FFXIII dev “going favourably” for 2009 launch, says Square

Wednesday, 25th February 2009 13:32 GMT By Patrick Garratt


FFXIII director and writer Motomu Toriyama has told Famitsu that, “Development is going favourably for a 2009 launch.”

The comment comes after company boss Yoichi Wada warned that the quadruple-A project may be pushed back thanks to Dragon Quest IX’s now-confirmed slip.

The RPG is slated only for Japanese release – and only for PS3 – this year. Versions for other territories, including the 360 SKU, will follow later.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Can we all agree to keep shut about FF13 till it comes out over here? Every time I read about the game I nearly wet myself in anticipation.

    “We might just sneak in a December 31st release in Japan says SE project manager”

    “Europe? Can’t say I’ve ever heard of the place.”

    Now if they could get English Translation in there, I will purchase it hands down. I understand “some” Japanese, but not all of it. =(
