Square Enix confirms FFXIII date

Mid-December for 60 quid.

Update: The date has been confirmed. The price, with tax, is ¥9240 (£60.54).

Square Enix is expected to confirm a 17th December Japanese release for Final Fantasy XIII today at a special Tokyo Premiere Party that starts at 7pm JST (11am UK).

The announcement was pre-emptively spoiled by an online advertising campaign on YouTube Japan which, when its URL was changed to contain "After", displayed the December date. Oops. Fansite FinalFantasy-XIII.net had the scoop.

Final Fantasy XIII won't appear in Europe until next year, of course, when an Xbox 360 version will be added to the inventory. That's a work-in-progress at the moment, but will eventualy launch simultaneously with the PS3 game when the bunnies arrive in spring.
