In an interview with 1UP, Final Fantasy XIII co-producer Yoshinori Kitase said that the story to the game is complete, with Japanese voice recording about to begin.
“As you mentioned, it definitely helps the localization when you’ve got a finalized story,” he said when asked about how they plan to lessen the gap between Eastern and Western releases.
“Our story is now complete, and we’re just about to start the voice casting and recording. Once that’s complete, we can really get into the localization process.”
There’s also something in there about a FFVII: Advent Children megaton (our words) at DKS3713 in Tokyo on August 2 and 3.
