Ultimate Hits version also incoming.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is getting two new re-releases in Japan this July.

On July 18, both a “Final Fantasy XIII-2 Digital Contents Selection” and “Ultimate Hits Final Fantasy XIII-2” will launch for 5,040 yen and 2,940 yen, respectively.

The latter is simply a “Greatest Hits” version of the game, while the former is more of a “Game of the Year” edition, bundling in most of the game’s post-release download content.

The Digital Contents Selection will include:

Colosseum Opponents

  • Omega
  • Lightning and Lieutenant Amodar
  • Jihl Nabaat
  • Ultros and Typhon
  • Gilgamesh
  • PuPu

Costumes

  • Sera: Summoner’s Garb
  • Sera: Beachwear
  • Sera: White Mage
  • Noel: Battle Attire
  • Noel: Spacetime Guardian
  • Noel: Black Mage
  • Mog: A Wondrous Wardrobe Costume Pack

Weapons

  • Sera: Genji Bow
  • Noel: Catastrophe Blade
  • Noel: Muramasa

Episodes

  • Sazh: Heads or Tails?
  • Lightning: Requiem of the Goddess
  • Snow: Perpetual Battlefield

The Ultimate Hits version will also be made available as a digital download two days prior to its retail release, on July 16, for 2,940 yen on PlayStation Network and 2,000 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE.

An “Additional Contents Selection,” which requires a copy of Final Fantasy XIII-2 to function, will be made available on the same day for 2,100 yen on PlayStation Network and 1,360 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE.

  • LETS PRAY FOR LOCALIZATION

    Oh square enix you never seem to suprise me.

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    I hope E3 comes true but even if it does it could end up being another false promise

  • PrinceHeir

    lol they should have did this with the dual pack last year or at least waited to release all DLC then do dual pack.

    im also wary about the cover with the “Ultimate Hit’s” yellow label that’s been plaguing japan’s game re-releases :(

    • Budgiecat

      That yellow label’s been around since the PS1 era afaik….

    Been waiting for this for a long time now. I can finally play FFXIII-2. I didn’t want to support them with DLCs. I’m glad they made a bundle.

    Nice i never finished Ff XIII-2,so now i can buy Final Fantasy XIII-2 Digital Contents Collection and finish it.

    • Budgiecat

      Don’t support this garbage

  • Elvick

    … just most DLC? :/ Anyhoo, the only DLC I care about is the one related to FFVI. And I already got XIII for cheap, so i wouldn’t buy this if it came over here. I hope it will though, for those who would like it.

    I was kind of annoyed with how Square handled the ending of Final Fantasy XIII-2. It almost seems as if Evangelion 3.0 was based on that.

    • Anime10121

      I hate how they left XIII-2’s ending as TBC when it was a story about Noel and Serah, but the TBC leads to a story about Lightning. I could care less about Light and her supposed “uberness” I want a finish to Noel, Serah, Caius, and Yuel’s story :(

    Sounds more like:

    FF XIII-2:”What should be already inside the game”-Collection

    • Anime10121

      Not really, I guarantee you’re not missing much with this content, I bought most of the extra fights and all the extra scenarios, and i guarantee they are nothing special. The only one that adds anything to the game would be the Lightning one, and thats only in the form of cutscenes, cuz the fight was ridiculously easy and lame, and the scene itself exists only to set up Lightning Returns.

      FF’s never had alternate costumes so those are just cosmetics, and the game has plenty of “ultra bosses” within it already, the dlc just adds a few more. The extra “episodes” pretty much sucked and Snow’s wasnt so much an “episode” more than it was an extended Colosseum battle with cut scenes. So yeah, not missing much either way.

      I did enjoy the actual game though, the DLC, just not so much.

        I just wish the DLC content would have been included in the game from the get go. It would have been much more enjoyable to play it all in one go.

  • Barrit

    Thanks for the heads up! I only see the Ultimate Hits up for pre-order on Playasia right now. I’ll keep an eye out for the DLC collection version.

  • Budgiecat

    DLC for people who probably already bought the DLC for a game they probably finished a long time ago already and could care less about…..

    Good going S-E you idiots…

    I thought this game was dead

    It baffles my mind if someone goes for the “Additional Contents Selection” for that price… A few hundred yen difference…

    Forget about the “Selection” version… Just go for “Ultimate Hits” version and sell off your old one if you wanna play XIII-2…
