Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII preorder incentives revealed

There’s nothing like a good preorder incentive, is there?

‘Buy your game with us and we’ll give you a pretty rose and a key to a treasure chest hidden somewhere within 50 meters.’

‘Pffft, screw that. If you come to us, we’ll give you a Bacon Sandwich and a Tootsie Roll.’

‘YOU BE CRAAAZAAAY! I offer Batman’s Cranial fluid  plus all of the above. BUY ME!!’

This happens a lot and will also be happening for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Though the incentive will be slightly different…

Due for release next year on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, those who choose to preorder the game now will receive two key preorder incentives.

The first is the creatively titled Pre-order bonus pack. This includes a limited edition steelbook, including a download token that gives access to Cloud Strife’s gear from Final Fantasy VII. This will also include Cloud’s Buster Sword and the Soldier’s Band. Even Cloud’s victory pose and fanfare have been recreated for the game. This will be available to use at the launch of the game. More specifics surrounding Cloud’s outfit and weapon will be announced at a later date.

Lookie here…

There is also the Lightning Samurai Set. This is themed around Samurai Warriors and this is a three-set garb collection. Players can become a Shogun, Sohei Saviour and Flower of Battle through unique items.

The game releases February 2014.
