Having already announced over a dozen additional sets of costumes to become available as downloadable content for protagonist Lightning, Square Enix has today revealed a new costume that you’ll be able to purchase for use in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy III this month.

Leveraging Square Enix’s ownership of the Tomb Raider franchise, you’ll be able to adorn Lightning in a Lara Croft outfit inspired by the latest entry to that action adventure series, complete with a Survivor’s Axe and Riot Shield – you can check out the filthied up Lightning in the announcement trailer below:

The offer is similar to the cross-franchise promotion seen with games like Hitman: Absolution, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Sleeping Dogs, where clothes and weapons from each game made their way into the other as DLC. Lightning Returns will already include a host of costumes inspired by previous Final Fantasy games – do you think we’ll see more ‘skins’ appear from other Square Enix properties?


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 11th in North America and February 14th in European territories.
