Lightning Returns Demo out Today

The playable demo for the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has been announced for release in advance of the full game release next month. Earlier we announced the added Amazon pre-order bonus which will give players access to the Summoner’s Garb DLC. In addition to this, with the announcement of the Demo, Sony has announced that folks who play the demo on PS3 will get exclusive free DLC for the game:

  • The demo is of course free.
  • Just for playing, you get the PS3 exclusive DLC — Utsusemi Samurai garb. Again, for free.
  • Just for posting your score after the final battle, you’ll get more free DLC. As a note, this DLC will never be available aside from doing this.
  • As a reminder, all pre-orders will grant you access to the Cloud Strife DLC!

It is unknown if Microsoft will offer any similar DLC with the XBox 360 demo.

The PlayStation Store will update later today with the demo, and you can pre-order the game now for PS3 and XBox 360. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be available on February 11, 2014 in North America.
