Pic creds to ayaloren!

What can we see: Hope is an adult again. Team NORA is back.

Thank god for this.. Finally some closure the characters deserve instead of that abrupt, iffy open ending.

I'm embarrassed to say this, but how would I know? I think it comes closest to what she wears in the New World, that might be it. Or at least it's the one that looks most normal apart from the dresses she doesn't enjoy wearing.

Congrats, by the way.

Did every XIII novel have pictures? Also how the hell did NORA survive ?_?

They're reborn into the New World. It's only the cover... There are no pictures in the book.

Ah cool. I guess they couldn't bother creating some new clothes for them all and have them pose for a nice group pic or something.

Eh. If NORA is back, then there's no reason that Bartholomew and Nora wouldn't be too... What about Snow's parents, Lightning's parents, Dajh's mom, Fang and Vanille's families? What decides who gets to return and who doesn't?

Also, congrats for what?

Maybe. I could do better in XNALara...

But Hope's parents would undermine his character arc.. Kind of. It's what he gave up for Lightning. And the world. But I don't know. I'm pretty sure Dajh's mom or the Pulsian's families won't be there for reasons.

Hope being taller than me.

So are you excited about this continuation, iightningz? I remember you saying over and over "it's over. Time to move on" or some reasonable facsimile of that.

I'm happy that they are bothering to do this... but I'll say what I'll always say: The info and story contained in these novellas would have improved the games stories by about 50%.

Yes. I would be pissed if there were a new game or DLC. Thankfully it being a reading article was confirmed the same day the picture of Famitsu was teased, which Dualshockers somehow left out... I didn't have to worry much.

Novels are the perfect way to wrap an unfinished story up, not continue it.

I always felt that the ending had lousy closure and needed a better form of wrapping things up and stop leaving it up to interpretation where everything is so iffy.
