With over 80 costumes for Lightning to choose from, it’s only a matter of time before the lot of them are revealed. Two bonus costumes in particular have been revealed today, which also include new weapons and shields for her to use.
Ordering the game through HMV and Lawson in Japan will grant access to the Vajra Bodhisattva – the armor of a wise ruler who honored the heavens and loved his nation, and stuck to the ways of benevolence in a world of wars. The weapon that comes with this Schema is called Treasury Palace – forged as a prayer to the Gods, it was once the cross-shaped lance of a ferocious monk unparalleled in spearmanship. Also included is a shield by the name of Warrior’s Return. It’s a robust shield covered with a rivet of steel, it is said that it could deflect even a knight’s assault.
Those who purchase the first pressing of the game’s original soundtrack will get the Fushikaden outfit – said to allow Lightning to fight as though in a graceful dance, the flowers of a turbulent time fly as you battle in a noble woman’s armor. Direct Heart Shadow is the weapon and Charming Folding Screen is the name of the shield.
