New Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Costume DLC Lets Lightning Cosplay as Lara Croft

on February 5, 2014 3:17 PM

The worlds of Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider have come together. When Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is released next week it will launch with Costume DLC that will allow the game’s protagonist to look like everyone’s favorite, dirt covered archaeologist.

The Costume DLC will come with the Survivor’s Axe and Riot Shield that were seen in last year’s Tomb Raider. The costume itself will be as grimy as it was in TR and, as is seen in the trailer, fits perfectly in the Dead Dunes section of the game.

This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen something like this from a FF XIII game. Final Fantasy XIII-2 had a Mass Effect themed Costume DLC that allowed players to don the armor of Commander Shepard. This Costume DLC is from another Square-Enix game which makes perfect sense.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next week on February 11th.
