Final Fantasy XIII Xbox 360 Asia Version Announced!

50°
317w ago - During E3, Microsoft announced that Final Fantasy XIII was coming to the Xbox 360 – but only for North America and Europe. However, the Xbox 360 was not announced for Japan. Add another country to the list!

At a recent Microsoft game exhibition in Taipei, Microsoft Taiwan's Entertainment and Devices Division head Grace Chou announced that Final Fantasy XIII for the Xbox 360 would go on sale in Taiwan, but haven't yet decided which localized version will be launched for the Asian territories.

We imagine that means it should be possible for Japanese Xbox 360 owners to import the Asia version and play it on their consoles – that is, unless the Asia FFXIII is region coded so that's impossible. This version could have the original Japanese language track with Chinese/Korean/English subtitles or it might be the English language version with Chinese/Korean subtitles. According to Chou, the language hasn't yet been decided.

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete to Include FFXIII Demo

317w ago - More news is slowly coming out from Square Enix's private DKΜ3713 fan event.

According to a Famitsu report, the Blu-ray release of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete will feature a fully playable Final Fantasy XIII demo for the PlayStation 3 on a separate disc, along with exclusive trailers for both Versus XIII and Agito XIII.

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete is scheduled for a March 2009 release in Japan. Taking this into consideration, it's safe to say that the full version of XIII won't be hitting Japan until after March of next year.

Unless Square Enix has a worldwide launch announcement up its sleeve, you know what that means for those of us living in North America and Europe.
 

What Final Fantasy 13 Will and Won't do for the Xbox 360

318w ago - Today you will hear about what Final Fantasy 13 will and won't do for the Xbox 360. So sit back, grab a beer or your respective drink, and get ready to read!

4. Final Fantasy WON'T be the saving grace in Japan for the Xbox 360

Final Fantasy does not need to be released in Japan for the sole reason that Xbox 360 in Japan is pretty much the equivalent of finding a VII gaming system in America. In Japan, they don't want much to do with the Xbox 360. They support their countries products and have no need for a American console with more shoot'em ups that you can shake a stick at. Just take a look at July's numbers of in Japan.

1. PSP- 56,998
2. Nintendo DS- 48,540
3. Wii- 41,798
4. PS3- 12,458
5. PS2- 10,405
6. Xbox 360- 3,807

If I were in charge of Microsoft, I would have stopped trying to beat that dead horse many days ago.

3. Final Fantasy 11 was on the 360.

FF11 on the 360 was a joke, as far as I can remember (the beta). The game had a install time that was just ridiculously long. The game was known to have a 6 to 10 hour install time. You could not just set the game to install then go off to work. You would always have to click different things every hour or so.

On top of having a install time that took...
 

Final Fantasy XIII Versus Jump Festa 2007 Trailer Leaked!

50°
318w ago - HBJ5, a member on FinalFantasy-xiii.net Forums (linked above), has found a leaked version of the Final Fantasy Versus XIII Trailer shown at Jump Festa 2007 which has never seen public eyes outside of Square-Enix's evil Closed Mega Theater.

To quote: We're not sure where this video has been leaked from, but we can only thank the Photobucket user a thousand times for uploading it for us. Thank God they have a good quality camera.

From what we can tell, this isn't the complete trailer, but is a good portion of it. The music is apparently from the final boss battle in Lost Oddyssey but I don't remember it. This trailer like all the rest is 100% CG.

Video is available from idStarfleets via YouTube below:




 

Final Fantasy XIII no longer a PS3 Exclusive!

700°
320w ago - The announcement was made earlier today that FFXIII is coming out on Xbox 360 too. In fact, it'll be a simultaneous release on both PS3 and Xbox 360 for US and Europe. Today's Square Enix E3 press conference clarified a few details.

First: Final Fantasy XIII is still a PS3-exclusive... at least in Japan. According to Kotaku, Square Enix exec Shinji Hashimoto told reporters: "I think you are right [in assuming that (the Xbox 360 version) is not coming out in Japan.]" It will only appear on Xbox 360 in English-speaking territories.

In addition, Final Fantasy XIII will release in Japan first -- and then will be localized for the international audience. That means Japanese gamers will enjoy FFXIII on PS3 long before the rest of the world will see it go multiplatform.

Hashimoto says that the Xbox 360's large install base in English territories is what led to the decision to make the game multiplatform. Because the decision was recent, there's no way of estimating how many discs the Xbox 360 version will be.

Also, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is still in development as a PS3 exclusive.
