Final Fantasy XIII leading lady Lightening will be appearing in FFXIII-2 as a DLC character.
That's according to the latest issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang), who reports that players will meet the character in the coliseum battle area, and can unlock her as a playable character by defeating her in battle.
The magazine also reports that Square will have some additional surprises in store, including "secret story episodes" for her, although these details are yet to be officially confirmed.
Official Xbox Magazine US recently delivered its Final Fantasy XIII-2 review, awarding the game a 9/10 and claiming it "fixes pretty much every point of contention" from the original game.
A demo's now available on Xbox Live and PSN.
