Loads of content cut from FFXIII - report

Enough to make a whole new game, in fact.

A new report suggests enough content has been cut from Final Fantasy XIII to make an entirely new game.

That's what art director Isamu Kamikokuryou supposedly told an unnamed Japanese magazine, according to Andriasang's translated version of FF Reunion's report (via VG247).

Kamikokuryou said a number of areas were cut from Japan's PS3 release of FFXIII, including a space around protagonist Lightning's home, resistance group Nora's secret base and an amusement park called Nautilus Park.

Square Enix axed the content to preserve the game's balance and keep the game-size down, the report said. Perhaps it could open up downloadable content options in the future?

Square Enix couldn't be reached for verification.

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