Still, I don't understand why the game just didn't spend longer in development and tack all story DLC onto the main game to flesh things out. Not to mention it seems odd that they went all multimedia with the entire plot. Because it had been in development as Versus XIII for over 5 years, so when they put Tabata in charge, they apparently told him he had 3 years (or something close to that) to just finish it, and was basically forced to release whatever they had at that point. In hindsight it's easy to say they should've just given it more time and money, but you have to remember that at this point in time, Final Fantasy was at the lowest point it had been at in decades. They'd just released 3 quite poorly received XIII games, with the sales figures completely collapsing by the 3rd game (it was the worst selling FF game since Final Fantasy 2 on the NES), and this was happening at the same time as Japan was completely abandoning home consoles. So I think they were legitimately worrying that XV would only sell like 3-4 million, which they openly stated might have ended the whole series. Luckily it ended up selling 9 million, and is the 2nd highest seller in the series (if you exclude remasters), so we now have the luxury of looking back and pointing out the flaws!

It's not really a requirement unless you don't watch the trailers for Versus, or just haven't followed up with the news on the game. You can figure some of it out, sure. But there's key information that you wouldn't understand without watching Kingsglaive. Like why is Luna's brother fighting for the enemy? What happened to the crystal? (it's barely mentioned in the game that they took it to Niflheim), and most importantly, what does the Ring of the Lucii actually do? What's it for, and who can use it? A major event in one of the DLC assumes that you already know that from watching Kingsglaive. Not to mention the Comrades DLC is based on those characters from Kingsglaive, so you need to understand it for any of that to make sense.
