Signs Point To Final Fantasy XIII Simultaneous Release

Final Fantasy Union writes "Towards the tail end of last week, Square Enix announced that Dissidia: Final Fantasy would be released in Europe on the 4th of September, 2009. While this doesn't sound overly significant in itself, the date is only a week after the North American release.

For those who have been following Final Fantasy for some time, especially those in Europe, delays between regions are usually quite substantial. It's not uncommon for there to be a 4-5 month delay between the North American and European versions, and it's something that's always been very disappointing to European gamers."

Hey that's my line, ya?

Christopher3450d ago

Didn't they announce at E3 of 2008 that it would release early in Japan on PS3 only and other wise simultaneously everywhere else on the PS3 and 360?

I thought this was old news?

Disccordia3450d ago

Yes I don't know why this was approved really, we don't need speculation on something that's already been announced as a fact a year ago by SE.

On another note, wouldn't it be funny if FFXIV came out before FFXIII.

beavis4play3450d ago

look at second paragraph. they state this.

Like Microsoft is going to give Sony a heads up on this one, already the United States version was pushed back to be released at the same time as the Xbox 360 version. Original announcement in 2005-2007 was this game had a goal of world-wide same time release to show that Square Enix can keep up with Western developers.

Hopefully this is the case for Final Fantasy XIII

heroicjanitor3450d ago

Since it needs to be ported to the 360 they will delay the us release and release it with europe. At least it's the most logical way of doing things.

vx3450d ago

Dead_Cell3450d ago

It'll do great sales wise and I'm sure it'll get at the very least 8's

Vx_3450d ago

this gen is moving on and this game will not see the light any time soon

gamesmaster3450d ago

XIII an unlucky number for some..... or for square enix.

farsided3450d ago

at least Pachter agrees with you on that point.
I think if FFXIV is slated to arrive on this gen's system, then XIII will be just fine.
