Back of FFXIII 360 seemingly confirms DLC

FFXIII 9

The back of the box-art of Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 has all but confirmed there will be DLC for the RPG.

The box shows the game will have “game content download”.

Back in January, art director Isamu Kamikokuryou confirmed there was so much stuff from the game left out, a second title could have been made from it.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase has also been reversing back and forth like a yo-yo on the subject.

In an interview with the Ulitma Guide for the title, he said there ain’t going to be DLC, although it’s possible, before saying there will be new content in an interview published by OPM Benelux.

Amazing. We’ll follow up with Square Enix on Monday morning.

The company confirmed on Tuesday to VG247 the 360 edition will house three DVDs, with disc-swapping kept to a minimum of twice throughout the game.

FFXIII is out on March 9 in the west for PS3 and 360.

Thanks, AGB.

    Oh noes! Something tells me that Microsoft at X10, GDC or E3 2010 will announce that FFXIII DLC is coming to 360 FIRST!!!!!111OneOneOne

    While the 360 getting DLC first is a delicious prospect, it’s highly unlikely.

    That’s not to say MS couldn’t be the first to announce it though. Makes perfect sense to announce it next week.

    Doesn’t mean anything there are plenty of game with that on the back and don’t have dlc and plenty of game without Game content on the back with DLC. Playstation 3 games don’t have that label on the back would be very unlikely they give it just to MS.

    I think MS will announce DLC at X10. Because i don’t understand WHY they are going to have at their own X10 even FFXIII

    It’s a man, man.

    Or maybe it’s just that Cloud looked like a woman, and he(she) looks like Cloud?

    Cloud was sort of a ladyboy to start with though.

    I doubt X10 will ahve much to do with third party’s.

    Myeah I’ve heard about that, I really don’t see the resemblance, must be something wrong with me eh?

    Cloud just looked like a spiky polygon to me…
    (God, those were the days…)

    Gekidami, I dare you to say that to his face, he’ll omnislash you good! :p

    I am sure they ahve quite a lot of 1st/2nd party action to talk about.

    It’s the modern Cloud being referred to: http://images.encyclopediadramatica.com/images/7/73/Nothing_alike_75.jpg

    Um yeah, pretty hard to argue with that pic I guess… oO

    Still looking forward to seeing what tricks she’s got up her sleeve though… :)

    Japanese say that she resembles Solid Snake a lot (in personality)
    As for the DLC i don’t think it will be exclusive to Sony or Microsoft and even it was to one of them no big deal as the things SE said removed from the game(which apparently will be DLC) are nothing to get excited for.

    @4 It’s all part of their marketing campaign…nothing more

    Fuck Microsoft for fucking up this game PLUS them getting DLC over the PS3?

    Fuck you Square Enix. And fuck the 360.

    It IS a hate comment. Deal with it. FF XIII got ruined. At least Versus XIII won’t be ruined by that shit system and its company.

    Edit — It ruined my experience as a hardcore RPG fan. SO much content was cut … NO Japanese voices thanks to the 360′s old format (UPGRADE PLEASE?!). I have so much and too much to complain about. And the DOWNGRADES we’re getting. -_-;; …..

    Stupid Square Enix and their shit promises they made to us …

    Don’t worry man, it was always going to be a disappointment regardless. It’s a Final Fantasy title – it’s par for the course. :-)

    “NO Japanese voices thanks to the 360’s old format”

    Have any other FF games had their Japanese voice tracks included in the western releases?

    #21 4 years ago
  22. Gekidami

    No, but then they only actually had voice in them from FFX from which they were also pushing a single DVD and probably just as strapped for space.

    I just love* how *any* shortcoming of the game is getting blamed by fanboys as the fault of the 360.

    *makes me weep with despair

    They’re using single layer Blu-ray. Unlike other games like MGSIV and WKC they use dual-layer. DL BD is 50GB, so YES they could have added THE EXTRA CONTENT plus THE JAPANESE VOICES.

    -_-;; Fuck the 360. One more time for the love of it.

    #24 4 years ago
  25. Psychotext

    They’re using dual layer, and over 30gb of the total 40gb used is video. Muppet.

    #25 4 years ago

    Oh GREAT. Then add the Japanese voices. That shouldn’t be much now, should it? 360 users can enjoy their game and those that want the Japanese voices can enjoy it on the PS3. Even if FF never added Japanese tracks, there’s a lot of other games that did add Japanese tracks. Audio isn’t as big as video.

    #26 4 years ago
  27. Psychotext

    They could do it in theory, but they wouldn’t be able to use uncompressed audio… and that’s also assuming that they didn’t pad the files out over the drive to improve seek speed (that 40gb number is only for the files we can see in a directory view).

    There seems to be a lot of hate going round the forums for FF 13. The reviews are pretty low considering its FF as well, PSM 3 gave it a %70. Its going to be intresting to see if FF can stand up to Mass Effect etc.

    I think Final Fantasy has probably had it’s day in the west. Normally a big deal would have been made by everyone by now about the game, yet it seems like like any other big publisher release rather than a megaton drop.

    There seems to be a lot of hate going round the forums for FF 13.

    It’s because it’s not exclusive… and I’m not joking either.

    Most of the people complaining about it will buy it anyway, though. FFXII was something of a Marmite game and still sold over 5 million copies, so I don’t think it’s particularly outlandish to expect this game to do similar numbers.
