Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is out this week in Japan, but you won't need to import the title to hear Japanese voice-overs. Square Enix announced this morning that fans can download the Japanese voice-overs as DLC for the English version, and this pack will change the lip-synching accordingly so the characters don't look unnatural when talking.

 

For the first two weeks after release (February 11th in North America), this DLC will be free, after which it will become paid content.

i am surprised more games do not do this. Ni No Kuni gave you the option when it did the system install of which language you wanted the game to be in and then would install the requested language. There was no download needed but it was nice to have the option. Most games just give you the localized content.

Yeah I have a great appreciation for dual audio, only exceptions I can think of are The Big O and Cowboy Bebop where the English sounded better. In Sonic Adventure there was also dual audio content also which was really mind blowing at the time when I first played it. It gave a different feeling to the game altogether.

Because they can't always give you the option to have dual audio. Mainly due to legal things, from what i've heard.

I thought it was more about space on the disc. I'm sure there may be some licensing issues in some cases too.
