World of Final Fantasy features a veritable menagerie of famous Final Fantasy characters ranging from the stoic Lightning of FFXIII fame to the swashbuckling Faris from FFV. However, one popular character seems to be missing from the adorable RPG: the face of the very first Final Fantasy-related mash-up himself, Sora. Fortunately for you Kingdom Hearts fans out there, Sora will be making an appearance later this winter as a free DLC Champion summon. The only catch is that he will only be available for a limited time.

At the time, they stated that this was done because the online servers weren't functioning yet, so reviewers wouldn't have access to the complete experience. However, Bethesda has since released a statement announcing that it is now their official policy to send out review copies just one day before release, as "We want everyone, including those in the media, to experience our games at the same time."
