Final Fantasy XIII coming to 360

Will be out same time as PS3.

Final Fantasy XIII is coming to Xbox 360, Square-Enix has confirmed.

Speaking at Microsoft's E3 2008 press briefing, Square-Enix boss Yoichi Wada confirmed the stunning news, stating: "At long last, the day we've all been waiting for has arrived. It gives me great pleasure to unveil this to you today."

In no way understating the significance of the announcement, Microsoft's Don Mattrick said: "Final Fantasy XIII is an astonishing addition to our growing array of RPG titles.

"Final Fantasy joins a long list of former PlayStation franchises finding a new home on Xbox 360," he beamed. A lengthy trailer was shown, albeit mostly CG.

No release dates were mentioned, with the only information being that the 360 version would be available "at launch". Presumably later in 2009.

However, Square-Enix is currently holding a press conference at the LA Convention Center and the bit of Eurogamer not typing this is sitting in the front row feverishly taking notes, so expect some updates soon.

The news followed preview presentations of two of Square-Enix's other 360 RPGs, namely Star Ocean, due Spring 2009, and Infinite Undiscovery, out later this year. We're also told to look forward to Last Remnant. So do that.

Check back for all the Square-Enix trailers, including FFXIII, later today.
