Lightning can be a pretty girl with new Lightning Returns costume DLC


I mean, she was already pretty. But you know.

Did you pick up Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII? Are you still playing it? Are you thinking that the fact DLC has already slipped out for release is a little ludicrous considering how the game feels like it just came out yesterday? Me too. Well, at least when it comes to that last sentiment. I suppose it makes sense though, given the fact that costume DLC is always the first to come out. You might say it came out speedily. Like lightning. No? Okay, I was reaching. You caught me.

In any case, if you took the plunge to get all up in Lightning's world, today you can pick up some additional costumes, shields, and weapons for some pure aesthetic adrenaline. I'm actually pretty pumped, because for $9.99 you can pick up the Final Fantasy Legends DLC, which includes classics like Yuna, Cloud, and my personal favorite (as pictured above) Aerith. It's a beautiful thing. I'm not sure it's ten bucks beautiful, but my inner Final Fantasy nerd is screaming "YAAAAAAAS, GIRL. YAAAAAAAAAAAS!" and I will probably end up buying them.

You can also nab the Samurai DLC packages, which are cool, but considerably less interesting. The Sohei Savior and Shogun DLC packages run you $2.99 apiece and net you a costume, weapon, and shield apiece. You can purchase The Samurai Collection for $9.99, which will net you all seven Samurai outfits at once as well, but no weapons. It's pricey, but you get seven outfits for the price of three classic Final Fantasy costumes. I think you know what the better choice is here. Are you going to snap up any of these goodies? Please stop me from spending a lot of money.

Square Enix, please call me when you want to let Lightning crossplay. You will own my wallet.
