Final Fantasy XV DLC Has Been Influenced by Bloodborne, Square Will Consider Making Luna Playable
We knew that the Final Fantasy XV DLC would revolve around Noctis’ companions (Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto) and last week we learned that Square Enix also plans to enable online co-op for up to four players via the Comrades DLC.
Today, we learned even more of the planned Final Fantasy XV DLC thanks to an interview with Haruyoshi Sawatari (Producer, Division 2), who is leading development on the post-launch content. Speaking to French website Jeux Video, he said that there’s a strong demand to be able to play as a heroine like Luna and that they will consider this for a future DLC.
In case you’re not fully caught on the lore, Luna is short for Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, one of the main characters in the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV movie as well as the main heroine in the game. She’s the former princess of the province of Tenebrae and the youngest oracle in history.
The interviewer was also able to catch an early glimpse of the Final Fantasy XV DLC and noted that a passage within a cave felt visually similar to Bloodborne. Sawatari-san replied:
Actually, before joining Square Enix, I worked on Bloodborne. Um, yes I think it looks like that indeed, thank you for noticing (laughs). We are still at an early stage of development, but I expect more exuberant battles.
Final Fantasy XV is out on November 29th, 2016 worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With a development period of roughly ten years, it’s fair to say that this is one of the most anticipated games of all time. Stay tuned on Wccftech for additional coverage leading up to the launch, which is less than a month away now; also check out today’s latest gameplay video.
