Square Enix to charge for FFXIII demo?

European arm declining to comment.

Square Enix has refused to comment on rumours that a solus Final Fantasy XIII demo may be sold separately to the public.

It was thought the plan was to bundle the sampler with the Blu-ray release of Advent Children: Complete next March in Japan.

But key designer Tetsuya Nomura hinted in an interview with Dengeki PlayStation magazine (translated by FinalFantasy-XIII.net) that a separate version may be offered for a price at a later date. Which sounds rather cheeky, even if the demo is 90 minutes long.

Exact costs, timings, or news on whether an Xbox 360 demo will feature are all questions still to be revealed.

However, we did recently find out that Final Fantasy XIII will definitely not be sold on Xbox 360 across Japan, which shocked absolutely no one.
