A while back, Square Enix said that it didn’t have plans to release downloadable content for its highly anticipated Final Fantasy XIII, because such a move would suggest that the game wasn’t completed at launch. Well, according to RPGSite (via VG247), Square has apparently changed its perspective on DLC, or at least the prospect of DLC, for its upcoming RPG.
However, as FFXIII Producer Yoshinori Kitase explains, the DLC won’t be used to expand the game’s story, but rather will simply offer new gameplay opportunities.
“We are exploring the option of downloadable content, perhaps adding new areas, items or enemies, but these would not be expansions to the story, only the gameplay. The entire story of FFXIII will be on the disc.”
Anyone have any strong feelings for or against DLC for Final Fantasy XIII? Would you prefer it to be story-based, or is gameplay-only the way to go?
