now she's a half-assed Advent Children Cloud design. Nomura doesn't even care anymore

Won't that imposed time limit get in the way though?

Right boob looks considerably bigger.

Anyway, that costume is very good. Black doesn't suit Lightning.

totally agree with you on there i mean the more time they spend on this story the longer it would toke for a new story to come out
i mean ive heard little to nothing on versus xiii in awhile except the rumor of its developement being canceled when it wasn't so honestly even though i am a lightning fan i kinda want the story to be over with
