Xbox 360 Exclusive Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC Weapon Announced

Square Enix and Microsoft have announced that they will be teaming up to bring an exclusive weapon DLC to the Xbox 360.

The new DLC, a bow weapon for Serah called “Azrael,” has been created through a collaboration between Square Enix and Microsoft, and will be available exclusively for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, on Jan. 31, 2012.

Azrael is named after an angel who represents spirits and death. It is believed to possess the power to change the owner’s destiny, and the player’s Chain Bonus will upgrade when equipped. You can purchase this weapon from Chocolina, the merchant, in Episode 2 or beyond in the main game for 80 Microsoft Points via the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360. Only Serah has the ability to wield this legendary weapon.
