Final Fantasy XIII DLC abandoned by Square

Extensive post-release plans were cut

Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama has admitted that DLC for the game was in the works - but has been scrapped by Square Enix.

Before the Japanese release of the game Toriyama told players to "hold on to their saves from the end of the game" as there would be a few surprises for them later on.

However, in an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Toriyama apologised for teasing FF13 fans with more content and then failing to deliver.

"We were planning to make some DLC, but that plan wound up not happening,"

"I'm sorry!" said Toriyama.


He went on to announce an International Edition of the game for Japan, it will feature English voices, subtitles in a number of European languages and the theme "My Hands" by Leona Lewis.

Dengeki magazine has said the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII will finally see a release in Japan later this year.
