Octopath Traveler Producer Masashi Takahashi recently had an interview with Dengeki Online, and there he explained why Square Enix’s upcoming game will not be getting any DLC in the future.

Takahashi-san said that Octopath Traveler will launch as a complete product, so there won’t be any DLC at all.

Besides mentioning the lack of DLC, Takahashi-san talked about other elements of the game.

The main quest will take players around fifty-sixty hours to complete. In testing, it took between eighty and a hundred hours to complete all the sub-stories, optional dungeons and other elements included. A new game plus will not be available, because the game is designed to be fully completed in one playthrough.

Octopath Traveler releases on July 13 for the Nintendo Switch. If you haven’t seen what the game is all about, then you can check out our preview of part of the game right here. There is also a Prologue Demo on the Nintendo eShop for those who want to play it for themselves.
