FFXIII-2 DLC Leak: Brave Players Can Challenge Jihl Nabaat

The Coliseum in Final Fantasy XIII-2 might be one of the biggest draws for veteran fans of the franchise.

We already know that it will play host to some of the most recognizable faces in series history, and if you beat the icons in combat, they'll join your party. For instance, Final Fantasy XIII protagonist Lightning is on the list.

Since that confirmation, fans have been discussing the possibilities. Obviously, Sephiroth and Kefka have been mentioned, along with past heroes like Cloud, Squall, Zidane and Tidus. Square Enix hasn't made anything official beyond Lightning but according to Gematsu citing a Japanese source, another FFXIII character will be part of upcoming DLC: Jihl Nabaat. if you don't remember her, check out the screenshot and see if it'll jog your memory.

There's only one thing that bugs me about this whole setup: as cool as it is to face Final Fantasy characters from past installments, I get the feeling one's party has to be pretty damn powerful to beat such characters in the Coliseum. And at that point, who needs the help? Chances are, I'll have beaten the game before I can beat Lightning, right? Or maybe they won't be that tough... 'crosses fingers'

You're right Ben, my copy came with Omega in the coliseum and he won't be beatable until I'm about done or done with the game. He just annihilates my party. So what good is buying DLC you might not be able to beat or can't use for a very long time right?

I think they expect us to keep playing through it a bunch of times or something. Not much chance of that.

I beat Omega, but I got 0 stars so I didn't unlock him >:(

As for Nabaat, I never liked her in the original game so I doubt I'll get this.

No, I think they expect us to power-level, something FFXIII really DIDN'T allow you to do until after you beat the game (the final Crystarium tier didn't unlock until the last boss was beaten).

That's more of the old-fashioned appeal of FF- you can run around and do what you want to level up an d get stronger, only without the linear shackles of some of the older titles.

I still don't like the idea that I have to power up like mad to get Lightning, though.

Yeah but who really wants to power level in this game? There's already too many battles and no reason to care about your characters or their powers.

The worst thing is, even with the screen shot you put up I still had no idea who she was. I googled her and still don't remember anything about her. The only thing that left an impression in my mind about FFXIII was running around Pulse trying to beat all the really hard monsters. Then I realised how insignificant 13 was for me and sealed the deal on me never buying 13-2.

I know a lot of people really liked both those games, but when I can't even remember some of the main characters, it just means I could not connect in a meaningful way to the characters or story.

I'm with you, too. Took me a bit to remember, but I got it eventually. Pretty lack-luster story. Didn't even stick.

I only beat FFXII once, and I remember most things easily. And that's not exactly heralded as the best story out there, either.

It's starting to sound more and more like I gotta pay an awful lot of money to do everything I would want to in the game. And as Ben pointed out, most of it is end game when I wouldn't even get to use it much anyways.

So in order to get the characters in the Coliseum I have to get 5 stars? Hopefully that is true because I beat lightning and she didn't join my party -____-. I also was thinking it can be that I haven't beaten the game. As in haven't gotten to at least one ending yet.

I beat her 3 to 5 times and 3rd attempt I think I got 4 stars.

This DLC is an example of SE FAIL!!

The way it needs to be:
Choice 1 paid DLC you get any Stadium character with an option of selecting join party even if you are at level 1 and the Stadium character is level 200 or you also have the option of fighting them....cool!

Choice 2 free DLC your only option is to fight the Stadium characters to get them to join party but by then you have beat the game so whats the point?
