Final Fantasy XIII Release Date Announced

Final Fantasy XIII has been one of those games that has gamers investing into a current generation platform. Originally thought to be a Sony exclusive, Final Fantasy XIII will be headed to Xbox 360 as well – but the question remained, regardless of platform, as to when it would hit.

Square Enix confirmed at a Japanese press event that Final Fantasy XIII will be out in Japan on December 17, 2009 for the PlayStation 3.

The big news is that Final Fantasy XII will be complete in the coming months, meaning that localization efforts can begin, as well as the port to the Xbox 360.

While Square Enix wasn't ready to commit to a hard date for a western release, but according to Kotaku, Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada 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."
