Lightning Returns Demo Out Today, Yuna Pre-Order Outfit Revealed


A playable demo for Lightning Returns, the third and final chapter in the Final Fantasy XIII saga, is available to take for a trial run today on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.


The demo takes place in the Yusnaan palace, where players will get a chance to try out Lightning’s new customization options and combat skills. Additionally, demo players who activate the Outerworld services and post their battle scores after the end fight against Zaltys will unlock a bonus Siegfried costume. PlayStation 3 users also get another bonus costume just for downloading the demo. This exclusive piece of DLC, the Utsusemi Garb, includes the Heavenly Fan weapon and the Kaminari shield. Both costumes will be unlocked for use in the full retail game when it ships on February 11th (they won’t be available in the demo).


In other bonus costume news, Square Enix has announced an exclusive pre-order deal with offering the ‘Spira’s Summoner’ outfit (including staff and victory pose) worn by Yuna from Final Fantasy X. That’s in addition to the existing Cloud Strife bonus costume. Lightning sure loves to play dress-up!
