Final Fantasy XIII Western Release Date: Mar. 9

Back in September we learned that the Japanese release date for Final Fantasy XIII would be December 17. While that was great news, gamers in parts of the western world were waiting for word of the English localized version.

Today Square Enix reveals all in a special video, announcing that Final Fantasy XIII will be hitting both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe on March 9, 2009.

Watch the video below and get your preorder on.

    Methinks they better start using different names.
    If not... in the future: Final Fantasy MDCCCLXXXVIII (FF 1888)

    ...not too pretty.
