Last night, Square Enix held a Final Fantasy press event, where they officially revealed the December 17 release date, for a price of 9,240 yen after tax(which is close to $100 - Modern Warfare 2 doesn't seem to bad now, does it?). PlayStation Chairmen Kaz Hirai also spoke about the western release date, saying there would be a 'one season lag', that they game would likely hit in 6-8 months. Kind of a let down when Square was saying Spring 2010 at E3 earlier this year.

Don't like the sound of this. This could mean FF XIV being pushed back into 2011.

Finally, Square will be releasing it's own Final Fantasy-inspired soft drink to promote the FFXIII release, named after the health and magic restoring Elixir's consumed in every Final Fantasy


Here. Drink this and maybe it'll help you forget how lame it is having to wait so long in between Final Fantasy titles. I hope it's worth the wait.

Kaz Hirai who discussed the history of Final Fantasy on the PlayStation and announced that there would be a PlayStation 3 bundle with Final Fantasy XIII when the game launched.


That'll be cool for some people thinking about getting a PS3 for FFXIII and FFXIV.

My channel with FFXI battle music and hard to find songs that were not even released on Original Soundtracks.

I also plan on uploading FFXIV music when the game is released.

I think the author of that article is a little confused. It is still stated for a Spring of 2010 release.

Quote:
Speaking at tonight's Final Fantasy XIII event in Tokyo, Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada has said "In the past, it's taken a year or half a year to release our games abroad, but this time we are aiming for an international release this Spring".

FFXIII is coming in 6-8 months from now, or after JP release?

To me it sounds like the former, which would mean we should still see it next spring.

That's how I took it as well. Or at least I hope that's what was meant.

One season lag = spring

At least we'll find out how good the game is by late December when importers talk about it. Hey did you guys hear this? We won't get the japanese voice acting on the NA/EU version because it wouldn't fit on the X-Box 360's DVDs. So to be fair it won't be on the PS3 version either. Also older areas of the game may not be accessible because there would be too much disc changing on the 360 version. Therefore it'll be the same on the PS3 to be fair to Microsoft. What a shame.
