This was first teased ages ago with the Lightning fashion shoot, but it's finally here. I'm sure you're all very excited.

I could also be reading the page incorrectly, but it looks like they changed the combat system, at least for the event, to FF13's, or an approximation of it.

Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII will be the first ”Ultimate Hero" card in Mobius Final Fantasy, Square Enix announced.

Ultimate Hero cards strengthen the main character and transforms their appearance, voice, and ultimate attack to that of the character.


The Lightning Ultimate Hero card will be added alongside a new storyline and other content updates and gameplay enhancements as part of the ”Lightning Resurrection" event that begins today, which also includes:

  • 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.

Lightning has accomplished many legendary feats in FINAL FANTASY XIII...
However, after drifting to Palamecia, she seems to have lost the spark she once had...

The stage is set where it all began in FFXIII: The Hanging Edge.
The battles here will require you to utilize paradigms to succeed.
Travel across the Crystarium to power up your paradigms and see what new adventures with Lightning await you!

The story is a completely new story written for this event.
The latest adventures of Lightning are here for you to enjoy!

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?
She will not be forgotten

Every single time I see her and that initial area I get dragged back in. FFXIII best characters, lore and locations of the entire series fuck haters!

The game has had a collaboration with Final Fantasy VII before, yar? Yet that event doesn't give this "Ultimate Hero" card thing? Poor Cloud.

In Japan, Cloud was the first ultimate hero job, followed by Sephiroth a few months later, then Lightning, then Ya Shtora. I have all four and didn't spend a single yen on them.

So how do you get it?
Last time I heard legendary job costed like $70+ and I was glad I quitted that game before.

That was Tidus, you had to spend like 100 dollars on the in-game currency and you'd get him. He wasn't an "ultimate hero" though it was just an extra rare job card ("legend")

That's no longer the case anymore since all Legend Jobs including the new Ultimate Hero are pullable.

Snow and Hope are boosted on the first banner.

Goddess Knight (XIII-2 Lightning) and Noel are on batch 2.

Boosted has a much higher chance (like 20ish%) and if you do pull a legend job on it will be one of the boosted. Once you pull both then it drops back down to the regular rate and you can pull any other legend like Judge, Mystic Sage, etc.

Magicite is also farmable now (20k a month) and they give out more Summon Tickets too.

VII will get a rerun with Cloud and Sephiroth ultimate hero jobs.

Did they really have to call it that? I don't hate her but I feel like they make things surrounding her more cringey than necessary.

So is Lightning really that popular? She has to be in order to keep popping up like this well after the XIII trilogy has ended. I don't follow Final Fantasy as closely as I used to but obviously they wouldn't keep plastering her face everywhere if it wasn't selling.

She should be forgotten.

Japan likes her. Toriyama likes her. That's enough.
