PSB EU writes: "Hi everyone! I'm Antonio "Papero" Marfuggi from SQUARE ENIX's Brand Team. Just dropping you a couple of lines to let you know something big (and with "big" I mean "BIG"!) is coming up about FINAL FANTASY XIII."
I guess this confirms that the announcement is to do with EU more than NA. Also nothing huge for Xbox fans (who may be thought it was that Japanese 360 owners getting FF13 as well)
i doubt it's that huge of an announcement. who knows, imagine they announced Eng. subtitles?
If it is English subtitles on the Japanese release of the game, that would be awesome. I'd definitely import it, but I doubt it. Most likely it's just a release date announcement I'm guessing.
think about it a little, if they said that on the european blog than it would have nothing to do with the japanese release. and as the guy pointed out its from the words of the producer of FFXIII. so im assuming it is going to be BIG! and not some half arsed announcment like bioware did :S (still not happy over the blank release date of teh european PS3 version of dragon age :@)
We know they've been working on the 360 version alongside the PS3 version, so the only BIG (capital letters) announcement I can think of is simultaneous worldwide release. Japan, NA, and EU get FFXIII Dec. 17. That would update my Christmas list real fast. @morgan A demo is more likely, but you gotta think BIG, man. :)
@1.4 - That would be HUGE news!
...here comes the localized versions of the demo before christmas...
oh fantastic, an announcement of an announcement.
Release Date for EU? and maybe a World Wide Release Date? ahhhh... stop dreaming!
bubbles Aqua.........that made me LOL Next up........the countdown clock It's going to end up being a demo announcement probably. Don't get your hopes up that way you won't be disappointed. Hopefully though it's either Worldwide release this year or even Eng subs, then I'll be on the import list as well Don't have my box anymore, but for the xbox FF fans, I hope they don't region lock so it can be imported there too.
OMG a Dec 17th release date for EU would be so so sweeeeeeet. But very unlikly. It will be a solid release date for next year and/or a demo hitting the PSN very soon. Roll on Friday
Can't wait to find out what it is.
I KNOW what it is and it's REALLY big. They're sick of the localisations in the EU taking so long and are sending out thousands and thousands of Japanese language tutors to sort out the issue. They yeard many of us like to hear the original Japanese voice work and are aiming to hive us the ability to have it in all it's glory and with full understanding! They expect EVERYONE owning a PS3 will be able to speak all forms of Japanese at least by the release of Vs in 2020! THIS is what they're spending all MS cash on! If the experiment works in the EU they're pushing for a full worlwide Japanese spealing gaming community in the coming decade. Thank you. NO more waiting for those willing to adopt this brave SE initiative.
Final Fantasy XIII will release in Europe on PS3 3 months before the Xbox 360 version. And of course, there will be a bundle PS3 + Final Fantasy XIII at 349.99 euros.
Hyped announcements of announcements need less hype.
I hate when we get these announcements of announcements. I wish they would just bring us the info. Oh well, at least we know something's coming, I suppose.
My guess is that it'll be released at the same time as the NA version. The downside to this is that the NA version will be delayed :)
whats funny is that this is the first time they post on the blog. Pretty sure everyone on there is Roasting those guys with what they did in the last 1 1/2 years with all the drama of it going multiplatform and all...
I thought so too and a number of people said before they were going to complain when they did appear. So far there is none.
Yes. And note that due to the smaller resolution and processing power on the Wii, character bodies will not be rendered, which means you will be floating heads throughout the whole game.
about this stupid watered down multiplatform piece of sh!t, xbots can stick this BIIIIIIIIG news right where they know, thanks of those animals and its stupid inferior system, this game its not gonna be what it WAS meant to be.
Thats the punishment you Droids pay for trolling N4G 24/7. Muhahahah
first posting excitement about motion tech coming Nov 2010 as their hope for something special. Then seeing yet another piece of news to take the wind from their sails LOL.
Website gave me a virus!!
Thats the punishment you xtards get for supporting microshaft. Muhahahah can they not build nothing properly?
Yoshinori Kitase: "Due to outdated DVD9 format, FFXIII return a PS3 exclusive."
Take a look at this movie.. *FFX3* At long last the day has arrive for the Xbox360. FFXIII will be available at launch in America and Europe for Xbox360.
why do you want FFXIII on your 360? don't you have any good xbox games to play :S
What if Square's gonna launch the game sooner for the PS3 in america? Or how about a demo on PSN for christmas? What else could be considered "BIG" and while being hyped by the playstation forums?
to get a demo on the PSN before Christmas. I find it hard to believe that they are going to announce a worldwide release this close to the date. They probably want plenty of time to market this game in the EU and NA. Japanese marketing has already been rolling.
american announcement on an EU blog?
I think it will be 2 things, firstly a eu/us PSN demo announcement, and then a Eu/US release date for the full version, which will be sooner then what most people originally thought it would be.
Im calling it FF13+ ff13vs demo.
versus is still in early developement, but we can dream.
"due to outdated DVD9 format, FF 13 return a PS3 exclusive xDDD" Its amazing at how dumb people are
