Final Fantasy VII Limited Edition PlayStation 3 to Arrive in April

50°
274w ago - Square-Enix has revealed the first image of the limited edition Final Fantasy VII PS3.

Pictured below, you'll see the Final Fantasy VII style PS3. Dubbed "Cloud Black," this PS3 will come individually numbered and packaged with a Blu-ray version of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete.

Of course, the real appeal of getting Advent Children Complete on Blu-ray is the Final Fantasy XIII demo. Oddly enough, Advent Children will have the option of English voices, but it'll lack the option for English subtitles if watching in Japanese.

Also, the Final Fantasy XIII demo will not feature English subtitles or voice work. Too bad.

Complete package details:

- "Cloud Black" HDD 160GB PS3
- Final Fantasy XIII Trail Version Set (FFXIII demo)
- Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray disc

The Cloud Black PS3 will come with a 160GB HDD and release on April 16th for 49,980 yen ($550 give or take a bit). No word on an oversea release, though.
