Final Fantasy XIII-2 Rumor: Has Poor Sazh Been Reduced to Download Content Status?
First bits from this week's Dengeki PlayStation have leaked out, as usual a couple of days ahead of the magazine's release. It appears that the magazine has some big news for Final Fantasy XIII-2.
First, a review. The magazine gave the game an S rating. This is from the magazine's letter grade scale, where S is the top (followed by A, B, etc.).
The magazine also usually gives major games the full four person review treatment with each reviewer giving a score out of 100. Numbered scores haven't leaked out for FFXIII-2 yet, but we'll be on the lookout.
But forget about the review scores, here's a hot bit about the game that we're going to treat as a pseudo rumor until we've seen more ("pseudo" because it's probably true, but we want some context). The magazine apparently has an interview or Q&A where they ask if Sazh (whom you'll recall is the guy with the afro and baby Chocobo) won't appear in XIII-2. The reply is that "Final Fantasy XIII-2 will continue after release, so look forward to later."
This seems to suggest that Sazh will be added to the game as post release download content, meaning Square Enix is planning more substantial content than the monsters and costumes that have been announced thus far.
We'll hopefully have closer look at Dengeki's coverage of XIII-2 later in the day, so be sure and check back!
