Square Enix has announced that it will be releasing Final Fantasy XIII-2 in Japan, both under the Ultimate Hits label (and therefore as a standalone game) also as a Digital Contents Selection package which include the game and all the DLC released for it.
This includes Colosseum Fights and costumes (though the crossover items like the N7 Armour from Mass Effect and an Assassin’s Creed costume for Noel, won’t be included).
It also features DLC packages like Sazh: Heads or Tails, Snow: Perpetual Battlefield plus The Lost Report which retells the story from the perspective of Rygdea and Yaag Rosch, two PSICOM operatives.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 Digital Contents Selection will release on July 18th for 5,040 yen, while the Ultimate Hits version will retail for 2,940 yen. A digital release for FFXIII-2 will also be available as a download for 2,940 yen/2,000 Microsoft Points on July 16th for PSN and Xbox Live Arcade along with just the DLC for 2,100 yen/1,360 Microsoft Points.
And sadly, the West won’t be seeing a similar package…for now.
