Considering we're on the discussion of alts, (I might get scoweled for this) I wouldn't mind if she gets to wear Cloud's outfit. Hell, if Square wants to promote their next game, give Cloud a Lightning alt.
I'm trying to find the middle line between the two and I'm just putting out more options for her alts considering a Tifa alt wouldn't suit her. But that's just IMO.
I myself would want Lighting over Cloud Strife just because PASBR lacks Female Characters. Personally it will come down to Lara Croft vs Lighting to represent Square Enix. IF it should happen. Hope Scarlett Blake and Nariko make it in too BEFORE Lara Croft or LIghting.
no lightning no matter what
Alright you pursued me. Lighting would be a unique character than a pure gun totting Lara Croft. PASBR all ready has plenty of them. Lighting would have magic, sword and summoning moves, attacks and Super than Lara Croft. *puts on my Team Lighting T-shirt*
I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one rooting for Lightning to be in this game. I feel that one crucial element that you're missing in this move set is her paradigm roles. Playing Dissidia 012 with Lightning as my main, the paradigm shifts really add another interesting element to her character in battle. But thats if they chose to implement it... (assuming she is the FF representative)
I'm wanting Lightning in the game too. I really enjoy her character and had fun playing as her in Dissidia.
I may get attacked but I'm also going to say I enjoyed ff13 and the sequal I thought they were both fun.
