Final Fantasy XIII-2 'Lightning' DLC coming February 7

Lightning is coming to Final Fantasy XIII-2 next week, Square Enix has announced. Titled "Lightning and Master Sergeant Amodar," this premium DLC pack pits you in a Coliseum battle against the Final Fantasy XIII heroine and her former officer. Once you beat the pair, you can recruit Lightning into your party. A price wasn't disclosed with the announcement, but Andriasang reports that the content will cost 240 MSP ($3) in Japan. Square promises other Coliseum battles to come against adversaries from previous Final Fantasy titles, who can then be recruited into your party. (Here's hoping for Ultros.) The company also reiterated its plans for episodic story content, which will spotlight different characters.
