According to, 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.
