IGN.com have posted information from the latest Famitsu magazine. Most of which has already been posted here, but there are a few of differences over the other translations.
Farushi in IGN’s post is called Farsi.
For Rushi, ign have called them Lusi.
Also according to ign, famitsu is only speculating the blond man and the pig tailed girl are Rushi/Lusi, the magazine isn’t saying that they actually are.
“In the feature, we’re reintroduced to everything we know about the main entry in the FFXIII franchise. We’ve already heard about Cocoon, a floating colony world created by crystals. Cocoon protects its millions of citizens through technology and mechanization. It contrasts with Pulse, the natural world which lay below it. The residents of Cocoon fear Pulse.

Regarding these two conflicting worlds, Famitsu reveals that Pulse, while not mechanized like Cocoon, has crystals itself, although their role is unclear. The magazine also reveals what appears to be a resident of Pulse, a pigtailed young woman whose name we’ve yet to learn. This girl was first introduced in the latest installment of the slowly expanding FFXIII trailer, which was shown at the Jump Festa event late last year.
A CG scene in the magazine’s screen shots shows pigtail girl standing on a cliff looking out over a distant landscape of Pulse. Below her, large, tusked dinosaur-like creatures herd through a river valley. Above her in the distance, looking somewhat like a moon, Cocoon floats in the cloudy daylight sky.
The magazine also makes first mention of two types of creatures in the FFXIII world: Farsi and Lusi. The Farsi are supernatural beings who built Cocoon. Their relationship with the crystals is unclear. The Lusi are people who were chosen to carry out particular orders from the Farsi. The exact details of those orders are also being kept a secret for now.
Famitsu speculates that the previously introduced main character, Lightening, is a Lusi, as she has been chosen by the crystals as “the enemy of humanity who will bring about the downfall of the world.” Incidentally, Lightening is not her real name, meaning we still don’t know the names of any of the FFXIII characters. The magazine also speculates that pigtail girl and the male character who sports a bandanna in previous trailers are also Lusi.
Past trailers have introduced us to one summon, a version of Shiva which transforms into a motorcycle. The latest Jump trailer, and week’s Famitsu as well, offered a first look at Ifreet and Carbuncle, the latter being a cute creature that should be familiar to Final Fantasy series veterans. The trailer showed Carbuncle emerge from a large laserdisc-like disc when the pig-tailed girl took the disc in her hands. It’s unclear if these two new summons will, like Shiva, transform into vehicles.
Summons appear to have a major role in the game. They will be used outside of battle and as part of the story, as shown in the bike transformation sequence from past trailers, where Shiva comes to the assistance of bandanna sexy guy.
The article closed off with the promise of a first real look at Final Fantasy XIII running off the PlayStation 3 sometime later this year. Looks like the trickle will become a flood shortly that will hopefully contain actual character names so that we can stop saying bandanna guy and pigtail girl.”
