Square Enix has a bit of a surprise for you, and that is the fact the game will have some pre-order content bonuses much like other titles! But this content is a bit lopsided in my opinion, because while some of the content is simple DLC, one company happens to run away with the prize in this little pre-order bonus competition.
If you are to pre-order the game from Amazon, you will receive the Omega Boss Battle as downloadable content wherein after completion, the Omega boss will join the player’s party, while those who pre-order from Gamestop will obtain a code for an alternative costume for Serah to wear. Now for the big one, Best Buy pre-orders will net purchasers a hardcover copy of Final Fantasy XIII – Episode i –, a novella that is going to connect the events that occur between FFXIII and FFXIII-2. Seems like Best Buy is the place to put your money for pre-ordering Final Fantasy XIII-2 before it releases on January 31st, 2012.
