Before you guys go crazy in the comments, here's what your pre-order will get you:
When you preorder LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII, you will receive the exclusive Cloud Strife SOLDIER 1st Class DLC - straight from Final Fantasy VII - for free! So you'll get the SOLDIER 1st Class Uniform, Buster Sword, and Soldier Band... but not Cloud's blocky hands.
We've put together a short gameplay trailer that shows off the DLC set and how it helps Lightning get to level 99 quicker. Watch it below of this post. Go ahead, we'll wait.
Did you catch the last bit? The victory fanfare comes with the Cloud Strife SOLDIER 1st Class DLC pack when you pre-order, as well!
26w ago - Square Enix Online Content Producer Ben Bateman posted up an E3 2013 trailer video today announcing that Final Fantasy XV is coming to PS4.
To quote: Moments ago, we took to the stage at our exclusive pre-E3 Future of FINAL FANTASY event to confirm to press and fans alike the news you've all been eagerly waiting for - FINAL FANTASY XV is in development for PlayStation 4!
Previously known as FINAL FANTASY Versus XIII, the game has been expanded to take full advantage of the PlayStation 4 capabilities, to bring you a FINAL FANTASY game that will surpass your expectations.
At the core of FINAL FANTASY XV we're still retaining the main concept, world and story of our original vision. Armed forces of Niflheim launch a devastating assault upon the Kingdom of Lucis, casting Crown Prince Noctis and his comrades out of their homes and into the fray.
But the game has evolved to include improved action elements, gameplay and a completely new level of beautiful graphical quality, all thanks to the capabilities of the PlayStation 4.
But don't take my word for it, have a look at the stunning trailer above and we guarantee your jaw will hit the floor!

To quote: Have you been counting down the minutes until Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII? If so, you're definitely in luck as we have a slew of updates for you.
If you've been asleep since last September when we unveiled the game, here's the gist of it: The world of Gran Pulse is sinking into the sea and what remains is Nova Chrysalia.
With only thirteen days remaining until the end of the world, you have full control of Lightning and it is your mission to save as many souls as possible.
Along the journey, you will encounter familiar faces and engage new foes in all new lands. Now that you're caught up, you're ready to watch the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trailer - right here!
A couple things to note: First is the return of Snow Villiers, with a completely new look. He's got new hair, and equal if not more abundant amounts of swagger.
Why are Snow and Lightning at odds now? What has transpired over the time between these two former allies? Sorry, but you'll just have to wait a bit to find out these secrets.
