The president of Square-Enix, Yoichi ‘Kill-joy’ Wada has told Reuters (via Eurogamer) that we won’t be seeing Final Fantasy XIII in English before April 2010. However, it will be released in Japan on Playstation 3 this year. That exclusivity in Japan will surely push many systems out of the retailers doors as the Xbox360 version development won’t start until the PS3’s development is complete. Even though that is relatively old news, I still have no idea how they will get that right.
Final Fantasy XIII will return to the Active Time Battle system (which I adore) unlike its predecessor, which means many of the RPG purists who called foul with FFXII will be happy again.
(Today was the first time I had ever seen the title art, wow its gorgeous.)
