Final Fantasy 13 Official Release Date

final_fantasy_13

Final Fantasy 13 is coming out this year in Japan for the PS3 on December 17.

The game is a PS3 exclusive in Japan, but the same isn’t true for the international release. I’m curious as to how or why Sony lost the FF13 exclusive for international release. If it were exclusive, this game alone would considerably drive PS3 console sales up.

As further stated in the Sankaku Complex post, it has been suggested that the delayed 2010 international release could be in part due to the Xbox 360 port. It is fairly obvious that porting a game to another console takes time, but I thought the PS3 version was going to be released first anyways?

I’m definitely looking forward to this game and will get it on release day. Another related game that I’m even more anticipating is FF13 Versus; the dark setting seems more appealing to me. Too bad my Japanese skills are at newbie level or else I would be getting this game on December 17.

    @Snark: I think FF8 was the only one I haven’t played yet. Maybe I should play that sometime. =O

    @phossil: Indeed, the graphics are one of the main selling points of the game. Although recent reports say they may not be as good as originally shown, but I’m sure it’ll still be amazing!
