The latest issue of Famitsu magazine has dropped a heap of info regarding Square Enix’s downloadable content plans for Final Fantasy XIII-2, specifically regarding the character of Lightning.
According to the publication (via Andriasang), the FFXIII heroine will appear in the sequel as a downloadable coliseum character – beat her, and you’ll be able to add her to your party.
Furthermore, Lightning will also feature in ‘secret story episodes’ in FFXIII-2, though Square is remaining tight-lipped on any specific details.
Elsewhere, representatives for Square Enix’s 1st Production Department confirmed that the Japanese company is hoping to flesh out FFXIII-2’s narrative outside of DLC, such as novels and other media. In particular, Square says it is keen to feature Sazh and his son in this extended material.
Finally, the firm also touched briefly on the forthcoming high-definition revamp of Final Fantasy X. Apparently, screenshots on the game won’t be arriving just yet, though Square hopes it won't take too long to get the game released.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is due out in the U.S. on January 31, with a European release arriving on February 3.
