It's been confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII will not be released for Xbox 360 in Japan.
That's according to an article in Dengeki PlayStation magazine, as translated by Kotaku.
Game director Motomu Toriyama is quoted as saying, "There will absolutely not be an Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII for Japan," which is hard to misinterpret.
As yet there have been no reports of rioting in the streets, though several Japanese Xbox 360 owners are said to be "disgruntled".
As previously reported, Final Fantasy XIII PS3 will be released in Japan next year. A multi-platform version will follow for the US and Europe.
