Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has said that Square has no firm plans to release any downloadable content for the highly anticipated RPG as of yet, though hinted it may be on the cards for "future projects."
Speaking to the chaps at VG247, Kitase said via a translator: “As far as DLC is concerned, there is no solid plan at the moment for FFXIII,” adding, “However, we’ve been listening to overseas fans in Europe and North America and are aware that DLC is very popular and something that people really want.”
“So it’s definitely being considered for future projects.”
Square previously touched on the possibility of FFXIII DLC earlier this year, suggesting it would not likely tie directly into the game’s story line, instead focusing on additional content such as items, enemies and areas – that’s assuming it ever sees the light of day, of course.
Final Fantasy XIII is due out on PlayStation 3 in Japan this winter, followed by a western release on PS3 and Xbox 360 in spring 2010. The game will be featured at the Tokyo Game Show later this month.
