According to Forever-fantasy.net, the next issue of Famitsu Weekly will feature some exclusive new details on Square-Enix’s forthcoming PlayStation 3 title, Final Fantasy XIII.
According to the 'next week' feature in this week’s magazine, the next issue should have new information on the highly anticipated RPG title, which arrives on January 25. Whether this will include new images of the game in action or not is currently unknown.
Final Fantasy XIII (along with Final Fantasy Versus XIII and a mobile phone game) is a part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis, which is Latin for "The New Tale of the Christal". Final Fantasy XIII centres on a character named Lightning, who is banished from the kingdom of Cocoon into a lower world. Although we have only seen one character so far in the trailers, Lightning is still not confirmed as the main character.
Both Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be running on Square's White Engine, which takes full advantage of the PS3’s processor.
Final Fantasy XIII is currently set for a release in fall 2008. Stay tuned for further information as it becomes available.

Maybe only upto one year!? I hope.

This news has been around on the FFXIII fansites for about a week. Its also been confirmed that the magazine 'Dengenki Playstation' will also have news and developments. So we have two sources of Info! I can't wait for a translation or a scan.

I think maybe you should put this, "which arrives on January 25" in brackets close to the mentioning of the magazine. The way it is written suggests that is the date for the FFXIII release.;) I know if I believed it was the release date for the game and it turned out that it was for the date of an article for the game in a magazine, I would be almost suicidal with disappointment. You don't want to be responsible for some silly persons life ending...now do you :lol:

Most anticipated game I've ever had. I'd trade my 5 other most wanted games forever just to have FFXIII or versus in my hands now.
- 9:07am EST - January 16th, 2008
I'm looking forward to this game
- 9:19am EST - January 16th, 2008

Nice,But when will FF13 come out??? 2009,2010???
- 12:54pm EST - January 16th, 2008
My guess is, we will not see the US version till 09 spring. I just really hope they dont have the girl from the trailer as the main character. I've read a lot of sources saying SE said that she wasnt, but well see. I dont want to play as her. I want a another bada$ guy to play as.
