Final Fantasy XIII-2 exclusive pre-order bonuses announced

Square Enix has announced a trio of exclusive North American pre-order bonuses for Final Fantasy XIII-2, if you're willing to hand over your gil in advance to retailers GameStop, Amazon or Best Buy. Take your pick among an alternate costume for Serah, a coliseum-style boss battle, or a physical hardcover book that details the events that between FFXIII and XIII-2 in novella form.

GameStop is offering the alternate costume for Serah, although no images of it have been released yet. If mere cosmetic upgrades aren't your thing, Amazon pre-orderers shall receive a boss battle with series-regular Omega, who will join your party as a monster ally after you defeat him. And finally, if you would like something more tangible, Best Buy has the exclusive on the aforementioned hardcover novella, containing an original story that ties together the events of FFXIII and its sequel.

No official word if each of these bonuses will be available for purchase separately after the game releases, but chances are good that both Serah's costume and Omega will be made available at some point, since they were already announced as DLC in Japan.

    I reckon the bonus-costume for sarah will just be her outfit from the original game. Something I'd rather just have as free DLC later down the line. I think the boss-battle and the book sound like the good options.

    if we can get the rest of it as DLC later ill def go with the book. if not then ill probably go with the boss battle and then DL the book from TPB or something... unless Serah's alt costume is a really baws older version of her or something i probably wont even want to look at it...

    I'm going with the book all the way.

    I hope the book comes to Australia, I could not care one bit about the DLC.

    Am I the only one who was hoping for something moogle related for pre-orders? I'll probably go with the book pending more details.

    I'm going with the novella. If the other stuff is DLC then I can wait for it.
  • EnragedTortoise1 - October 4, 2011 5:10 p.m.

    I'll get the book, then. As long as the DLC is available later... I'd even pay a buck for the boss battle. the costume is meaningless to me.
