Lightning as Yuna ? Sure, I can buy that.

Lightning as Cloud ? I suppose I can go with that, too.

But Lightning as Lara Croft…?

To celebrate the successful launch of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition , Square Enix has announced some special downloadable content for the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII . It's a Lara Croft outfit, complete with her outfit, climbing ax, and riot shield. It's not the first time a publisher has tried some cross-promotion with DLC, but Square Enix doesn't usually try it.

I'm really not sure if players want Lightning to dress up as Lara Croft. It might just further remind them that in fact, Final Fantasy has become an action/RPG, and this DLC definitely puts the emphasis on action. Of course, the gameplay won't change just because of the outfit, but you get what I mean.

Anyway, Lightning Returns arrives on February 11.
