Lightning sure has discovered a strong passion for cosplay in her third and final appearance in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, and why not? The world may cease to exist in thirteen days so she might as well look good while she still can!

Pre-order customers will already have the opportunity to dress the eponymous heroine of Lightning Returns, out next week on PS3 and Xbox 360, in costumes modeled after fellow Final Fantasy superstars like Cloud and Yuna. But for her next cosplay role, Lightning is rocking the garb of Tomb Raider icon and video game sex symbol, Lara Croft.

Available to download on both consoles beginning February 11th (pricing is not provided in the press release), the Tomb Raider DLC will let Lightning borrow the shorts, boots, vest, survivor’s axe and riot shield from Lara’s wardrobe. It looks like she’s even stealing from Lara’s tomb raiding makeup kit to dirty up her fair skin for the full effect.
