Japan was fortunate enough to get a Final Fantasy XIII demo packed in with the Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray, but the rest of the world can only depend on trailers and screenshots to get their androgynous-boy-in-a-fantasy-world fix. Square Enix has yet to announce a demo for the west, but producer Yoshinori Kitase told Joystiq there might be a demo available for the States before the game comes out in the Spring of 2010. And it could be all new.
“If we were to provide the demo overseas, it would be a completely new version,” says Kitase, who also suggests that it won’t be coming out on disc. “We are thinking of providing it in a downloadable format.”
That is, if they decide to release a demo for the States, it may have new content that might be available as a download.
