Thanks to the magic of intracompany synergy, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 will see a DLC costume lifted from the Tomb Raider armoire when it debuts later this month.
According to publisher Square Enix, heroine Lightning will receive the same costume worn by Lara Croft in 2013's Tomb Raider. Likewise, the DLC will swap out Lightning's typically over-designed fantasy weaponry in favor of more pragmatic gear: a survivor's axe and riot shield. Though Square Enix was kind enough to provide the above trailer demonstrating the DLC costume in action, it fails to mention what sort of price point (if any) will be attached to the downloadable addition.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 is slated for North American release on February 11. Australian and European releases will follow on February 13 and 14, respectively. All versions of the game, regardless of region, will receive this Tomb Raider DLC.
