Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has confirmed downloadable content for the game.

He gave no details on what or when, but told OPM Benelux (via VG247) that "we did prepare a DLC but it will arrive a little later in the West".

Strangely, Kitase was - just a day earlier - reported to have said DLC wasn't being considered for FFXIII at present.

Thankfully, that no longer appears to be the case.

Earlier this month, art director Isamu Kamikokuryou revealed that there had been enough content cut from Final Fantasy XIII to make an entirely new game. An area around hero Lightning's home as well as a secret base for resistence group Nora and a Nautilus Park fairground had been axed to keep the game's size down, we learned.

Whether Square Enix intends some of that content to be reinstated we do not know.

Final Fantasy XIII will be released on 9th March for PS3 and Xbox 360.
