Final Fantasy XIII-2 gets retailer-specific pre-order bonuses

Final Fantasy was around long before the days of retailer-specific pre-orders bonuses but that doesn’t mean it’s above them. As such, the latest entry in the franchise, Final Fantasy XIII-2, will be offering pre-orders bonuses left, right and center.

Head to GameStop for an exclusive costume for Serah, who makes her playable debut in the sequel. Amazon is promising a arena boss battle with the Omega monster, which can be allied with once beaten. Best Buy on the other hand offer Final Fantasy XIII Episodei Novella, a hardback book that bridges the gap between the original game and this upcoming release.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 hits the US on January 31 2012, while Europe gets it on February 3 2012, appearing on both PS3 and 360.
