Square Enix has confirmed a western release for the recently announced Final Fantasy XIII-2 downloadable content.
The first of the content – new outfits – sees Serah slip into Beachwear and Noel suit up in his Spacetime Guardian outfit, given to him by the goddess Etro. They’ll be sold together for $2.99 / 240 Microsoft Points.
The second piece of content – dubbed ‘Sazh: Head or Tails?’ – is Final Fantasy XIII-2‘s first downloadable episode. Players will take control of Sazh, one of the main party members in Final Fantasy XIII, and venture into the Serendipity casino, where two new games, “Chronobind” and “Serendipity Poker,” are now playable. Once the episode is complete, Sazh can join Serah and Noel’s party. The package will sell for $4.99 / 400 Microsoft Points.
Both sets of content will arrive on February 28.

Serah's costume is "Resort Style" and Noel's costume is "Guardian of Time". Both costumes are the same price as all the previous DLCs. They will be available on Feb 21 2012.
The Sazh "story" DLC is an episode called "Heads or Tails" where you play as Sazh but it seems limited to just the Casino area. What the DLC actually does, is that it adds two card games to the Casino. After you complete the DLC scenario, Sazh apparently joins your party as well (???). This DLC is priced at twice the normal price, so expect it to be 6 bucks in the US (600yen in Japan, 400 MS Points). It will be available on Feb 28 2012. This DLC requires an upcoming patch to work, and the player must have the Casino available on the Historia Crux to play it.
