As translated by gaming website Gematsu, Tabata explained that the development team of "Final Fantasy XV" made a deliberate decision with regard to the direction of Chapter 13's content. He admitted that they failed to anticipate the amount of stress inflicted on the player while running through the chapter. The March update will resolve the issue by providing better gameplay experience.
Meanwhile, Square Enix is also introducing a new DLC episode that is focused on Gladiolus who is a companion of Prince Noctis and a party member in FFXV.
