212w ago - Square-Enix's announcement has been revealed- Final Fantasy XIII will hit Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's XBox 360 consoles on March 9, 2010.
Introducing both sets of platform owners to the sky city of Cocoon, the game (which hits in Japan on Dec. 17) will include a new battle system, a "dramatic story" focused on the emotions of the character and will feature a Leona Lewis single as the game's opening theme.
