'Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII' won't feature story DLC

By
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII won't feature story DLC, it has been revealed.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase said that Final Fantasy XIII-2 players argued that some DLC, which expanded the game's story, meant the game wasn't "complete".

Asked which DLC went down well with fans, producer Yoshinori Kitase told Digital Spy: "Obviously the franchise has got a long history of 25 years.

"With XIII-2, some costumes like the Black Mage were very popular, and those items are meant to be 'fan-pleasing', so those ones went down very well.

"Also, some of the DLCs for XIII-2 were additional episodes. Even though we were quite proud of them and they were an extension of the main story, in a sense some people might argue, okay, it means that the main story was not as complete as it [should have been].

"So we took that reaction on board and with Lightning Returns it's going to be a very complete game, so you don't really need any extra storylines or any extras. It's going to be a fully complete game, that's what we're definitely going to do."


Announced last year, the game will feature Final Fantasy XIII heroine Lightning as the sole playable character.

Players will be able to customise Lightning to a greater degree than for past games in the series, including her outfits.

The story will take place across the last 13 days before the end of the world.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be available on Xbox 360 and PS3 this Autumn.
