Final Fantasy XIII producer, Yoshinori Kitase, and director, Motomu Toriyama have revealed that Square Enix currently has no plans to release DLC for the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIII.

Speaking to the US PlayStation Blog, the pair said: "Regarding the DLC content, we feel that the final product is 100% enjoyable… it's the complete package. So we’re not planning any DLC at this time."

They also commented on recent rumours that content cut from Final Fantasy XIII will be added to the game via DLC.

"In regard to the rumoured cut content, we feel it was taken out of context," explained Kitase and Toriyama. "There are a lot of ideas that are brought to the table, and then the team takes the best ideas out of those, and the final product is polished that way. There was content that were 'ideas' that didn't make the final content, but the team isn't looking to release that as downloadable content."

We assume this means there will be no DLC for the Xbox 360 version also. Box art suggesting otherwise could be referring to Avatar item downloads or other non-game items such as themes and pictures.

Final Fantasy XIII is scheduled for release on March 9 for PS3 and Xbox 360.

I find it slightly refreshing these days that there are still publishers who say: "Here's your full-price game, you won't need DLC for it as it's a complete experience."

As opposed to: "Here's your full-price game, though you might need to pay for extra bits we put up as DLC to get the most out of it."
