Try cracking a smile

Journey into the realm of Eorzea before the 10th September and you may just run into a familiar face. That's right, Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning is carving her way into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn once again, as she returns for the third event of this kind.

Even if you're not a fan of Lightning and her rather divisive games, you still might like to know that you'll nab some rare clothing sets from fighting alongside the pink haired heroine. Female adventurers will get their own Lightning costume, while male players will receive Snow's outfit. However, if you already took part in this same event when it was active back in November 2013 or February 2014, you won't be able to battle next to the agile protagonist again.

Are you a fan of franchise crossovers, or do you wish that Lightning would keep out of as many games as possible? Show us your lovely locks in the comments section below.
