Yesterday, the Dutch version of OPM released here with a big feature on Final Fantasy XIII. There was a 2 page interview and someone over at NeoGAF translated an interesting part into English:
Is the European version identical to the Japanese version or will the western version get extra content for the long wait?
Kitase: At first we had plans to release the game simultaneously worldwide, so we had the intention to deliver identical version between the regions. When we noticed that we wouldn’t make it, we decided to release the game as fast as possible in the west after its release in Japan. We initially had doubts to add extra content to the western version but then it would have taken the international version more months of delay. We did prepare a DLC but it will arrive a little later in the west.
There are rumors floating around about a New Game + amongst other things in the DLC, but keep in mind that even the above translation is a rumor until someone scans the pages.
Since I live in Belgium and speak Dutch fluently, I’ll try to obtain this magazine and scan it. I’m also writing a review for this game based on the Japanese version which I played this month. If everything goes according to plan, it will be posted early next month.
