Now this is what we’re talking about when it comes to fan service. Square Enix has recently announced a pre-order incentive for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, due to release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February 2014. Simply pre-order the game now and you’ll receive free DLC which features Cloud Strife’s SOLDIER 1st Class Uniform, Buster Sword and Soldier Band.
They also included Cloud’s famous sword spinning animation for Lightning when you win battles, along with the familiar victory tune from the classic Final Fantasy games. Is Square Enix trying too hard to get you to like the game? Probably.
Of course, the pre-order offer is for a limited time only. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be out on February 11th in North America and will retail for $59.99, and as far as we know, this pre-order bonus is for the PlayStation 3 version. Stay tuned for updates on whether Xbox 360 gamers will be as lucky.
