Square Enix has revealed that Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII’s eponymous heroine can be kitted out to look just like Cloud Strife from fan-favourite Final Fantasy VII.

Pre-ordering the upcoming action-RPG sequel will allow Lightning to wear Cloud’s costume, complete with his iconic Buster Sword. The clobber forms part of the pre-order bonus pack, which also features a limited edition steelbook.

That’s not all though. Square is also hinting at more Cloud-related goodies unlocked when you wear his outfit, stating, “Specific abilities that come with the Cloud outfit and weapon will be announced at a later time.”

Elsewhere, another pre-order pack nets you the Lightning Samurai Set, featuring a Shogun, Sohei Savior and Flower of the Battle outfits.

Lightning Returns will be striking PS3 and Xbox 360 in February 2014.

What do you think of the Cloud outfit? Does it tempt you into pre-ordering the game? Or perhaps you aren’t fussed about FFVII and would rather plump for the Samurai pack? Let us now in the comments section below.
