I'm kinda getting a Bayonetta and DMC vibe from it.

I thought the same way, it doesn't even look like armor, when I first looked I thought she was wearing tight black leather.

LOL WTF?? Is that real?

So convoluted and messy... Can't they make a simple yet good design? Seems like they wanted to cram too much detail on this one. Looks like a clown.

At least it isn't a ridiculously revealing and unpractical chainmail bikini like the ones worn by 99% of action heroines in videogames.

Is her shield... the logo?


Dunno, but it looks like she has a necklace or something shaped like the logo.

This looks practical to you?

Got an email from Square Portal telling me this..., have to say something.

For some reason that almost looks like her XIII-2 armor got infected by chaos. And her necklace is the logo...apparently. The overall design seems like a mix of dark knight, red mage and white mage. I like it. Glad that it's not too revealing too.

Unpractical?
THAT CHEST PIECE IS IDIOTIC. If she will bend quickly that thing should pierce her stomach. I hate it.

I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!

...go ahead, compare them outfits... since I don't have any brain bleach, you all will have to live with the image that's currently burning its way into your skulls... (And all of a sudden I'm reminded of this: http://www.nuklearpower.com/2003/12/04/episode-359-flawless-victories/ ...with me being Fighter and the rest of the community here being Black Mage... My god, what have I wrought? *whimpers* Please don't stab me in the head.)


Kuja's cosplay is worst! lol
