Rumour – Gilgamesh, Jihl and more coming to Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC

Whispers say the Final Fantasy XIII-2 DLC barrage will not stop any time soon.

Siliconera cites an anonymous source for news that upcoming DLC will add a Coliseum battle with Final Fantasy V’s Gilgamesh.

Players who obtain a crystal from this fight will be able to add Gilgamesh as a monster party member.

The site also names Final Fantasy XIII’s Jihl Nabaat as an upcoming Coliseum character, although it doesn’t make it explicit whether Jihl is expected to be recruitable.

Finally, a villain from Final Fantasy VI is expected to turn up. Kefka is the beloved title’s most prominent antagonist, but there are others.

This week’s console update brought a couple of pieces of new DLC to the RPG – a gambling-focussed pack about Sazh, and some new costumes.
