Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Gets its Very Own Sweets

on November 19, 2013 11:35 AM

In Japan sweet snacks by Ezaki Glico are extremely popular, especially the classic “Pocky” (those breadsticks covered in chocolate you’ve probably seen in a thousand anime series), and looks like starting next week they’re going to get a Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII flavor.

Lightning and her companions are going to appear on the boxes of seven different products, that will be sold exclusively at the convenience stores chain Family Mart in Japan.

Below and above you can see three examples, including one portraying the new Pocky box. Motomu Toriyama wants to show the “moe” and “burning” sides of Lightning in the new game, but looks like we’re going to taste her sweet side too.
