The release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has thankfully finally brought the arc of Lightning and Final Fantasy XIII‘s main supporting characters to a close. However, due to the popularity of the sub-series’ protagonist, Lightning, this may not be the last time we see the character.

“For Lightning, her story ends here in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, as this game is meant as a finale to this series. But we know that Lightning is an extremely popular character, even when compared to other Final Fantasy characters,” Director Motomu Toriyama told Siliconera, “So there is a possibility that Lightning would appear in other future Final Fantasy titles, not as a protagonist, but as a guest character.”

The next entry in the main Final Fantasy series will be Final Fantasy XV, which is currently being developed for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
