Pre-Ordering Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy Grants Cloud Strife Costume

Square Enix has announced a rather interesting pre-order bonus for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which hails back to the days of the PlayStation One.

Anyone who pre-orders Lightning Returns with the Limited Edition will get a costume for Lightning, which will see her dressed up like the iconic Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII. They will also get to see Lightning using a Buster Sword and his famous victory pose.

Square Enix also revealed that there will be additional abilities that will come with the Cloud Strife outfit and weapon, but they will be announced at a later date. However, it is currently known that it will speed up levelling.

Square Enix were keen to stress that this will be a limited time offer, so if you haven't pre-ordered yet, it would be a good idea to do so now.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is now due to release on the 14th of February, 2014. It'll be releasing on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

To pre-order the game, you can go here for the UK and here for the US.

Following on from E3 2013, Square Enix were keen to stress again that the gameplay for Lightning Returns will be different from previous games in the franchise. So much so, that Yoshinori Kitase compared it to Dark Souls.
