Square Enix have just revealed details of pre-order bonuses for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. You may remember our coverage from E3 that showed off the various outfits Lightning could wear (http://home.eyesonff.com/lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii/150569-lightning-returns-shes-dressing-up-you.html) - one of them paying homage to Summoner Yuna. Well, the homages don't end there. The pre-order bonus for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is none other than Cloud Strife's SOLDIER outfit!

Complete with a Buster Sword,Soldier Band and victory pose and fanfare - you can effortlessly pull off the full Cloud look as you try to save the world! Perhaps emotional frailty will come included as standard too...

For more images and details of the offer head on over to the PlayStation Blog (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/07/02/get-clouds-buster-sword-uniform-in-lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii/).

Lightning is the female Cloud, so this makes sense. That's probably why SE loves her so much.

More proof that she's the female cloud. The victory fanfare is a nice touch too.

I never pre-order, mainly because I never normally have money to do so.

Damn it as well, as that actually looks pretty amazing.

I think I'm going to kill someone if the preorder bonuses are anything more than just time limited exclusives.

*sigh* Damn...you got me Square :(. I put down a pre-order :cry:

I'm not so much a fan of the more recent Final Fantasies, but I love this new spin. Well done, SE.

Going to pre-order soon! If anything they could also be teasing fans of how Cloud's outfit and fanfare will look with its graphical update. :p

That single shoulder pad is even more glorious than I remember.

It comes in my head that Lightning could be a Cloud Strife fangirl and wanted to do a cross-dress cosplay of him. Even if that's the case or not, she knows how to rock it! That is awesome! :D

I have to admit, I love the idea of taking it as a cosplay.

Too bad she got it wrong though.


See? Notice anything? Specifically, the belts, and the Buster Sword.

Man, I loved the original Buster Sword. The new one just doesn't compare.

don't they have a yuna outfit as well for lightning? I know why they are doing this. During our PR Q&A with Kitase and Toriyama someone had said to them that "a lot of fans liked the older series over the newer entries like XIII and XIII-2, what would they do to try to bring back the older fans?" And he was a bit offended by it and didn't really answer. Then suddenly now we have yuna and cloud outfits. COINCIDENCE? I think not.

Meh, Wall Market Cloud is still prettier.
