Square Enix confirmed today that Final Fantasy XIII will be out on December 17th at a Japanese press event. That’s in Japan, Square Enix’s Yoichi Wada did talk briefly about the international release, though:
“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”.
Not too bad I guess, especially considering it’s priced at 9240 yen with tax, which works out to be about $100 USD, which is crazy. At least we’ll be paying a bit less.
