Final Fantasy XIII-2′s Heroes Dress Up Like Commander Shepard


Mass Effect 3 is everywhere right now. About the only place the game can’t be found is in a downloadable content crossover with Final Fantasy XIII-2. Oh wait… Never mind. My bad!

Piggybacking off of the smash-hit success of BioWare’s trilogy-closing space opera, Square Enix has collaborated with the EA-owned leaders of western RPG development to infuse their Japanese-flavored RPG sequel with a little Mass Effect 3 spice.

Beginning next week on Tuesday, March 27th, Final Fantasy XIII-2 players will be able to download optional costumes for heroes Serah Farron and Noel Kreiss. With this DLC enabled, Serah and Noel will get to dress up in a suit of N7 Armor, just like Commander Shepard. These costumes will cost $2.99/240 MS Points apiece.

A DLC pack adding Final Fantasy VI‘s Ultros and Typhon as coliseum opponents will also be made available on the 27th. And right now, Amazon and GameStop are both running specials for Final Fantasy XIII-2. Buying the game by March 31st at Amazon comes with a free copy of the original Final Fantasy XIII, while GameStop is simply offering a $20 discount on the game itself, bringing the price down to $39.99 through April 3rd.

Now, back to that N7 Armor…
