Repost from FFXIII-2 Board (since I think this is the new big FF place, right?)
I'm getting a funny feeling that Square Enix is MASSIVELY overestimating the world's interest in Lightning. Maybe she's like stupidly popular in Japan, but amongst Final Fantasy characters, I dunno. I don't think Lightning alone would sell a game, it would actually have to be something WORTH PLAYING.
So who do you want to see return? Who is that Final Fantasy character that would actually deserve the ten minutes of gushing that Toriyama gave last night to Lightning?
I'm going to say BALTHIER RETURNS, would actually get my ass in the seats. Who for you?
