If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 for your Xbox 360 or PS3, then the good news is that you can get an early taste of the game today by downloading the demo on Xbox Live. The demo is also available today on PSN in North America, with a European release expected tomorrow.
According to Square Enix, the gameplay demo will show off the game’s new combat system, as well as Lightning’s many customization options. They have also revealed that activating the game’s Outerworld services and submitting a battle score in the demo will give players access to an outfit based on Final Fantasy 6’s Siegfried that can be used in the full game when it is released on both PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 11.
As an added bonus, PS3 players who try the Lightning Returns demo will also unlock a special Utsusemi Samurai DLC outfit in the full game, which includes a Heavy Fan weapon and Kaminari shield. The Utsusemi DLC will also be available in the Xbox 360 version later in the year.
