In a recent interview with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase, French Final Fantasy fansite FFDream confirmed that the Coliseum in Final Fantasy XIII-2 will return in “some form”. While no specifics were given if the Coliseum will serve the same purpose, it looks likely that Lightning will return to it at some point in her final journey.
The Coliseum, beyond the flow of time, was home to a multitude of DLC battles that followed Final Fantasy XIII-2’s original release in January of last year. This included Final Fantasy XIII series characters such as Jihl Nabaat and Snow Villiers — but classic Final Fantasy monsters such as Ultros, Omega, and Gilgamesh joined the fray. The following is a list of downloadable episodes currently available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live:
$2.99/240msp Omega, Bringer of the End
$2.99/240msp Lightning & Amodar, Operation XIII-2
$2.99/240msp Jihl Nabaat, A Study in Elegant Death
$3.99/320msp Ultros & Typhon, Uninvited Invertebrate
$3.99/320msp Gilgamesh, Clash On The Big Bridge
$1.99/160msp PuPu, Take Me to Your Leader
$3.99/320msp Snow Villiers, The One You Love + Valfodr, No Mercy for the Judged
