Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn will launch this summer on PC and PS3. The third phase of closed beta testing will start in June, and as previously reported, this will include PS3 users. The beta will also include new content such as the city states of Ul’dah and Limsa Lominsa. New shots are below. Well, a few we’ve seen before, but you get the idea.

New screenshots for Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn have appeared online, showing the Archer, Gladiator, Lancer, Marauder, Pugilist, Conjurer, and Thaumaturge classes. If you head over to NeoGAF, you will also see shots of the jobs Bard, Dragoon, Monk, Paladin, Warrior, Black Mage, and White Mage. The game is looking rather lovely, and if you head below, you will be able to watch a developer gameplay walkthrough video (thanks, EdNorton). Better grab something to drink and run a few errands first – it’s two hours long. Hopefully, you understand Japanese as well. A Realm Reborn is a complete remake of Final fantasy 14 currently in beta and is slated for PC and PS3 later this year.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn will allow more testers in the beta come April, and during Phase 2, support for gamepad controllers will be implemented. Word on this comes from the latest producer letter which you can read here. Phase 2 of the beta, Yoshida says, will kick off in early April. There are currently 100,000 testers trying things out, and if you want in on Phase 2, be sure to sign up here for your chance at a spot. Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn’s Phase 3 of the beta will go public and PS3 users will be able to join on the action. Both versions will be released later this year. Thanks, Siliconera.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn will be the recipient of a fourth alpha test starting next week and running until mid-December. An extra world will be added so more players can participate, even though the test will include 40 areas which can accommodate 1,000 players at once. Still, it’s better to be safe than sorry. This will be the final alpha test for the MMO, but the development team is considering leaving the worlds open until the end of the year. More information is available through the latest producer’s letter.

Final Fantasy 14 is to be destroyed by retailers per Square Enix’s request, according to a NeoGaf poster who works at retail. The firm is offering $16 compensation for each copy. Joystiq requested comment on the matter, but Square wouldn’t acknowledge a destroy order had been issued. Square is busy working on the game’s reboot, which upon launch will be known as Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn.

Xbox product boss Aaron Greenberg has told VG247 that Final Fantasy is not an exclusive product to PlayStation 3, but remained coy on whether or not the MMO will launch on Xbox 360.
“My understanding is that it is not exclusive,” he said in an interview today.
“That would be a good question to ask Square.”
He added: “I know that we have a great relationship with [Square]. They provided a number of big titles, including some exclusives like Star Ocean, along with having FFXIII demoed on Xbox 360.”
Square Enix senior VP Shinji Hashimoto has just confirmed to an E3 press event that it is considering “all options” for the game.
“We don’t want to make a copy of World of Warcraft,” a Square rep said.
SCEA boss Jack Tretton said in the Sony E3 press conference last night that the title was a PS3 exclusive, to release next year.
