I'll be talking about big RPG related news, what RPG's I'm currently playing and some classic RPG's you may like to know about or maybe passed by without giving them a chance.
What better way to kick off the first Level-Up then talking about some big news. Final Fantasy XIII finally has a release day for Japan and that date is December 17th 2009. This enforces Square-Enix's promise that Final Fantasy XIII would arrive in Winter 09 exclusive to PS3 in Japan. With the game finally seeing a release in Japan and seeing as we have already gotten word that the English voice over for the game is already complete it won't be that much longer until we see a US release for the game. Many have been speculating a June 2010 release but until Square-Enix gives us solid confirmation treat that date as rumor."
