May 23, 2007 - Did that updated http://ps3.ign.com/objects/826/826843.html trailer (you know, the one you weren't able to see because filming was not allowed) from the Square Enix Party get you even more excited about Japan's most anticipated PS3 title? Well don't start saving your cash just yet, as there's going to be quite the wait before you actually get to play it.
Fielding questions at a Square Enix financial briefing in Tokyo today, president Yoichi Wada said this about Final Fantasy XIII: "It will still take a bit more time. At the very least, [a release] this fiscal year is definitely out of the question."
Japanese is known for being a pretty vague language, but Wada's words were pretty clear. No FFXIII in Japan until some time after March 2008.
Let's hope Square Enix starts the translation before development finishes up.
