A few months ago, Square Enix and Ubisoft announced a crossover between the Final Fantasy and Assassin’s Creed franchises that would allow players of Final Fantasy XIII-2 to don the outfit of Ezio Auditore. The release date for that downloadable content has now been announced, as well as several new features.
Ezio’s Assassin robes will be available for purchase on April 10 in Japan for 240 Microsoft Points or 300 yen, and can be worn by Noel Kreiss. Additionally, a new costume for Serah Farron, titled Exposure and Defense, will be made available for free that same day. The latter outfit was designed by Yuko Oshima before the game’s release. Both outfits can be seen above, courtesy of Famitsu magazine.
In addition to cosmetic updates, two new battles for the game’s Coliseum will be released on April 10 as well. The first battle allows players to fight against famed Final Fantasy character Gilgamesh, who will join the player’s party as a Commando when defeated. The second battle pits players against PuPu, a blue creature originally seen in Final Fantasy VIII; when defeated, it will join the player’s party as a Medic. The Gilgamesh boss fight will be available for 320 Microsoft Points or 400 yen, while the PuPu boss fight will be sold for 160 Microsoft Points or 200 yen. Final Fantasy XIII-2’s incarnation of Gilgamesh can be seen above, courtesy of Famitsu magazine.
While these additions to the game may not amount to much for some, there is good news for fans eager to learn more about the game’s plot. Square Enix has promised that a new scenario for the game, titled Lightning: Requiem of the Goddess, will be released sometime in May. The April 10 DLC has yet to be announced for North America.
