International version of FFXIII could definitely be out by April 2010, says Square Enix

But it might not even make that date.

Why? Because – even though Square Enix’s Yoichi Wada said during a recent financial briefing that the game’s on track to complete its localization before the end of Square Enix’s current financial year – development’s not the only factor influencing the game’s release date. While he didn’t mention any specifics, we’re guessing he was referring to marketing and things of the like.

However, according to Wada, “progress is good,” so here’s hoping Square Enix puts FFXIII on our plates as soon as its fit for consumption.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    That’ll be the US version, for Europe we’ll have to wait even longer.
    Christmas 2010, if we’re lucky.

    @Freek: Square has said from the beginning (well, at least ever since the 360 version was announced) that they’re aiming for a simultaneous US/EU release.
    Don’t know if PS3 games being region-free have anything to do with this, that Square realised that no-one in Europe is going to wait an entire fucking year this time, but whatever works.

    “Could” leads to a possibility. I would just say we are aiming to release by spring. But I reall hope they do release it around them will be a good year for RPGs.
