Final Fantasy XIII release date announced

For all of you constantly having to wipe the sweat from your palms, eagerly awaiting the news of Final Fantasy XIII’s European release date, you will now be relieved that the wait is over.

The stylish RPG will be hitting our shores on March 9 next year, delivering us the next dose of Final Fantasy that should hopefully tie us over to number XIV.

Interesting details that are starting to emerge include that Leona Lewis will be lending her talent to the game’s theme, titled ‘My Hands’, a song which is coming out on her second album this week.

Tom Corson, EVP/GM of RCA Music Group said, “Leona is a natural fit with the game’s powerful themes and strong female protagonist. We’re delighted to be part of this effort, bringing great musical artistry to Final Fantasy XIII which is a riveting and dynamic gaming experience.”

Also a first for the series is a simultaneous release on multiple consoles, which will mean that come this spring, 360 and PS3 players a like will be enjoying what could possibly be one of the prettiest games to date.

    So, am I going to get a game because Leona Lewis has a song on it? The head of Square Enix couldn’t keep a straight face when saying all that gumpf about how amazing she and the album is on the promotional video!

    Now when is the PS3 only FF MMO coming out? Its THAT I want to hear about.

      Next year mate but it’s not PS3 only it’s coming out on the PS3 first as Square Enix and MS are trying to sort out how you ask people to paid for Xbox live then the MMO subscription, have fun with that 🙂

  3. I’m probably missing something here, but who is Leona Lewis?

  4. You don’t know who she is? You’re a lucky man. With any luck, you’ll have never heard of Simon Cowell either.

  5. Actually, I can take a bit of an educated guess as to why Leona Lewis is getting involved with this and it’s that out in the Far East they go ape for game soundtracks – which means that if you get yourself on the soundtrack to a game like FF then you’ve pretty much guaranteed commercial success in the entire Eastern market.

    Clever clever from her management team me thinks. Stuff all this nonsense about how videogames are being accepted in the mainstream. utter tosh.
