Final Fantasy XIII Release Date Confirmed

Illustration for article titled Final Fantasy XIII Release Date Confirmed

Square Enix confirmed tonight at a Japanese press event that Final Fantasy XIII will indeed be out on December 17. Least, that's when it'll be out in Japan.


The date isn't a surprise - not after it was accidentally leaked by Square on the company's YouTube site - but still, it's nice to get confirmation.

It's priced at ¥8800 (¥9240 with tax), which works out to be USD$95 (USD$100). So, yeah, expensive.

As for a Western release date, sadly all Square Enix would say was "Spring". Which we knew already. Ah well! Stay tuned for more news throughout the evening.

Hey, people, that's the currency exchange rate. It's not an announcement that the game will cost USD$100 when released in the US.
