A lot of fans of the series felt cramped by FF13’s storyline that didn’t really let players explore until near the mid-point of the game so most breathed a sigh of relief when they heard that the game would be supported by DLC down the road.
On December 17, 2009 the director of the game, Motomu Toriyama wrote on the game’s website “The world of Final Fantasy XIII is starting from here on out.” A little bit of a stretch but gamers are a hopeful bunch right? He went on to say that players who held onto their copies of the game would receive “good things.”
Well the world turns and in a recent interview with a Japanese game magazine Toriyama said, “We had plans for DLC, but those plans disappeared. Apologies!”
This ontop of the fact that Square Enix also came out and said there was enough of FF13 left on the cutting room floor to make another game in of itself must have frustrated more than a few fans out there. Looks like Square is moving on with the Final Fantasy train and hoping that people will meet them at the next gate.
