Square Enix will be making the wait for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII a little bit more bearable. Impatient Lightning fans can download the demo for Lightning Returns from the PSN store and Xbox Live Marketplace today. And just to sweeten the deal even more, the demo for the PS3 version unlocks yet another costume for Lightning called the Utsusemi Samurai seen above (see below for a different angle). This costume is exclusive to the PS3 demo.
But wait, says the overly excited announcer, there’s more! This demo highlights many features of the final game including the Outerworld feature. It lets you post messages onto social media networks directly from within the game. If you beat the boss at the end of the demo and post your score using the Outerworld feature, you’ll get another costume: the Siegfried Garb. It’s based off one of the bosses from Final Fantasy VI (or III in America). This costume is available for both versions of the demo.
None of the costumes mentioned will be playable in the demo itself. Instead they will be available for use in the final retail version. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII hits retail on February 11 in North America, February 13 in Australia, and February 14 in Europe.
