Live events were held in different retailers in Japan to celebrate the breaking-the-million-members-mark of the Square Enix Members club. The staff of Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Type-0 attended these events and discussed about different stuff such as the performance of Type-0 on PS Vita, the possibility of a Type-0 sequel, some info on the deleted content of the game and some things being considered for XIII-2′s DLC. They were able to discuss these points through the Q&A portion in these events.
Hajime Tabata has stated that Type-0 is looking good and working very well on the PS Vita. Regarding a sequel, he said that if they were to make one it would not directly follow Type-0′s story although he has implied that a sequel would only be made if the fans demanded for one. Proceeding on the Q&A part, he was asked about the characters’ names being based off cards having actual real names and has answered that at first they considered giving them real names but has decided to just keep their code names to make them more mysterious. It was also revealed that during the game’s development they had plans on including a feature where the characters can be controlled to experience dorm life but was cut due to volume issues.
As for XIII-2, Kitase is considering the possibility of releasing Type-0 DLC outfits for the main characters and having FFXIII’s playable characters playable in the game through DLC. They are listening to what the fans want, and says to expect on hearing more info about the DLCs after the game’s release.
