View Full Version : FFXIII Not Arriving Outside of Japan until 2010

Square Enix's highly anticipated JRPG won't be released outside of island nation until sometime after April 2010 on PS3 and Xbox 360.

At this year's Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix debuted a new trailer for Final Fantasy XIII, its highly anticipated role-playing game slated to arrive for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Aside from the eye candy, Square Enix's trailer also offered the tantalizing promise of a 2009 launch date.

Unfortunately, that promise of a 2009 release apparently applies only to Japan, given that the game isn't going to make it to the US or Europe until the second quarter of 2010 at the very earliest. The news emerged as Square Enix, the game's developer, delivered projections for the remainder of its current fiscal year, which ends March 31.

Square Enix president Yoichi Wada told Reuters that the game was on track for a 2009 PS3-exclusive launch in Japan, with international launches for the Xbox 360 and PS3 coming "in the business year from April 2010 or later."

Final Fantasy has been one of the most successful franchises ever to hit the console market. Since its first incarnation on the NES, the series has sold upward of 85 million units worldwide, with numerous spin-offs and even a feature-length movie adding to its success.

Despite the delay in the launch of Final Fantasy, Square Enix has remained optimistic about its financial outlook for 2009 with a small dip in operating profit of 2.4 percent to 21 billion yen ($236 million) forecast for the year. The company also reported healthy sales for the tail end of 2008 and said "demand has been generally brisk," with key titles such as Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest IV and Final Fantasy VII prequel Crisis Core all hitting shelves throughout the year.

I think it's funny how they're blaming the delay on the 360

I don't understand why people play JRPG's when there are games like Baldurs Gate, Planescape: Torment, Diablo, Titan Quest, The Witcher, Morrowind, Oblivion, Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights etc. And most JRPG fans haven't played at least 50% of these games.

Because jrpgs are better and more taxing, there is a few decent wrpgs though

better graphics great stories character design better music good battle system gameplay everything is better on JRPG

i have seen Oblivion is a very long game with many things to do but the graphics are too simplistic and battle system sucks it just not my kind of game

since XIII is the main tittle this affects Versus too they want Versus to drop after XIII

I only wish they cut out the bullshit and at least drop Versus first since is PS3 only
but no we get nothing not even Last Remnants which i want to play so bad(PS3 of course)

You forgot "know" between "don't" and "what". And I think no JRPG can compare with Planescape: Torment when it comes to the story. No game cane compare to Planescape: Torment when it comes to the story, so I guess, your talk is empty.

I never played FF, and don't intend to. JRPGs are something that is overhyped.

But I'll never hate on someone for liking it.

If you've never even played an FF game, then how could you even begin to compare them to ANYTHING? How can you say something is over hyped if you've never experienced it? How can you judge something you know nothing about? Why did you enter this thread?

BLAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

almost all of those are only on computer, playin games on computer is fuckin stupid cuz they keep makin mothafuckas spend shitloads of money on hardware every time they put 1 new game out

also, every final fantasy game after final fantasy 6 (final fantasy 3 on super nintendo) sucks ass. same old boring shit over and over again. who the fuck wants to spend months of their life starin at homo looking attempts to create photorealistic anime characters with some sappy ass plot no one gives a shit about

to say FF games are the same shit over and over again is stupid as fuck
they always change the battle system they always change the worlds they do very few sequels they do top notch graphics pushing each console to its limits no story is the same, so your point is not valid

FF series is good why do you think there are more then 13 games

@ Shizzah if you ever want to try a FF game i suggest one of this tittle
FFVII FFVIII FFX FFXII or FFTactics (i can't mention FFXI cuz i never got play it since is online only plus this game looks more like the type of RPG you mention before)
(Stay away from FFX-2)
each are good on their own respected way
if you don't want to waste money you can always use a ePSXe emulator and download the game

No one should have to go through the awful battle system of FF8. Draw was the worst idea ever.

I only played the PS FF games and I definitely enjoyed FF9 more than FF7 but FF7 still had a battle system. Materia system made it so you can just equip whatever you wanted to anyone.

Legend of Dragoon, Xenogears, and Suikoden 2 are other good PS1 rpgs. You have a comp, download and play them.
