Octopath Traveler has no planned DLC because the title is a 'complete game,' says producer Masashi Takahashi.
Square Enix's Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch won't be getting any DLC because it will release as a fully complete game, says the studio.
"We haven’t even thought of having DLC," producer Masashi Takahashi said in an interview with Dengeki Online (via Siliconera). "The retail version is a complete game.”
Takahashi also confirmed that there would be New Game Plus, saying that the studio has made it so that "you can finish the game in one playthrough," but "depending on the order you go about things, the difficulty will organically change."
The difficulty level seems to be dependant on location, so if a player heads to a tougher area earlier on in the game, they'll be in for a harder time than someone who visits the same area later.
Takahashi also said that the main questline would take around 50-60 hours to complete, extending to 80-100 hours if players mopped up all of the side quests and everything else that the game has to offer. They can even beat the entire game solo, "without recruiting any other characters."
The Octopath Traveler Prologue Demo is available on the Switch eShop now. The title launches for the Switch on July 13. You can check out our hands-on preview for more on the game.
