Rumor: DLC Set For FFXIII, "Arrive A Little Later In The West"
Some of you have been wondering if the North American and European versions of Final Fantasy XIII would boast extra content due to the delay. You know, if Square-Enix has three extra months between the Japanese and US/European launches, might they toss in a few extra goodies?
Well, the thing is, three months really isn't enough time. According to a NeoGAF poster who has supposedly received the latest edition of the Dutch PlayStation Magazine, the version released in March for the US and Europe should be the same as the one released in Japan last December. Square-Enix was actually shooting for a worldwide simultaneous launch but obviously, that didn't happen, and any new content will take the form of DLC later on. However, there is some confusion in the words by Square-Enix's Yoshinori Kitase, as you can see by the comment:
"At first we had plans to release the game simultaneously worldwide, so we had the intention to deliver identical version between the regions. When we noticed that we wouldn't make it, we decided to release the game as fast as possible in the west after its release in Japan. We initially had doubts to add extra content to the western version but then it would have taken the international version more months of delay. We did prepare a DLC but it will arrive a little later in the west."
The translation may be a little broken because we have difficulty with that sentence- "We initially had doubts to add extra content to the western version but then it would have taken the international version more months of delay." It's the "but" that's messing us up, as you can see by reading it. But at least we know that downloadable content will be on the way, although we have no idea what form it might take. Guess we'll just have to wait.
