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.
