Final Fantasy XIII Lightning
There’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel for Final Fantasy fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Final Fantasy XIII. Even better, it’ll be out on the PS3 this year. The Japanese debut is December 17, 2009, and it was announced at the Final Fantasy XIII event at Odaiba’s National Museum of Science and Innovation. As you may, or may not, recall, the game was first announced way back at E3 2006. It’s expensive though – the price is 8800 yen, about $94.73.

Final Fantasy XIII‘s rating was also revealed at the event. It’ll be Cero B in Japan, meaning it’s deemed appropriate for players ages 12 and up. This is a bit unusual, as Final Fantasy games typically receive a Cero A all ages rating in Japan, even when the ESRB rates the English language equivalent Everyone 10+ or higher. Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XI and the international version of Final Fantasy XII all received Cero B ratings as well.

The Xbox 360 version still doesn’t have a definite release date, other than sometime in 2010.

Since the PS3 is region-free, you can always import if you’re desperate for the game. However, this news pretty much guarantees that the game will see a 2010 release date. That is, baring any misfortunate circumstances.
