And one of them is not Kefka or Ultros. Yet.

Siliconera’s source has revealed that upcoming DLC for the never-ending story that is Final Fantasy XIII-2 will feature two monsters from beloved classic Final Fantasy VI. One has already been revealed: Typhon (or Chupon in the SNES version), a monster whose powerful “Snort” attack is strong enough to blow your party completely out of the encounter.

Later in VI Typhon becomes a combatant in the Dragon’s Neck Coliseum, which is run by — surprise, surprise — Ultros. It should also be noted that Typhon is touted as Ultros’s back-up or partner whenever you encounter the sleazy purple octopus. Could Typhon’s boss be the second fighter from VI to enter XIII-2‘s ring? Stay tuned!
