Back in December, Square Enix hinted that downloadable content was being considered for Final Fantasy XIII. Now, a new quote from producer Yoshinori Kitase has somewhat confirmed the inevitability of extra content for the huge RPG. Kitase says, “We did prepare DLC but it will arrive a little later in the west.” The nature of the DLC content or Japanese release dates were not revealed.
“At first we had plans to release the game simultaneously worldwide,” Kitase tells Official PlayStation Magazine. “So we had the intention to deliver identical version between the regions. When we noticed that we wouldn’t make it, we decided to release the game as fast as possible in the west after its release in Japan. We initially had doubts to add extra content to the western version but then it would have taken the international version more months of delay. We did prepare DLC but it will arrive a little later in the west.”
The downloadable content could be in the form of new side-quests or additional chapters to the game. It could also be something completely different. What would you like to see? Tell us in the comment section below.
