The final batch of DLC has finally been released by Square Enix for their fairly successful follow up to Final Fantasy 13, Final Fantasy 13-2. The DLC is all about our favorite heroine Lightning, and her battle with Caius the immortal guardian of the timeline. The DLC is not just an arena battle like the last DLC featuring Lightning was, but has missions to do. Also released is a Snow based mission pack.

The big news here isn’t really that there is DLC, it is what is in the trailer for the DLC. According to the-magicbox.com, the trailer says “Next Prologue – Lightning Chapter: Requiem of the Goddess”, which seems to hint that this DLC is the prologue of the next game Final Fantasy XIII-3. If this turns out to be true, we could be seeing the new direction that Square Enix is heading in with it’s Final Fantasy series. They might be able to combat the extreme length of time between Final Fantasy games with chaptered sequels built with the same engine.

Check out the launch trailer for the DLC below that features a battle between Lightning and Caius:

    I no longer get sad when I hear these kinds of updates. I get excited for them. I cannot wait to see the day SquareEnix crumbles because of these kinds of decisions! XIII-3 is probably the most laughable thing I have heard since they announced part 2.

      Really? because 13-2 improved on nearly ever aspect of 13. So why wouldn’t you want this to happen?

    13-2, improvements. Yeah, big time, seriously that was such an epic story. Brain dead girl fights some guy and dies for some reason. Yeahhhh, time to drop this failed series an move on.

    6 million copies sold is not a failure, it’s actually a huge success

    To be honest, while Final Fantasy 13 disappointed me big time I must say the sequel Final Fantasy 13-2 was one of the best games I’ve played.The only downside of the game is that its just too short, or rather the story stops abrupt without a sign from SE that it definately gets continued in another sequel.

    I guess thats what actually left a bad taste for many people, when it started to get really good and exciting the fun stops. :/

    Anyway, I am looking forward for another quality game, and I hope this one closes the story and has big content without DLC counted in.

    Not sure why people keep cracking on 13. 13 was great.. so what!? so you couldnt quest big deal.People complained about 13 as it was too linear for their tastes. FF 13 had an epic story line compared to other FF I have played.
    If you want a questing game I suggest you go play world of war craft. This need to turn final fantasy into a monotonous questing game is ridiculous. 13-2 was very disappointing. I thought it would tie up loose ends and Fang and Vanille would be saved and what not.. I didnt mind going through all the BS time lines as I naturally assumed this would have some sort of conclusion, but to find out the timeline is majorly screwed due to the goddess being killed and Serah dies… and pretty much everyone else from the first FF 13 is wiped out from existence.. Im a little leary of purchasing 13-3.

    For all you haters out there final fantasy is the greatest game series of all time. so if you don’t like it go play another game and leave the rest of us to do you like it alone. and if you think you could do a much better job of making a game I would like you to go make 1 and see how many people like your game. then if you sell more than final fantasy does then let me know.
