With the debate regarding the Mass Effect 3 ending still open (you know things are serious when even the Bioware co-founder weighs in), Square Enix's teased a potential solution in the form of an upcoming DLC item. Is ME3's ending satisfactory? Does it beg comprehension? It is all a dream? No problems: just have Shepard 'n' pals take a visit to Final Fantasy, where all of the above are par for the course and no one ever seems to mind.

Alright, so only Shepard's armor seems to have made it through, but there's no need for it to go to waste, as seen in the above shot Famitsu (via Andriasang) have released showing Noel and Serah all kitted out in the N7 duds. It'll be released in Japan later in the month for 240 MSP, which means it ought to run to $3 here.

Famitsu's also shown pics of two of the game's upcoming DLC Coliseum monsters, Ultros and Typhon, who you may recognize if you've been playing Final Fantasy since comic-relief Gilbert and Sullivan side-quests were just something the series would throw at you sometimes. In which case, life probably holds few surprises for you anymore, so thanks for giving us a chance to tell you something new.

    I adore the last sentence of this story.

    A hint to the DLC ending of ME 3? You have to recruit Serah and Noel and time travel back to before the reapers started attacking. Im a genius.

    It's a crazy plan, but... etc.

    I love both ME and FF, so I'd love to see some cross-over DLC. Although, I would have preferred Garrus and Tali costumes rather than N7 armour, but whatever. In fact, stick Garrus and Tali in the coliseum so we can beat them and get them to join our team! (Fan Fic writers heads just exploded)
  • Ulukai - March 22, 2012 2:49 a.m.

    Now Bioware just need to reveal Ultros as the one behind the Reaper invasions.
  • Vordhosbn - March 22, 2012 2:05 a.m.

    I can understand them trying to get on the cash-grabbing bandwagon, but they could have chosen something a bit better than those generic looking ME outfits. Has anyone really ever looked at Mass Effect and thought "wow, that's a really cool Space Marine Uniform"? Ugly, bland, meh.
  • R-ape - March 21, 2012 11:39 p.m.

    The two extra monsters are nice, but why the armor? A Squall or Cloud skin would've been much better for me.
  • IceBlueKirby - March 21, 2012 10:56 p.m.

    I would totally buy Ultros if I had FFXIII-2, but I don't, so I'll just have to keep beating up the 2D version until Square remakes FFVI for the 3DS. (It's inevitable, really)
  • pr0tostar - March 21, 2012 8:49 p.m.

    and you know what, eff it... I'm calling out on Cloud ans Sephiroth coliseum DLC while I ride my cynical high horse off into the sunset. Stay classy, Squeenix.
  • pr0tostar - March 21, 2012 8:46 p.m.

    Alright, let's keep passing XIII-2 around the block1 Next up; Street Fighter costumes!
  • azureguy - March 21, 2012 7:04 p.m.

    Well... at least we can now play with both Male and Female Shephard at the same time! Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a good game, but the DLC craze is going too far for this one. Not too long before we see an Assassin'*s Creed costume. Oh wait...
  • Mamudo - March 21, 2012 4:36 p.m.

    Well ain't that something. If I had the game I'd probably download it.
  • Pwnz0r3d - March 21, 2012 4:25 p.m.

    ...seriously? So the ending is that the Normandy crash landed on Pulse?
  • R_U_Guys_From_British - March 21, 2012 4:02 p.m.

    This is so dumb.
  • McSpermie - March 21, 2012 3:39 p.m.

    This shit has to stop.Please people, vote with your wallets.
  • CrashmanX - March 21, 2012 4:06 p.m.

    Wait. What "shit"? It's just costumes for $3. I honestly don't have an issue with DLC like that.
  • McSpermie - March 21, 2012 5:49 p.m.

    It's not how much it costs, it's using your money wisely. If you feel inclined to spend three dollars donate to Wastelands 2, money spent there is much better than on this DLC. This is obviously just a cash grab.
  • sharkweek - March 22, 2012 12:40 p.m.

    If you don't like it do not buy it but ranting about how its an evil cash grab is pointless. Square-Enix is a business so by it's very nature everything it does is a cash grab. There is nothing sinister going on to get upset about its just business.
  • Cyberninja - March 21, 2012 4:07 p.m.

    No one's going to buy this seeing as there isn't alot of overlapp between the fans of the games.
