Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama may have finally spoken out on whether or not DLC is on the way for the RPG.

Spoiler: it’s not.

“Regarding the DLC content, we feel that the final product is 100% enjoyable… it’s the complete package. So we’re not planning any DLC at this time,” said one of the pair; it’s not made clear who said what in the interview.

They also said the cut content from the game that was mentioned a while back was taken of context. Goddamn that context.

“In regard to the rumored cut content, we feel it was taken out of context. There are a lot of ideas that are brought to the table, and then the team takes the best ideas out of those, and the final product is polished that way.

“There was content that were ‘ideas’ that didn’t make the final content, but the team isn’t looking to release that as downloadable content.”

The long-running DLC saga has been active since November, when Kitase said there would be no DLC at the Japanese launch in December.

What followed was a would-they/won’t-they release DLC situation that near enough turned into a will-they/won’t-they Rachel-Ross affair.

But there’s your answer. Or is it?

FFXIII’s out on March 9 for PS3 and 360.
