Final Fantasy XIII
Posted 13 January 2007 - 03:11 PM
In Final Fantasy XIII's world, crystals apparently have the power to create large machines and creatures. Therefore, the crystal has brought prosperity to the game's world. Said world is sealed inside a giant shell floating in space. This closed society is fittingly referred to as "Cocoon." Its residents have long feared creatures from the outside world: and for good reason. In Pulse, the netherworld beneath the Cocoon, formless creatures have awoken and begun to spread fear and hatred among men. The governmental body inside the Cocoon reacts to this threat with drastic emergency measures. As a result of those emergency measures, large numbers of suspicious citizens are arrested and forced to migrate to Pulse. In these dire times, the Crystal chooses the heroine to fight those who try to destroy the world. This, however, pits her against the Cocoon society's government. Square Enix also revealed a second important character: A blonde-haired, motorcycle riding man. The towering man is described by character designer Tetsuya Nomura as "cowboy-like." While Nomura would not detail his relationship with the heroine, he said the two do not share a usual relationship.
Final Fantasy XIII has yet to receive a release date in Japan."
I like seeing the ATB back, but Shiva going transformer and turning into a bike? Man, I dont know about that.. I'll have to see it to judge it for myself though. But none of that sounds good. lol

Final Fantasy XIII confirmed for 2008
For those who hoped to play Final Fantasy XIII this year, this is bad news.
In a recent interview, Nomura confirmed to the Famitsu gaming magazine that Final Fantasy XIII won't be coming out in 2007, and that the new release date is set for 2008. The most simple explanation is that they still have some other projects to finish before being able to fully focus on Final Fantasy XIII.
Final Fantasy XIII is part of the Final Fantasy: Fabula Nova Crystallis trilogy, which also includes Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII (for cellphones).
Although the game is set to be released in 2008, we can expect a demo to be available late this year. If the demo doesn't make it to the online stores this year, we will at least have the first in-game footage from TGS or some other events.

Just a shame that we most likely won't see a US release before 2008.

No seriously, I read the following on RPGFan.com
Hmmm, a ten year anniversary re-release of FFVII?
As for the fith, still unannounced game, Nomura would only say: "If we don't release it in 2007, its meaning will fade."

Also too, Lightning (horrible name for a character) is NOT the main protganist for FFXIII.
Lightning in Japanese is "Lai" or "Rai". Might sound cooler in Japanese than English.

Imagine a character called "TREE" or "PEBBLE" or "PLATEAU"...that would suck.
