First Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC plans announced

SquareEnix has announced that the first downloadable content for its new role-playing game Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be released next week.

The gamemaker has planned an extensive schedule of DLC for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title, with the Coliseum Battle content pack Lightning & Amodar debuting on February 7th.

By taking part in Coliseum Battles, players can face off against famous enemies and allies from past Final Fantasy titles and recruit them to their parties, while new story episodes will provide additional insights into characters such as Lightning.

The promise of plentiful DLC will help to further bolster the appeal of Final Fantasy XIII-2, which arrives in stores this week.

A direct sequel to the multimillion-selling Final Fantasy XIII, the new game introduces a wide array of improvements, including a larger, more open game world and a revamped battle system.

It is being released in both standard and special editions, with the latter including bonuses such as a soundtrack CD and art cards.
