First round of Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC coming next week

Final Fantasy XIII-2 just came out in North America, and Europe is expected to get the game on February 3. Despite the fact that most of will have just gotten started, Square Enix announced that the first round of DLC for the game will be released next week.

The first Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC will add in a new Coliseum battle, dubbed “Lightning & Amodar”. As you may have guessed from the mission’s title, the Coliseum battle will have you face off against Final Fantasy XIII protagonist Lightning, and Lt. Amodar.

The fight itself isn’t the real point of the DLC, however. Should you win the battle, you’ll be able to recruit Lightning as a member of your party. Considering that it will only set you back $2.99 on both platforms, that doesn’t sound like too bad of a deal to me.

In related Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC news, Siliconera reports that even more DLC is on the way over the next few months. A new bikini costume will be made available for Serah at some point in February, and other costumes will be released on down the line, such as a costume for Hope based on Assassin’s Creed‘s Ezio Auditore.

Square Enix says that it plans to release an “extensive” amount of Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC over the next several months, and you can look forward to more information on that soon.
