In some surprising news, Square Enix has announced new Final Fantasy 15 DLC based on the Naruto Shippuden anime and will be part of the season pass. The company didn’t state much aside from the fact that costumes from the series would be coming to the game. These costumes are being done to celebrate the end of Naruto, so having extra outfits to wear is quite nice.
Not many details were given as of this writing, though it was confirmed that Noctis would have a Sasuke Uchiha outfit. Sasuke and Noctis have always been compared to one another, especially after the recent update buffed the character’s spells, so it’s a match made in anime heaven. Also worth noting is that Noctis moves like Naruto’s father, the Fourth Hokage, so he could also get his outfit.
The Naruto-themed Final Fantasy 15 DLC will supposedly have new spells based on the jutsu of the show. The Chapter 13 rework update greatly increased Noctis’ Alterna magic, which looks like the Mangekyo Sharingan. More attacks like the Rasengan and Chidori will also be coming, though they will take up a lot of MP.
Players not into the full Naruto experience can also just settle for the headband from The Village Hidden in the Leaves. Characters like Naruto and Sasuke sported these in the original series, so Noctis and his squad can do the same. It should be a fun DLC pack that fans of the game and anime will really appreciate the extra content when it comes out.
More Anime DLC?
We’re still not sure when this Final Fantasy 15 DLC pack will be coming out, but Square Enix clearly stated it would be soon. The game’s director expressed interest in making more anime-themed DLC for the game, depending on the success of the Naruto Shippuden DLC. If players want more anime DLC in the game, they should consider getting this pack, whenever it comes out.
Fans that want a proper anime experience can play Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Players that want all the DLC can get the Road to Boruto version of the game, which is a much cheaper option. Detailing the conclusion of the Naruto Shippuden anime, it’s a great way to experience the anime and a fun fighting game to boot.
Final Fantasy 15 is available now on the PS4 and Xbox One. The US$29.99 season pass is also available now, giving players instant access to the DLC when it comes out. Episode Gladiolus is also available now.
