posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official site for Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII-2 game's beta testers revealed on Saturday the winning costume designed by AKB48 member Yūko Ōshima that will be featured in the upcoming game. The costume will be available as a free downloadable content item for the character Serah after the game has been released.
The website held a popularity contest in November for two costumes co-designed by Ōshima. The winning "Exposure and Defense" costume (pictured at right) received 16,927 votes, and the other "Red Riding Hood" costume (pictured below) received 10,678 votes.
Ōshima previously starred in a commercial for the upcoming game that featured her attending a Final Fantasy XIII-2 development meeting and proposing her costume ideas.
Ōshima is also acting as a beta tester for 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.
