It looks like almost all of the old Final Fantasy XIII gang will be back in the final chapter of the Lightning Saga. Sazh, a fan favorite character, will be back in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and we’ll learn what he’s been up to.
Sazh now lives in a crashed airship, tormented by the fact that he hasn’t been able to save his son Dajh, who collapsed and has not awakened since.
The Sazh found in Lightning Returns is a different character from the cheerful man seen in Final Fantasy XIII. The only way for him to go back to his old ways is saving his son and that’s what Lightning will try to do during the course of the game.
Another older character will come back for Lightning Returns: Mog from Final Fantasy XIII-2. After the ending of the game, Mog was sucked into a vortex of chaos and has wandered in the Void Beyond. The little Mog is now the leader of Moogle Village.
Some new screenshots have also been released showcasing the two characters: check them out at the end of this post.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will launch in North America and Europe sometime during February 2014 on Ps3 and Xbox 360.
