Tomb Raider DLC is coming to Lightning Returns next week By Erren Van Duine on February 5, 2014 at 9:35 AM

Lightning’s next set of DLC won’t be from any sort of Final Fantasy title, but from another Square Enix property. Square Enix revealed today that Tomb Raider and Lightning Returns will collide in a set of DLC that will be available next week when the game launches in the west. Lightning will be able to don Lara Croft’s outfit from the latest entry in the Tomb Raider series, complete with her survivor’s axe, and riot shield.

Pricing and further details have yet to be announced, but you can see the outfit in action as well as a dirt-covered Lightning in a new video by clicking here.

    That looks amazing! I love fun crossovers like this. Hopefully she’ll have a Mass Effect costume too, like Serah and Noel got.

  • juma086

    YES, YES, YES. I called this happening in 2012 when it was announced that Lightning would have many costumes. Very good, very good indeed.

    A savior is born.

  • Somber

    YES! By the way Vanille’s voice actor will take an interview! http://lightning-returns-news.tumblr.com/post/75686669874/ffunion-were-doing-an-interview-with-georgia

    “Last One Standing is Me” victory speech 😀

  • Whoa, that outfit is perfect for The Dead Dunes! I like the fact that they added dirt to Lightning so that she looks as gritty as Lara. Attention to detail. I love it. 🙂

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    I really like the simplistic design of this. I think it suits Lightning really well. I really like the end pose as well where she lets out a big sigh similar to what Lara does at the end of a big event :P. Really cool costume can’t wait to get it

    Lightning. Like Lara Croft.

    OMG.

    I love Lara Croft´s voice in spanish (I mean spanish of Spain, I don´t have an opinion about the latin spanish versions because I haven´t heard it xD), and I always, ALWAYS thought that my dreamt spanish voice for Lightning would be the spanish voice of Lara Croft, so…

    … I think this just KILLED ME, I would LOVE to play her with Lara´s outfit, because both girls are sensual, and cool, and amazing, and to be feared, and simply wonderful x)

    Simply… AWESOMEEEE *O*

    So this is a “shut up and take my money Square-Enix” for me xD

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT XDDDDD

    I go to the video, and the content warning went ON, and it asks me to log in to see the video!

    I knew it, Lightning with Lara Croft´s outfit is TOO hot for this world (?) XD

    P.D:. but then again, I can see it… in the Square Enix UK channel… LOL… XD What…?

  • Sapientia

    I can dig it. Oh god, I can so dig it. Two of my favorite female heroines in gaming, and this happens? SE, my money, take it and roll with it~

  • Sothe Zephyr

    MEH….il get it but i doubt il use it when i get ahold of http://www.novacrystallis.com/2013/11/see-the-first-round-of-lightning-returns-costume-dlc-in-action/ these bad boys <3

  • Slickyrider

    Eh, I guess I’ll get it for the sake of collection.

    …I mean, come on, they couldn’t have given her a Rydia DLC outfit or something?

  • XYFEIR

    Someone’s streaming the English version of the game! 😮

  • dwibs93

    Well, I was wishing for a crossover between Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy,,,

  • Somber

    What!? 😮 How could he? 😮

  • Nokuto

    Final Raider? Tomb Fantasy?

  • XYFEIR

    Sorcery I guess. XD

  • dwibs93

    Either will do for me.

  • dwibs93

    Wait, if Lightning Returns has a Tomb Raider costume, does that mean Lightning’s gonna get brutally killed and impaled and fall off stuff constantly?

  • Alleo

    Oh so beautiful *_* I will purchase this a soon as possible.

  • XYFEIR

    Aside from Lightning falling off of some stuff, no lel it’s just a costume.

  • Somber

    Damn I need that talent xD

  • I hope that means that those of us who pre-ordered the game will be receiving our copies soon. 🙂

  • James Stine

    That’s because people who already don’t like the game (without playing it or knowing much about it in some cases) already have their mind made up and are going to complain about a costume in a game they didn’t plan on buying in the first place to give them an excuse to complain, because that’s what people do.

  • XYFEIR

    I hope so! A man can dream ;A;

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    Anyone else getting “This video is private”?

  • That’s weird. It wasn’t private before.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    It is now.

  • Ryuukishi

    You know what else would be an awesome Square-Enix crossover, a Wei Shen costume.
