This is Ultros. And his buddy, Typhon. Be careful. They'll blow you away.
Ultros and Typhon are part of a new downloadable content pack for Final Fantasy XIII-2, the role-playing game that Square Enix released earlier this year for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You might recognise the two goofy villains from Final Fantasy VI, where they look a lot more pixelated. Ultros is a recurring villain in the classic Super Nintendo RPG. Typhon, his quiet pink buddy, blows you and your party off an airship. They're not very nice.
DLC buyers will be able to fight Ultros and Typhon in Final Fantasy XIII-2's coliseum, Square Enix officially announced today. Beat them and they'll join your rowdy gang of monsters.
Square Enix also sent over some new photos of the Mass Effect costume DLC we saw yesterday. And as much as I hate the idea of aesthetic downloadable content, I have to admit it looks pretty damn good.
The publisher did not mention when these DLC packs will be out in the US, but they hit Japan on March 27.
