Pre-Order Bonuses for Final Fantasy XIII-2

Posted on October 3, 2011 AT 01:05pm

THE BUZZ: Square Enix has announced a slew of retailer specific bonuses you can get by pre-ordering Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Square Enix anticipates FF XIII-2 being a huge hit. Who can blame them, since the original has shipped more than 6.2 million units since its release 18 months ago. So in order to entice you a little more, the company has come up with a series of retailer exclusive bonuses to encourage pre-ordering. Here they are:

GameStop

Receive an exclusive in-game item by preordering at GameStop e/retailers

  • Alternate costume for Serah, visible throughout the game

Amazon

Omega Boss Battle

  • Unique coliseum battle against boss enemy “Omega,” who joins the player’s party afterward

Best Buy

Collectible Hardcover Book

  • FINAL FANTASY XIII – Episode i– novella, an original story that ties together the events of FINAL FANTASY XIII and FINAL FANTASY XIII-2

These preorder initiatives are for North America exclusively and may not reflect preorder content available in other territories.

EGM’s TAKE: We love pre-order bonueses, but the whole retailer exclusive content gets annoying. More companies should take a cue from how Sony handled inFAMOUS 2 and at least include all of the pre-order bonuses in with the Collector’s Edition.

Are any of the bonus items enough to make you pre-order?

Marc Camron somehow survived E3. The crowds were big, the games were loud and somehow he managed to get a sunburn on the top of his big, bald melon. Yet, despite all of this, he had a blast, seeing people he only sees once a year, playing all of the new games, and staying up way past his bedtime. Next year he might even have a beer.
