Final Fantasy XIII confirmed for 2008 release

Chris Scott Barr - Jan 29, 2008

My love for RPGs started with a little game called The Legend of Zelda. I loved it, and the sequels that followed, however, it was some time before I really branched out and played other RPGs. It wasn’t that I had anything against them, there were just a lot of other genres to be played. It wasn’t until I got my Playstation that I realized what I’d been missing. That, of course, was when I discovered Final Fantasy VII. The series is now all the way up to XII, and according to Tetsuya Nomura, we’ll be seeing XIII by the end of this year.

If you’re not familiar with Tetsuya Nomura, he’s the character designer behind many of the games in the Final Fantasy series. What’s more is we should expect a playable demo to be released well ahead of the launch to show off the updated battle system.

For those waiting to hear about the Xbox 360 launch, you’ll probably be waiting a long time. Square Enix still has this thing about releasing most of its games on the PS3, and this one is no different.
