The latest issue of Weekly Jump has begun leaking out and with it some new information on LRFFXIII.

The big scoop is an all new character by the name of Lumina. She is said to be both a help and hindrance – with an appearance somewhat like Serah, content with toying with Lightning.

Not much else is known about her, but more information should be available soon – or at least by next week when Famitsu provides the entire thing.

Stay tuned.

Jump this week introduces a new character for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Lumina is a young woman who appears at Lightning’s destination. She’s both a help and a hindrance to Lightning. She’s very Sera-like, but more goth-loli, and with duck-lips. She appears to be using Lightning as a toy.

Lighting, as previously confirmed, will have many new costumes in Lightning Returns, referred to in the game as “Wear.” You can set three types of Wear and change them in battle. These include: the “Dark Muse,” a kitchen knife, camouflage jacket, pants with wide holes, and grid-shaped shield; and “Alone in a Sandstorm,” which is armor like a samurai.

Of course, Lightning will also have new magic and abilities. She’ll be able to guard and evade. And she can receive quests from a bulletin board. Clearing quests apparently leads to time extensions.

Lumina? That's like a play of the Latin word of light.

Oh come on, really?!

I guess this is the "Dark Muse" outfit?

And this one might be "Alone in a Sandstorm".

I think Lumina is a pretty name. Coming from a series with names like "Cloud" and "Squall" it really is pretty tame.

Sounds pretty enough, but we don't need more allusions to light, really.

I feel the same. The name is tame and fits well for a dame. Definitely not lame.

I'd add one more, but it would be... inappropriate.

Yep, I'm a guy! teehee <3

Cool news. I can't wait to see Lumina.

When do you think scans will arrive?
