Though gamers aren’t normally thought of as being fashionable, the new Prada 2012 Spring Men's Collection will surely convince many of them into taking an interest in dressing stylishly. After all, it’s not every day that video game characters are chosen as fashion models for an upcoming line, so to see the likes of Lightning, Sazh Katzroy, Noel Kreiss, Hope Estheim and Snow Villiers from Final Fantasy XIII-2 being dressed in Prada’s casually chic clothes is quite a momentous event.

Those familiar with the Final Fantasy games may even get a chuckle out of these Prada 2012 Spring Men's Collection photos as it seems the characters designed by Tetsuya Nomura are finally dressed in less outlandish apparel.
