Yes ladies and gentlemen, Costume A has won
and I am dissapointed in all of you. It beat Costume B, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ by a massive difference, 16,927 votes to B’s 10,678.
Square Enix and AKB48 have confirmed that Yuko Oshima will be wearing the Exposure and Defense costume at the Final Fantasy XIII-2 Launch Event. Hope it’s not too cold.
The Exposure and Defense costume will be released over PSN and Xbox LIVE for Free, but the date of the release has not yet been set. We’ll let you know when it’s announced.
Just a general reminder to everyone, Square Enix’s competition to vote of one of the Serah Costumes designed by Yuko Oshima will be ending in three days! So if you haven’t got your vote in
or you want to go cheat a few votes in for Costume B then get to it!
Currently, the votes sit hugely in favour of Costume A, with 14419 votes, towering over Costume B which is at 9582.
The website to vote for your favourite of the two costumes for Serah that AKB48 member Yuko Oshima designed has opened earlier today.
For any non-Japanese speakers, all you have to do to vote is to click on the big button next to the picture with A or B in it. The two buttons in the top left on each costume are the Original Sketch, and the Proper Design.
Currently leading the vote is the rather stylish Military Suit, leading over Red Riding Hood by 2299 to 1591. The voting will be open until the 3rd of December.
Also an extra minor note, but Ms. Oshima will most likely be cosplaying the winning costume at the XIII-2 Launch Event.
AKB48′s Yuko Oshima will not only star in Final Fantasy XIII-2′s commercial in Japan, but will also be co-designing costumes for the game, specifically for Serah. The commercial will feature her proposing her designs to the development team while in a meeting.
As soon as the commercial broadcasts on November 15, the official test play site will hold a popularity contest on the 2 costumes that Oshima designed. The costume that wins the most popularity will be used in the game.
Although she has also designed costumes for the moogle, the actual DLC will only include the costume for Serah as the moogle outfits are just for show.
