Free Final Fantasy XIII DLC Arrives

Square Enix has today revealed the first downloadable content (DLC) package for the phenomenally successful Final Fantasy XIII. While a debate has been raging since the game's Japanese launch last year as to whether Square Enix would capitalise on the opportunity to add new content to what is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated games on the current-generation of games consoles, that question has today been answered.

eDIT: Ha, totally misread that, never mind.

Reibooi2257d ago

Ok there needs to be some sort of rule that Avatar items or Home items don't count as DLC.

So misleading. I read the title and think they added new content to the game for free? And it turns out to be nothing.

poontab2257d ago

Yeah I knew about this when I registered, the day the game came out, lame. What I want is to be able to purchase a story for this lame game. I mean this is more like Star Ocean's inbred stepchild with a touch of FFX's lame art direction, masquerading as a FF title. BTW anyone else notice that all the random nameless NPCs look exactly like Blitzball players?

poontab2257d ago (Edited 2257d ago )

Love me some Tonberry.

Hate my Chocobo's long floppy ears, looks like the bass player from Ziggy Stardust.

Edit: oops @2.2 VVVV

vhero2257d ago

Yeah plus S-E have officially come out and said there will be no in game DLC for this title. That is confirmed.

WildArmed2257d ago

yeah.. how is this DLC.

It's like saying OMG, I got a FF13 theme for free... now imma write this down as DLC ...

Don't know what to think about this...I'm assuming something along the lines of Playstation Home avatars? Or even better avatars for PSN? I think the latter would be better, but highly doubt it.

poontab2257d ago

Profile avatars would be great if I didn't already have most of the trophies and notice they don't really look like anything from Final Fantasy. Seriously I'm starting to think I've woke up in some bizzaro world where I'd be more likely to see a Moogle in Star Ocean than FF. Would it have killed them to have a Cactuar, Tonberry, or Chocobo in there? If they did avatars it would most likely be some rock or random shape they started say was FFish about a year ago.

Myst2257d ago

@Poontab: Anything FF related or Square related would be great in my eyes. I bet they could get away with charging 99 cents for them and people would still buy them. Though I kind of doubt they would do something like that, perhaps take some screen shots from Dissidia's inventory of avatar and slap them on PSN. Something like the images presented below.

Personally I think they could use all of the avatars that were used in Dissida and play them up for 50 cents. How many would use Cloud, Seph and the rest? Not to mention they could also put in the 8-16 bit avatars as well. Square is really missing an opportunity by not taking this chance.

Anyone who has registered their copy of FF13 on the 360 will get the avatar clothes however the Psicom outfits doesn't look very nice imo.
I got the FF13 Super Elite and that came with avatar clothes for a male and female and a chocobo. The clothes that came with my 360 are better kept the male one for myself and gave the female one to my girlfriend :-)

So basically there is still no news on actual DLC for this game yet.

vhero2257d ago

PS3 owners get a free FF14 beta invite I know which I would prefer and it ain't no virtual clothing ;).

-MD-2257d ago

How is this news? I clicked this to see some actual DLC.

crck2257d ago

It's not. Its a desperate attempt at getting clicks. Unless DLC stands for downloaded costumes now...

vickers5002257d ago

I hope it's a dynamic theme or a psn avatar and not some lame home costume.
