Look into Lightning’s eyes and tell me she thinks that no DLC for Final Fantasy 13 is a problem. She doesn’t seem to care, not even a little bit.
Why? You might ask.
Well according to Final Fantasy 13 producer, Yoshinori Kitase, and director, Motomu Toriyama:
“We feel that the final product is 100% enjoyable… it’s the complete package. So we’re not planning any DLC at this time.”
Depending on your views on DLC this could either be a good or a bad thing. Good in the fact that sometimes DLC just means incomplete content or “we the publisher wish to make more money.” Look at Assassins Creed 2 for a prime example. That game literally had two sections removed, either because they were incomplete or for the sole purpose of milking gamers for more money.
If Square Enix believes their game is “the complete package” (and it should be after this long) then more power to them — at least we’re getting a finished game. If you’re on the other side of the fence then it could be bad – since DLC is a great way to get longevity out of a game with no multiplayer. Mass Effect 2 is a terrific example – since BioWare has long-ranging DLC plans for the series.
Don’t count it out though, if your a fan of DLC then look at the end of their quote “…at this time” which could mean that in six months time there may be something to add.
I’m hard-pressed to think of a way to have DLC for a game like FF13, which from what we have been told is a fairly linear game. Not saying that’s a bad thing in any way, just saying it’s not like they can just throw in some extra missions or add some multiplayer maps.
DLC or no DLC, us gamers here at Game Rant are looking forward to the JRPG giants newest installment in the Final Fantasy series.
What do you think of the idea of no DLC for FF13? Whats your view on DLC in general?
Final Fantasy 13 is scheduled for release on March 9th for PS3 and Xbox 360.
