The Seventh Ark Dungeon Discovered in Final Fantasy XIII PC Files

By   /   Oct 20, 2014

Final Fantasy XIII, which was released for PC earlier this month, looks to have a hidden area that’s cut off from the main game.

Fans who were messing around with the game files managed to discover an unused dungeon called the Seventh Ark. It appears to have been intended as a DLC by Square Enix that was to be released after launch but is said to be cancelled “because of the great differences between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 network systems.”

According to the data miners, the Seventh Ark includes a Nemesis boss that resembles the fal’Cie Anima from the start of the game. The same interior of the dungeon was eventually decided by the studio to be recycled and used in Final Fantasy XIII-2 for the battle against the demi-fal’Cie Adam.

The Final Fantasy XIII Ultimania Omega mentioned The Seventh Ark as a location having a free battle arena where players were allowed to engage in mini-quests and short gameplay sessions.

It’s unknown as to exactly what drove Square Enix to cut out the Seventh Ark from the final product. There must be something that made them realize it didn’t quite lived up to whatever expectations Square Enix had.

Final Fantasy XIII was released on October 9 for the PC via Steam.
