Square Enix just released the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII demo from E3 and PAX Prime as a download in Japan. Players will get to try the single character combat system and fight Zaltys, a dragon boss Lightning faces early in the game. The demo also has the Outworld feature so you can post sceenshots like your battle scores on Twitter and Facebook.
The demo also has a special costume. If you have a Japanese PSN account you can download the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII demo now. It’s available on Xbox 360 as well, but only for Japanese gold accounts. It will be available for Silver Members in Japan starting on December 3.
And if you have Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII you can purchase additional costumes like the Loveable Moogle Style. This outfit comes with the Moogle Queen garb, Moogle Stick weapon, and Moogle Shield. I wonder if any Moogles were harmed making this…
The Holy Asgard set includes Cosmo Curator garb, Crocea Mors weapon, and Abyss Gate shield.
The Ultimate Liberator set includes Celestial garb plus Final Fantasy staples like the Excalibur sword and Aegis Shield.
Each costume is 400 yen ($4) or you can get all three for 1,000 yen ($10). Square Enix will release two more costume collections for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, one on December 17 and another on February 16, 2014. We’ll have to wait until the game comes out on February 11, 2014 before any of these DLC packs come out.
