Final Fantasy Type-0 may share a mythology with Final Fantasy XIII-2, but it won't share one thing. In a Q&A post at the Type-0 blog today, director Hajime Tabata said that XIII-2 will not have paid download content.
The game will have some download content, though. Free items will be offered via connectivity with Square Enix Members. Additionally, the summer clothing that can be unlocked in the game's demo will be available to all Square Enix Members.
Other points mentioned in the Q&A include:
The game can be played through on its first go in 40 hours (Tabata said something similar in the latest Gan Gan). However, you won't get everything in such a short period. Additionally, the game has a "another fight," or another side, that will be shown when you play through a second time. Based off Tabata's wording, this seems to be a sizable component.
Alleviating fears about the game's action elements being difficult, Tabata assured that the difficulty is low for the elements required to reach the ending. They've adjusted the game so that those who only play command-based RPGs and aren't good at action games can get through. Additionally, he noted that because this is an RPG, you can raise your character's level, making combat even easier.
Next week, we'll be getting a full version of the game's Tokyo Game Show trailer featuring the Zero theme song.
