Although the sword would constrict her movement by a great amount I think it works for her ^.^. Unfortunately the rest kind of screws up the look though. I actually think these clothes suit her better (Not fashion wise, but think about someone like Lightning... Your much more likely to see her dressed like this in my opinion.) Those freakin pants, boots, and wrist-guard/bracer kind of puts me off of the look though.
I am not very excited with this news. In fact I hate it when SE change our Lightning into someone else, She is herself, not a clone of Cloud or whatever they say. Not to mention this costume looks awfully with those baggy pants on her. I hope they won't make LRFFXIII as a dress-up game. This really is a sick joke, SE.

It's called a marketing tactic. Do you really think FFVII fans will be lured in by this, since many of them loathe the FFXIII series? No, Cloud Strife is part of the Square Enix name, and if they want to make an ode to him and past protagonists, they can by all means do that. This Cloud DLC doesn't even cost anything, so whether you pre-order the game or buy it after release won't change anything. Oh, Etro. People these days.
Why so rude? Did you have a bad poop? I know that's a marketing strategy. And I've never said that SE wants to lure FFVII fans with this costume (wtf?). And they can do with Cloud whatever they want to do, nothing changes the fact, that they want to make FFXIII:LR more tempting for the fans, no matter if they like FFVII or FFXIII or whatsoever. Please read my postings more precisely and don't start attacking me like that, kiddo.
Althought this costume is free and limited to those who pre-ordered LRFFXIII and is one of the most amazing characters of FF, it's just not suit Lightning. The sword may look good but not the clothes. Damn SE.
I hate it how they give Lightning every damn costume of former FF heroes. I bet she will wear Squalls or Tidus' outfit too in the future. I like her much more with her gunblade and female clothing than with Angeals/Zacks/Clouds buster sword and these ugly baggy pants. xD
