You know that times are tough when Square Enix starts leaning on Final Fantasy VII nostalgia. The publisher refuses to reboot the PSone Classic for modern consoles, but is more than happy to play on your fondness for the JRPG favourite. Not content with the recently revealed Cloud costume for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the Japanese giant has also announced that the franchise’s pink haired protagonist will be able to dress up as series heartbreaker Aerith – complete with flower basket and staff.

The costume is currently only confirmed for Japan, where it will be available as a bonus alongside a V Jump magazine strategy guide. We fully expect this to make its way overseas, though. After all, how else is the publisher going to get the general public to care about the latest instalment in its Fabula Nova Crystallis plotline?
