Final Fantasy XVI DLC Might Happen After All Based on New Naoki Yoshida Interview

Square Enix is considering adding DLC to Final Fantasy XVI after all. This comes after comments from Square Enix earlier this year that there were no current plans to add any more content.

“As you know, going into FFXVI, the one thing we wanted to do is create a full complete story, something you can enjoy from beginning to end one hundred percent without any DLC. And I think we were able to do that,” producer Naoki Yoshida said in a new interview.

“But now we understand that we’re getting feedback from players that have played the game and a lot of players want to see more and we know that and understand that,” he continued. “For us, we’re taking that and then thinking about our options moving forward, so hopefully in the near future we can have something that we can give to you all.”

Back in May, director Hiroshi Takai revealed that there weren’t any current DLC plans for FFXVI, and that Square Enix was waiting to see how fans would react to the game before committing to anything else.

Square Enix also said that it wouldn’t get a Day One patch, but then walked back on that and released one anyway. FFXVI has gotten positive reviews, so perhaps there’s a chance for it to receive more DLC.

In IGN’s Final Fantasy XVI review, we said, “Featuring fast, reflex driven, action heavy combat, Final Fantasy 16 is certainly a departure from what fans may expect out of a Final Fantasy game, but its excellent story, characters, and world building are right up there with the best the series has to offer, and the innovative Active Time Lore feature should set a new standard for how lengthy, story-heavy games keep players invested in its world.”
