Lightning returns today, literally. Square Enix has announced that the first playable demo for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will launch later today for PS3 and is available now for 360 Live Gold members. Live Silver members will have to wait until January 28. The demo features a battle-heavy trip through the Yusnaa palace alongside Snow. For players that activate the Outworld feature and submit their score for the final fight against Zaltys, the Siegfried outfit will be unlocked in the full version. As an extra bonus, the PSN version will include the Utsusemi Garb DLC in the demo and full version, which includes the Heavenly Fan weapon and the Kaminari shield.
A new pre-order bonus was also announced for Amazon, the Spira’s Summoner pack. The set includes Yuna’s outfit, staff, and victory pose.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be available on February 11 in stores and online for 360 and PS3. A Square Enix Online Store-exclusive version will also be available for $89.99.
