    Final Fantasy XIII Japanese Release Date and Bundle Confirmed


    It's official! Square Enix will release Final Fantasy XIII on December 17, 2009 in Japan, unless it decides not to between now and then.

    To quote: "Square Enix president Yoichi Wada announced the release date and the price (8,800 yen, or $95!) today at its Final Fantasy XIII Party in the http://www.miraikan.jst.go.jp/en/ museum (via http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3175937).

    Kaz Hirai then took the stage to announce that of course there will be a PS3 hardware bundle containing the game.

    He didn't mention any details - no price nor release date, though it's sure to be day-and-date with the standalone software. When Square Enix does show it off, it'll be hard not to hear about it."

    Finally a set release date, lets hope they don't change it. So this would set a US release sometime in Q1 of 2010, but whats up with the price!? I hope that 95$ won't be the price we see over in the states that would make it the most expensive game ever and will surely deter lots of people except us hardcore FF fans.

    I too hope thats not the US price, tho its strange if a game made by a japanese company sells for more in the country it is made in.
