It's the rain transformed. Wait...

So the whole reason Lightning wears so many different outfits in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is that each outfit brings different abilities into battle and you can easily switch between several of them in a single fight. Then it would make sense that the game's pre-order bonus is one such outfit... and this one will be familiar to, oh, everyone. Pre-order and you'll get Cloud Strife's (Final Fantasy VII) SOLDIER garb, complete with a Buster Sword, a Soldier's Band, and even Cloud's victory animation and fanfare, for Lightning.

Though it's undecided yet as to which abilities will come with this outfit, you can see what it looks like on Lightning in the video here and the newest screens in our gallery below.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII goes on sale for PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 11th, 2014. If you haven't yet, be sure to read Derek's preview below from E3 last month!
