PS3-exclusive Lightning Returns DLC included with FFX/X-2 HD

Lightning can wear Yuna's outfit if you purchase both games.

Purchasing a PlayStation 3 copy of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will net you a free Yuna costume for Lightning in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix has announced.

The set includes Yuna's distinctive costume, staff, and victory pose. Let's just hope that Lightning doesn't inherit Yuna's painful pretend-laugh.

Failing that, Lightning can also don the attire of the most famous Final Fantasy hero of them all: Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is out on February 11, though Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD isn't out until March 18.

I could ALMOST buy a PS-3 for Higher Def Final Fantasy X.  My wife would have to divorce me first.

I don't really care for all the dl costumes but the Cloud outfit is a cool touch. Using his outfit/sword is just a reminder that Square is aware of the fan base for FF7 so why nothing more than costumes and cameos. Remake FF7 or make a direct sequel, an do the same for FF Tactics.

I was not interested in this game until I dl the demo a few days ago, after that I preordered it. I was not a fan of the last 2 Final Fantasy games. Just could not get into them, hopefully this one is a lot better.

Please, only Yuna FITS in that costume properly. Lightning is just getting more and more pathetic...

My choices were to either buy a PS3 to play the HD remakes, or a PS Vita.......... I hated FFXIII so much that I will get the Vita just because of this article. Thanks Gamespot!

Yea right! All of these costumes will end up being DLC ( for both consoles ) before the end of the year!....Besides from that. Yuna's Gunner dressphere ( from Final Fantasy X-2 ) would looked alot better on Lightning than this!

I know technically its on the vita as well, but the game itself is basically a ps3 exclusive, so its kind of redundant to call the dlc that.

New turn-based FF games will no longer happen. Move on

Final Fantasy 13 is the worst! WHY THEY KEEP PUSHING SEQUELS TO THE WORST OF THEM ALL IS BEYOND MY SIMPLE LITTLE MIND!

GIVE IT UP ALREADY SQUARE! If you wanted to make a sequel that FANS WANTED it would be a sequel to Final Fantasy 7, or FF8.... 
This is just hilarious!

Lame. Give me Lulu's outfit and I might consider it.

Excellent.  I will be getting FFX HD for sure now.  Then I can use the DLC paper slip for extra toilet paper.  
I will smile as I wipe my ass, knowing I didn't buy "Toriyama's Waifu Returns"

Played the demo...worst battle system ever. Constantly changing clothes otherwise you can't fight....lol. The eff'd this up big time. The story elements were...well couldn't find any. It was like some mish-mash of CG put together incoherently. Passing on this one. Not going to get suckered like I did for the last two.

So you think costumes form other better FF's will make 13-3 good?  Lipstick on a pig doesn't make it more appealing to kiss.

Looks pretty cool.  Will still buy.  Needs a tan, though.

god damn westerns are stupid they say jrpg are outdated and then they bitch about ff when it tries to be an action rpg

Who cares.  You can try and dress this game up to be like the better Final Fantasy games that came before it SE but it will still be a mediocre action RPG instead of the great strategy turn based RPGs at this series roots.

So....why do all the PS3 owners get all this extra shit, but us Vita owners are left out in the cold?

@Rayzakk I would warm up to this game much, much better if only it didn't feature (IMO) one of the most forgettable and boring FF characters as the main lead.

@StaleCrackers No one willingly needs skin damage and skin cancer risks which is what tanning is. Some people are darker and some paler and you should be comfortable in your natural skin. No one should be seeking to lighten or dark their skin since there is nothing wrong with any skin tone. Stop damaging it with sun exposure you don't need and or lining up the pockets of business that profit off skim shaming. This twisted mindset needs to stop.

@enoughofthis  Regardless of the replies, that is exactly what I have been seeing on the boards.

@enoughofthis no westerner has said that. all that outdated bullshit comes from japan where they feel the need to cater towards westerners when all we actually want is their games made for them ( well in english or atleast english subs) like that front mission 3rd person bullshit a few years ago when all any front mission fan wants is the turn based games that don't leave japan

 "... to date, Final Fantasy XIII has sold approximately 6.6 million units. While that game’s numbers were the only ones shown, it’s pretty easy to subtract 6.6 million from 9.7 million to find out sales for Final Fantasy XIII-2: 3.1 million. 

The Fabula Nova Crystallis series has already seen more than 50% of players neglect a return visit to the world of Lightning and friends. That’s not good."

I like how fans are in denial.

@iawesome07 @Hellhound30xCheck the first week sales for FF13, FF13-2 and FF13-3 and you'll see how much they *actually* like FF13.


Spoilers - they hate it too.

@xOmniCloudx@StaleCrackers Oh?  How about folks that are naturally darker skinned making themselves look lighter?  These games are coming out of Japan, you know.  Check the skin colors on the characters in these JRPGs - even the ones that never sell outside of Japan.

@normanislost @enoughofthis  If anything its the opposite since and most of Japan actually enjoys it. FF XIII and its sequels have consistently received  good scores in Japan from Famitsu

@jacquelineferre@tjoeb123I wasn't talking about just this, I was also including the fact that the PS3 version has a LE/CE, Vita version doesn't.  And I plan on buying the game for the latter.

@iawesome07  Really? Famitsu reviews/scores? They're worst than IGN's reviews. You must be delusional if you don't know about all the hate FFXIII has.
