No DLC for Final Fantasy XIII?

No DLC for Japan launch and "no decision has been made" for overseas, says producer

Final Fantasy XIII fans expecting post-launch DLC could be in for a disappointment, if comments made by Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase are anything to go by.

Speaking to CVG in a recent interview, Kitase told us: "Unfortunately, it has been decided that no DL contents will be available for the Japanese version due out in December, while no decision has been made for the overseas versions."

So - depending on the accuracy of Square Enix's translation - either Japan's not getting any download content at launch, or it's missing out entirely.

While on the subject of online features such as DLC, Kitase said he doesn't feel under pressure to adopt the bulletpoints of Western RPGs such as Fallout 3 and Mass Effect.

"I do not feel any pressure," he said. "We intend to ensure that Final Fantasy titles we produce will be highly appreciated worldwide. Hence we always expose ourselves to inspirations from western products in attempts to digest and apply them for Final Fantasy."
