Lightning DLC coming to Final Fantasy XIII-2

Final Fantasy XIII protagonist coming in two ways.

Following a small tease last month, an interview this week’s Famitsu has revealed exactly how Lightning will come to Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Lightning will first be available as a coliseum character. Defeat her, and she’ll join your group as a third party member (completely contradicting the story, yah?). Square Enix is also planning to release secret story episodes featuring Lightning.

The publisher hopes to expand the game’s story beyond downloadable content. They wish to touch on characters such as Sazh, Dajh, and Chocolina in both downloadable content and books.

Separate from Final Fantasy XIII-2, Square Enix briefly mentions Final Fantasy X HD. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for screenshots, but they hope development time doesn’t end up very long.
