Square Enix’s Yasunori Kitase announced today at the Play LIVE event held by Sony that the latest Final Fantasy game will feature extraneous content for players to purchase. The original Final Fantasy XIII had no such content, so perhaps this will be a change for the better.
Details of what weapons or costumes will be offered are scarce to nonexistent, but it goes without saying that these will likely be subtle inclusions rather than game-changers. We’ll have to wait and see whether costumes have any benefit other than paid fan-service.
What else is new with XIII-2? Apparently, we will witness the return of fan-favorite events like casinos and chocobo races.
