Oh dear. Square Enix said in Japan yesterday that the now-confirmed Dragon Quest IX delay may cause a slip for Final Fantasy XIII.

“There is a possibility that Dragon Quest IX delay could effect Final Fantasy XIII,” said president Yoichi Wada.

He added: “The next term’s schedule has been fixed yet.

“Presently, I cannot say what kind of effect we will experience from moving the Dragon Quest IX launch from March to July. I cannot say there won’t be an effect.”

Dragon Quest IX was pushed back from March 28 to July 11 in Japan yesterday.

Thanks, Kotaku.
