certainly seen some strange character crossovers before on certain Xbox 360
titles (the appearance of Yoda in the 360 version of Soul Calibur IV

available as an optional outfit for Noel Kreiss, one of the characters in the
upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2.

If there weren’t already enough hints that Final Fantasy XIII-2
might be returning to the over-the-top

in a variety of different costumes.

) in designing
some costumes for the main character suggests that FFXIII-2
might be going down the J-pop route once again. Time will tell.
