AKB48's Yūko Ōshima Co-Designs Final Fantasy 13-2 Costume
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
AKB48 member Yūko Ōshima has designed two costumes for the upcoming Square Enix sequel role-playing game Final Fantasy XIII-2. Ōshima will also star in a commercial for the upcoming game. The commercial will have Ōshima attending a Final Fantasy XIII-2 development meeting and proposing her costume ideas. Ōshima is also acting as a beta tester for the game.
When the commercial begins its broadcast on November 15, the official site for the game's beta testers will post the two costumes and hold a popularity contest. The costume that wins the contest will be used in the game.
Square Enix will release the game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in Japan on December 15, along with a limited-edition PlayStation 3 Final Fantasy XIII-2 Lightning Edition Ver.2 bundle. The United States will then receive the game on January 31, and Europe will receive it on February 3.
