Square Enix confirms FFXIII-2 for January western launch

By Johnny Cullen, Monday, 18 July 2011 17:32 GMT

Square Enix has confirmed it’s to launch Final Fantasy XIII-2 in the west next January.

The date is referenced in a press release sent out by the company for its upcoming line-up for ComicCon – full story on that here – but nothing more specific is confirmed.

When the game was first announced back in January, Square Enix had only given a timeline of “next winter” for its release in the US and Europe.

At E3, it was confirmed for a release this December in Japan and merely early 2012 for a launch here.

But now it’s narrowed down. Somewhat. Expect the full dates to come at either gamescom or Tokyo Game Show in September.
