E3: Final Fantasy XIII 360 in spring

Game shown at MS conference.

Square Enix has said that it's aiming at a "spring 2010 release" for Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360.

Speaking at E3, director Yoshinori Kitase said we should be looking forward to the RPG before summer, which means significantly less sweating in a hot room as we desperately try to be the first to finish it.

During the conference the game was shown publicly being played on a 360 for the first time, with footage from the mech-boss battle featured in the PS3 demo released last month.

Motomu Toriyama helpfully summoned powerful Esper Odin to illustrate some of the fancier combat options available, although these would not normally be available so early in the game.

Why not take another look at our PS3 demo hands-on to refresh your memory on what to expect?
