Final Fantasy XIII-2 has Yuko Oshima costume

AKB48 member designs two costumes for Serah.

Yuko Oshima, part of Japanese female idol group AKB48, is not only the face of marketing for Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XIII-2. She’s designing a downloadable costume for Serah, too.

The red costume was made in the theme of Little Red Riding Hood. The black costume was made in the theme of “Exposure and Defense.” According to Oshima-san, she attached small shields to Serah’s body because sometimes she wonders if Final Fantasy characters are able to properly defend themselves with such little armor.

Only one of these designs will make it as downloadable content. Square Enix will open voting at their Judge13 website soon. Commercials promoting the costumes will hit Japanese airwaves starting November 15.
