Final Fantasy XIII to receive release date soon

Things are in motion at Square Enix. With Q4 2009 fast-approaching, CEO Yoichi Wada is poking his head out from behind the curtain to let us know that Square “will be making an announcement in a few weeks” regarding Final Fantasy XIII‘s release date.

The title is set to launch this Winter exclusively for PlayStation 3 in Japan and sometime in the first quarter of 2010 in North America and Europe for PS3 and Xbox 360. There’s still no word on whether or not the forthcoming announcement will reveal the North American or European release dates as well, but chances are this will be regarding the Japanese release only. Wada also commented that the game’s development “has been going favorably”.

It’s good to know that the highly-anticipated title is on schedule, at least for Japan. In the meantime, how about a playable demo for us gaijin, eh? C’mon, Squeenix. Show some love.
