The Japanese version of upcoming Blu-ray movie Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete is bundled with a demo for Final Fantasy XIII. Those wondering about the demo's length and the game's release, read on.

The latest issue of Famitsu reveals more information about the demo. According to an interview with FFXIII director and writer Motomu Toriyama and assistant character designer Nao Ikeda, the game is over an hour, but is structured so that players can play it repeatedly. The demo does not make it up to heroine Lighting meets bandana-wearing Snow Villiers.

When Square Enix announced the delay of Dragon Quest IX, exec Yoichi Wada stated it may effect Final Fantasy XIII. When asked about this, Toriyama replied, "Development is going favorably for a 2009 launch."

you just know play-asia's gonna sell right out of those advent children, and like 10 of you are actually gonna watch it (not counting those who do so on mute; its a beautiful screensaver, no doubt). and i know people are gonna bitch about paying for a demo, but hey, i bought those beautiful katamari levels so my credibility's lone gone.

ps since you kids cant talk XIII without getting into this, let's get it right: FF VI > FF XII > (your mom) > etc frankly any # after that im fine with, be it IV, VII, IX etc, just no VIII unless you only played the first disc. point being: FF XII rocked your face.
