November Famitsu To Place Emphasis On Final Fantasy XIII

We can debate over possible release dates until we're blue in the face, but the only true indication of a game's progression is found in either official announcements or new media and information. Hence, when a magazine is set to unveil a ton of new details - not just more teasers - it's time to sit forward in rapt attention.

According to Final Fantasy Union, Enterbrain in Japan has announced that the November edition of Famitsu will boast a huge Final Fantasy XIII feature. In fact, it should be the focal point of the entire magazine, and it seems we can expect brand new content plus the unveiling of new features that ought to excite the FF followers out there. Unfortunately, we have no leaked information at this time, although you can bet we'll be anxiously awaiting the arrival of that Famitsu issue. As soon as it drops, you can be sure that scans and blurbs from the feature in question will hit the Internet, and we'll try to rake it all in for ya. Dare we hope that a release date will be prominently displayed? Or are we all still to assume that FFXIII still has a big, fat, ugly "TBA 2009" label? We'd like to think that, given this new feature revealing in Famitsu, Square-Enix has progressed significantly over the past few months in terms of development.

But all we can do for now is speculate. What do you think Famitsu will announce? We're expecting new gameplay details, certainly, but is there anything you want more than a release date? At least a Japanese one...?

i just hope its going to be more than names of a few more FF13 characters. but most probably they are going to elaborate on the world and story.

I hope it has no story leaks and puts more emphasis on Battle System, World map, and side quests.

I find that even the tinyest tidbit of info on the story spoils it.

*sigh*

You know, if SE really wants to appeal to Western markets, you'd think they'd release their flagship titles simultaneously with us and Japan. Y'know... as opposed to knifing us in the back for the sake of Mircrosoft's mammon of unrighteousness. Just a thought.

it'd be strange to see Enix make a previously HUGE exclusive multi to the benefit of a company that has a laughable market share in japan, only to decide to release it in japan early.

2 or 3 days? Whatever
a week delay? I'm a little miffed.
2 weeks+? Another reason to tell enix to shove it.

A japanese release date MIGHT come with it, but I wouldn't count on it... Even it it was, I'd expect to see either Q3 or Q4 stamped in bold letters on it.

VXIII next year? No way! Well, at least, I dont think so...
I would love to hear more about this one over XIII.
But most of all. I'd love to hear people stop hating on SE.

My guess:
Talking about how good the game is yet not saying anything new about it. It will still be TBA 2009.

360 version will be released on Nov 20. PS3 version so far as I know, its early 2009, so it will be months which is frustrating.

Agree with Karneli, this info is just to hype the upcoming demo, I'll eat my hat if they give a release date. I disrespect S-E's newfound M$ mentality, no I don't mean the new alliance, but the new attitude.
