Digimon All-Star Rumble's new trailer is all about the Supers

Back when Bandai Namco announced Digimon All-Star Rumble for the PS3 and 360, I ended up having mixed feelings on the news. On one side, it's neat that we're getting a multiplayer party brawler where we can fight as our favo...

Let Tetsuya Nomura be the judge of your Lightning artwork photo
Let Tetsuya Nomura be the judge of your Lightning artwork
by Kristina Pino

Square Enix and DeviantArt have teamed up for a fantastic contest in which artists are invited to create a custom look for Lightning. Anything about her appearance, from her body to accessories you'd want to see on her, are fair game. The only real fine print here is whatever you do, it should fall within the scope of the FFXIII series in terms of any references you make that involve Final Fantasy games.

For a look at all the official rules, a collection of reference art, submission guidelines, and everything else you might need to know, you can check out the official page. At the time of writing, there's still a week left to submit an entry, and as I implied in the heading of this article: Tetsuya Nomura is judging this contest personally. There will be three (3) grand prize winners, who are getting an original sketch from Nomura, a custom XBox360, US$1,000, the FFXIII trilogy for XBox 360, a shirt (unfortunately a fixed size instead of based on the winners), and a keychain.

This contest is open to artists anywhere on the planet, as long as they're over 13 years of age and follow all the guidelines, which are clearly listed on the contest's landing page.
