Update: Square Enix has released the first downloadable content (DLC) package for Final Fantasy XIII, which includes two new costumes (PSICOM Huntress Uniform and PSICOM Raider Uniform).
SCEA's Senior Vice President of Publisher Relations Rob Dyer has announced that Final Fantasy XIII is on store shelves today, and includes a PS3 exclusive bonus offer for Final Fantasy XIV.
To quote: The FINAL FANTASY franchise has long been synonymous with the PlayStation brand - who could forget FINAL FANTASY VII on PSone and FINAL FANTASY X proved to be a landmark achievement when it launched on PS2.
And, now we have the highly-anticipated FINAL FANTASY XIII for PlayStation 3 hitting store shelves today.
For those of you headed out to pick up your copy, we're happy to announce that FINAL FANTASY XIII for PS3 offers an exclusive bonus offer for FINAL FANTASY XIV.
Some of you may remember the announcement we made at our E3 press conference last June, but just a reminder that PS3 will be the only console you'll be able to play FINAL FANTASY XIV when it launches in 2010.
Players who purchase a copy of FINAL FANTASY XIII for PS3 will receive a FINAL FANTASY XIV secret in-game item and be able to enter for a potential opportunity to become a beta tester for FINAL FANTASY XIV for PS3.
Included inside copies of the initial production run of FINAL FANTASY XIII for PS3 are Campaign Codes printed on a special SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS Point Card. Players can register at SQUARE ENIX MEMBERS and receive a code to unlock the special FINAL FANTASY XIV limited offer.
