Advent Children here in 2006

Let's hope so, anyway.

Almost two years after Final Fantasy movie Advent Children was first announced, Eurogamer has learned that the film will be coming to Europe on UMD and DVD this year.

That's according to a source close to the project, who also said that Sony would be handling distribution and release outside of Japan. The source, who spoke to us after Sony and Square Enix were unable to help with enquiries, said that if all goes to plan the movie will be out in Europe by the end of 2006.

The news comes after US website TheDigitalBits also said the film would be released there this year. According to TDB, "It's taking a little extra time to work with the director to get all the supplemental elements finished" - hence the delay.

But let's not get our hopes up too much. Square-Enix previously told us that Advent Children will be out by the end of the year - in, er, May 2005. Ah well.
